• Probably the weirdest record of France Gall's career, "1968" shows the influence of British psychedelia as it came across the English Channel.Like Merseybeat and other musical forms before it, though, psychedelia was twisted by French musicians into something idiosyncratically Gallic. Even though echoes of Revolver and Sgt. Pepper (and others) are all over this, it's still identifiably French, and unmistakably France Gall. Her normal producer/arranger, Alain Gorageur, is largely absent, with most of the album overseen by a new face on the French pop scene, an expatriate Englishman named David Whitaker. Whitaker's a lighter hand on the baton than Gorageur, and so there's an airiness to this album missing from some of Gall's earlier records. It suits her high-pitched voice beautifully, especially on the almost Pet Sounds-like orchestral opener "Toi Que Je Veux" and the enchanting "Bebe Requin."
