Twist Again au Ciné vol. 2 (La Revanche)
Second and most enjoyable entry in this series collecting French film theme songs (and French versions of English/American film songs, including Bond themes, oh yes) from decades past. This one covers the '60s/'70s and is a pretty strong set. Highlights include the Francoise Hardy-tastic 'Loin' by Joanna Shinkmus, the frankly disorienting 'Living Apart Together' by some bloke called Dave, the baroque-rocking My Way of Loving You by the Wallace Collection, and the sublime Who-referencing 7 Heures du Matin by Jacqueline Taieb. Also included is Scott Walker rarity 'The Rope and the Colt'.
Volume 1 is also worth checking out, but vol. 3 drifts right up to the 80s and causes depression.
