The famous song is one of those that rocked the summer of 1969. It will also be a worldwide success. Story of a tube.
At the end of the 1960s, the two-track single gradually replaced the four-track, or EP in the jargon of professionals. It is nothing short of a revolution that is starting: the discs will no longer need special prints for the jukeboxes, which are then the main tools for broadcasting (with the radios) of the songs. Side A is mostly reserved for tubes and B for a generally minor title. The exceptions remain. Especially the unusual 45 turns with a tube on each side. In 1969, Joe Dassin, son of filmmaker Jules Dassin, who, like his father, dabbled in a bit of cinema before changing lanes, taking that of song, already had a good number of hits. “Guantanamera”, “Les Dalton”, “MarieJeanne”, “Whistling on the hill”, “La Bande à Bonnot”, “Le petit pain au chocolat”, sorry.
