At a time of amazing mid 60s pop music in France - the time of yé-yé and Godard and beautiful girls and boys - Jacqueline Taïeb is one of the greatest. A Tunisian-French teenager she sung with incredible phrasing, played tough guitar and wrote her own songs. She could actually do everything. I’d swap a 2.30 Taïeb song over the entire recorded works of most of the rock classic gang. Chuck them in the sea and get into something good, n’est-ce pas?
