    The popular history of French music in the 60s often pits two opposing sides against each other: the polished 'varieté' of the yéyé stars like Françoise Hardy against the socially-engaged singer-songwriters like Léo Ferré, but the story is far more complex.

    Alongside their better-known work, stars like Dalida, Dutronc and Sheila recorded music that happily sits next to more 'serious' - and often forgotten - socially engaged artists like Jehan Jonas and Michèle Arnaud. This compilation shines a light on the meeting point between these two seemingly disparate styles and the musicians behind them.

    Digging deeper into the stories behind the music there is a unifying theme behind the different worlds: more often than not the players behind both styles were the same. Sometimes dismissed as journeymen that were operating at the outer reaches of their ability, the oft-ignored session musicians and arrangers held a wealth of knowledge and 'savoir-faire', not only in the lyrics and composition but also in the musical ability, recording, mixing and above all in the arrangements.

    Even Serge Gainsbourg - perhaps the only artist of the time who managed to combine huge popular and critical success - collaborated with arrangers (and cult figures in French music) like Michel Colombier and Jean-Claude Vannier for his epoch-defining classics, and it is the work of these unsung figures that is celebrated here.
