Discovering French Music Volume 3

The third volume of the Discovering French Music series, has a wide diversity of styles. Rock is well represented, with a cover of the rock'n'roll hymn Be Bop A Lula by Les Chaussettes Noires, some prog rock with Gong (not a 100% French band), and a funny new wave hit single by Indochine.

There are also two metal bands, Lofofora and the world famous Gojira. If it's too violent for you, you can rather listen to the lullaby of Henri Salvador or a 1866's song recorded by the father of chanson Charles Trenet. There are also some pop-chanson (Variété) with hits of Antoine, Françoise Hardy and Juliette Gréco. To finish, some danceable songs, with the 70's electronic music of Jean Michel Jarre, Katerine and the ragga-dancehall song of guadeloupean (Antilles) Admiral T.

I want to thank you for this magical treasure. You've made me reminisce my finest memoires in France. But the problem is, the files are not downloadable anymore. So, if I give you my mail address, is it possible for you to send me the link, please ? I would really appreciate that.
Thank you.
