Joyeux anniversaire, Jacques Dutronc

The fact that so few people outside of France are familiar with the name, Jacques Dutronc, is criminal. His sixties and seventies sides are every bit as good as the more renowned, Serge Gainsbourg, and his writing for future wife, Francoise Hardy, should have assured Dutronc’s place in the consciousness of music lovers worldwide. Leave it to the French and Francophiles to accord the man his proper place as a legend.










Great footage of Jacques and Francoise in the studio, nearly fifteen years before their marriage

even more amazing clips, including Dutronc ripping up a version of Les Cactus, with a small combo
