Various Artists "Le boom boom ! vol.3, even more french exploitation beats from the sixties"

At last, here is the third volume of Le boom boom! i bet those who were waiting for it already know what to expect, so here is a short description of what is contained within this nearly 150 Mo folder.
30 instrumental or wordless vocal tracks, mostly from 1962/63 by the usual bunch of artists with americanized pseudonyms or not (James Award, Teddy Rush, Henri Renaud, L. Marischal...), there are also some newcomers like The Monks (who have nothing to do with the Garage Rock band of the same name but were lead by Jean Claude Pelletier) or the really good Rocky Twist and his Bips Bips.

Accent has been put on Madison and Twist for this third one, with some personal favorites of mine, like Leo Petit's frantic version of Kili-watch or the very jazzy Starting hit by Bill Video and quite a lot more in fact.
When i started this serie i wanted to make available to the whole world something that i knew would stay undocumented. These records are not rare (even if they are quite difficult to find in excellent shape) but i'm sure that to find them outside of France would be a challenge so, stuck between the Yeye and the anti Yeye movement, here is my final statement on the great lost sub Yeye genre.

Don't forget to drop me a line in the comment section if you enjoy it so that i will know that this hard work has not been done in vain.

Thanks to all of you for the comments, believe me, they are much appreciated. I don't think there will be a fourth le boomboom! volume. It's not that i run out of material but i'm concentrating on other samplers as well as full lps and singles.
Licorice Pizza, i accept the invitation.

Nice work whoops! One of your covers there was used on a record I have too:

Is it just me or is a nicely put together compilation much more satisfying than yet another possibly cool album?!

11:34 AM  
Blogger whoops said...

yes delicado, i know this Geo Daly record and to add some confusion, the EP you have was also released on the Gala Des Variétés label with a totally different cover (certainly to avoid confusion with the Jean-Claude Pelletier one).
It's true that sometimes, a nicely put together comp is cooler than a LP rip, unfortunately, this is not often the case since most of the samplers shared are lacking cover art or correct tags.

Excellent work on an under-rated and overlooked genre! I've used all the great single cover art for the booklets in my three burned volumes. My friends are impressed with your compilations, and we groove to them while drinking (I print your credits and website on the back). One question: Is Pat Field a non-de-plum for James Award, or did I somehow manage to mislabel some of these tracks? James Award comes up in the credits for titles pictured by other artists. Just curious.
What a great series. Merci.

Hi anonymous, nice to hear that you and your friends enjoy my comps.
James award comes up in the credit only for the instrumental tracks on B sides on these 45rpm. The artists named on the covers are usually the singers who cover popular songs on A sides. Those cheap labels were only trying to cash in and were taking advantage of the fact that records by original artists were expensive for teenagers with nearly no money. It's great that they felt the need for instrumental fillers.
Yes, Pat Field is more or less an other James Award's pseudonym. Usually the Pat Field & Les Pumas de L'oklahoma tracks are the vocals ones but sometimes even the instrumental tracks are credited to them.

Avec un peu de retard, merci pour tes encouragements number06.

Great compilation. Obviously, you've spent a lot of time on this. I wish I would have found your blog early enough to get volumes 1 and 2. Is there any chance you will re-post them in the future? Thanks.

Sorry, Whoops. I did find the link for Volumes 1 and 2 that you re-upped earlier this year. I was able to download Volume 1, but so far, not Volume 2. Thank you.

I don't know if my samplers stand the comparison with the "Frolic diner" and "Las Vegas grind" volumes Johnny Graveyard, but thanks anyway. If only someone in each country could do a similar serie of compilations, it would be great. Maybe we could even create something like the "Long lost cheap instrumental Twist/Hully-Gully/Madison/Surf records appreciation society" or something like that.

Natasha, if i was in Los Angeles i would bring along all my Leboomboom! 45rpm to your "Chez les yéyé" party.

JerryHump2, i will try to reupload the second volume next week.

Hi Whoops!

I'm new to this blog, and I must say that it has made me fall in love with library music! Especially because of your compilations "Le boom boom !"

I listen to vol. 2 and vol. 3 constantly, so there is of course a huge grief in my day-to-day living that the first volume is nowhere to be found.

Would you mind considering re-uploading vol. 1 of Le boom boom ? It wold make me a very happy library music-fan.

Best regards
