France Gall was a prolific French vocalist and performer, remembered as one of the central figures of the 1960's yé-yé pop movement. Aligning catchy, spirited rhythms with lighthearted lyrics and drawing from the beat music a la early Beatles and Hollies, the yé-yé artists promoted a sort of new freedom of expression and breaking down of social barriers in post-WWII France. Third Man Records is beyond honoured to bring this music to a larger audience by issuing the first authorised North American vinyl pressings of these titles, some of the most brilliant highlights from Gall's catalogue.

Baby Pop is not only an important album for France herself, it is also a hugely important record for the entire yé-yé scene. Baby Pop hinted at the musical direction that yé-yé was headed, much in the same way Revolver and Pet Sounds did in the UK and USA. Baby Pop is more mature and varied than her earlier more bubblegum releases. You will still find a wonderfully cheesy tracks like "L'Amerique" here and there, but with the impossibly infectious title track and songs like the Gainsbourg penned "Nous Ne Sommes Va-T'en" and the groovy Farfissa driven "Faut-Il que Je T'Aime," we welcome a new France Gall and say hello to some of the finest pop music ever released in French or any language.
