In the time of Madame de Pompadour, the hurdy-gurdy, like the musette, enjoyed a great success. It was considered to be on a level with other instruments and, as can be seen in various paintings, was highly regarded by the ladies of the aristocracy. Several books of instruction for the instrument were published, one of which was Michel Corrette's La belle vielleuse; virtuoso players such as Danguy and Dupuits extended its playing techniques to their limits. The instrument's charm was sung by various poets whose words were then set as cantatas. The unknown works that constitute this recording place it firmly in the French court of the time with its stylized pastoral diversions.

Fantastic French funk and psych – a very cool collection that goes way past the obvious hits of the 60s – to bring together some of the trippier tracks of the time! Despite the date range in the title, there's also some cuts here from the early 70s – the kind of wild numbers from a time when France was really breaking from some of the more familiar paths followed by American and British psych acts – as you'll hear on the set. There's loads here we'd never heard before – and titles include "Bungalow" by Triangle, "Mon Chameau" by Les Masters, "La Route" by Guy Skornik, "Wendy" by Rado Testen, "Elle Etait Belle" by Komintern, "La Petite Difference" by Jacques Filh, "L'Air Que Je Chante" by Papillon, "Les Aiguelles Du Temps" by Philippe Farre, "Rituel De Guerre" by Igor Wakhevitch, and "La Dame Deu" by Michel Zacha.

Enquête exceptionnelle ! Soixante ans après, sur la demande demande de Jaques Ozouf, quatre mille instituteurs ont rassemblé leurs souvenirs. Ils ont fouillé leurs greniers, retrouvé leurs carnets de comptes jaunis, déterré dictées et " préparations ", déballé leurs lettres et ces journaux à l'encre violette. Ils se racontent. Et de ces archives qu'il aurait été bientôt trop tard de susciter, renaît la France qui a formé la France.
