Johnny Hallyday :: Hey Joe (1967 en Francais)

If you dug the French Freakbeat series posted earlier on the Drunkard, then Johnny Hallyday's 1967 French cover of "Hey Joe" may be the coolest thing you'll download this month.

A real renaissance man, ole Hallyday, like fellow Frenchman Jacques Dutronc, fashioned himself both as an actor and as a songwriter/performer. No clue what his post sixties output was like, but this track is swingin'.

Big nod to Spoilt Victorian Child for their assistance . . .
