I found myself whistling this song this morning...completely out of the blue. I don't even have a record from French troubadour Michel Polnareff. My sister was a big fan and had a serious crush on him, even managing to go to one of his concert. So I went onto Spotify first and to Youtube...
It looks like an eternity since the last Record Day Store, but this year I was determined to go and visit a few stores in the Sydney CBD and report back to you. There was definitely a buzz in the three stores I visited, and a big queue in front of Red Eye Records. Fish Records in our beautiful Queen Victoria Building (QVB pour les intimes...) was busier than normal, although not much vinyl there, but still some animation with a singer - Alicia Crossley - and a group of baroque musicians playing some Swedish music from the 16th century - The Marais Project. Unfortunately, my duties a the designated family cook prevented me to stay and listen to them. I will have to buy their CDs another day. Our friend Elodie Sablier was virtually present with her two albums, but is away from our shores at the moment going on to new adventures and hopefully a third album sooner than later...
HAPPY WORLD RECORD STORE DAY TO ALL OF YOU!
