Various Artists "Le boom boom ! vol.2, more french exploitation beats from the sixties"

Here is the second volume of Le boom boom ! When i put the first volume online about two weeks ago i didn't expect such an interest into these long lost french sixties artifacts, but more than 25 comments and 400 downloads later (up to this day), i must admit that this interest is real.

You already know what you will find inside these folders, you'll find more Twist, more Hully Gully, one Madison/Twist and something that was taken out of the first sampler, The Surf.
In addition to some really good James Award orchestra tracks (check "Transcontinental" or "Tanganyka Twist" and tell if there are not prime examples of early sixties Shake/beat at its best) and what i suspect to be James Award orchestra in disguise (Pat Field 's excellent "Cincinnati Twist"), you will find tracks by some famous names like Eddie Warner (IM Library label headmaster), Claude Bolling or Jean-Claude Pelletier.
I have also decided to include in this "45rpm only" compilation, three tracks from an LP that was released in 1962 on a big label known worldwide as RCA Victor. Why ? Because we are talking about three killer tracks composed and recorded by someone whose records are gaining a growing attention, his name, Armand Migiani and his "Migiani Grand Orchestre".

I was just telling someone... Volume 2 might be even more fantastic than Volume 1, and both are infinitely superior to the "Dou da Dou" sampler that Vadim issued in '05.

sorry for the lack of answer for the last few days but i was away from my computer. First, thanks for all the comments, i'm really glad that you like these samplers, i had no idea there would have been such an interest in these recordings.
To Litlgrey, the "Dou da dou" sampler was more late sixties/early seventies oriented and can't really be compared to "Le boom boom !", but thanks for the compliment anyway.

Agent double-o-soul, j'utilise principalement Photoshop et Illustrator, je pourrais te fournir plus de détails sur la manière dont je procède si tu m'envoie un mail à l'adresse du blog.

you said: "Once again i had to split the original 130mo folder in two because of Rapidshare upload limit."

fair enough, thanks and thanks a million times but i hope you wont take me for wrong if i ask you, why do you persist on uploading stuff through rapidshare??? its pretty crap for downloading (have to wait around an hour in-between downloads) and by the looks of it its pretty crap for uploading stuff too. wots wrong with everyone??

Blogger Esquivel said...

i mean, everyone seems to be using rapidshare. what about or , and i mean if u really tend to upload files frequently, just switch from one site to another. makes it easier for the rest of us poor bloggers. and once again, THANKS FOR THE MUSIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! amazing

With all the rumors of a 2nd generation iPhone that includes 3G connections and GPS posted on the internet and the fact that Apple is no longer stocking the iPhone in stores, when exactly will Apple official announce the new iPhone. What I mean is, like are there any public Apple events that are about to be given like one of the famous Steve Job's keynotes. I want an iPhone but don't want to get, then a new one come out. Thanks for answering!

I was looking for an instrumental version of "Laisse tomber les filles" and came across your blog. Needless to say, I would love love LOVE to hear your compilations, it would be amazing if you could re-upload them if you ever have the chance. Thanks so much, Thom (a fellow Francophone music-lover from the UK) [deleted my previous comment because of a spelling mistake!]
