The seven videos of French vocalese groups from the 1950s and early ’60s: Photos

The seven videos of French vocalese groups from the 1950s and early ’60s. As readers know by now, we love French vocal harmony groups.

For our, they’re like catnip. Fortunately, Rémi Carémel in Paris hosts In the Shadow of Studios, a devoted to these groups and French pop singers. His posts are in French (no translation button, sadly), but Rémi also stages a Facebook page with videos.
