Description

For the first time beyond its borders, Vive Le Rock n Roll: The Unruly World of French Rock n Roll 1956 to 1962 celebrates how France made rock n roll its own. A rowdy era where anything went!

A companion to RPM Internationals best-selling and glowingly reviewed collection of early Johnny Hallyday recordings The Sound, The Fury (Retro 949), Vive Le Rock n Roll takes a wild ride through an exotic musical world like no other.

Definitive liner notes by MOJO magazines Kieron Tyler in the illustrated booklet reveal the two phases of French rock n roll: before and after Johnny Hallyday's 1960 eruption over France.

The album takes in Johnny Hallyday's first home recordings from 1958, the earliest French tracks by Vince Taylor, the leather-clad maverick France adopted as their own, Jacques Dutroncs group El Toro el les Cyclones, Mad Men soundtrack starlet Gillian Hills and French icons Eddy Mitchell and Dick Rivers when they were at their most rowdy with Les Chaussettes Noires and Les Chats Sauvages.

RPM Internationals latest journey to France, follows definitive releases by Antoine, Jacques Dutronc, Emily, France Gall, Chantal Goya, Johnny Hallyday, Pussy Cat, Stella and Sylvie Vartan. RPM International is the authoritative home of the greatest music from Frances past.
