2nd July 2018: Patricia – Je bent niet hip
Artist: Patricia Title: Je bent niet hip (You are not hip) Language: Dutch Still in the Netherlands…this tune was the B-Side of a single from 1967. It’s rather jolly!
Artist: Les Chabroll’s (1965) Title: N’y Touche Pas Language: French On my holidays, so this track might give you a clue to where I am…this band are from Antwerp! Looking forward to sharing some more travel-related tunes over the next few days! Antwerp – fashion, chocolate, beer, diamonds and frites…what’s not to love?
Artist: Hibari Misora with The Blue Comets Title: Makkana Taiyo (Red Sun) Language: Japanese To celebrate Japan getting out of their World Cup group, we have a great tune from 1967 (I really like The Blue Comets!). Wishing them luck – it is nice to see a non-European team doing well.

Artist: 펄시스터즈 (Pearl Sisters) Title: 님아 Language: Korean This song is great! It is from a 1968 album that seems to be split – Side A features songs by The Pearl Sisters, and Side B has tracks by Shin Joong Hyun & Soul Sound (featuring legendary Korean guitarist 신중현 / Shin Joong Hyun – I think he arranged the music...
Artist: Marie Laforêt Title: Ivan, Boris & Moi Language: French Fabulous but slightly strange to see Jean Yanne, Sacha Distel and Serge Gainsbourg dressed in Cossack-style behind Marie Laforêt in this video. Please note: the film quality deteriorates from about half-way through, but it is still great! From the Sacha Show, 1968. It was his show, so he could wear...
