AllMusic Review by

A delightful and wholly unexpected CD, reissuing two French-language albums cut by Clark and released in France in the mid-'60s, mixing rock and pop sounds freely. The sound is excellent, the annotation is incredibly thorough, and the original 24 cuts have been augmented with three bonus tracks, "La Mer Est Comme Toi," "L'Agent Secret," and "C'est Ton Affaire." That last track is genuinely first-rate, and it's all worth hearing, though the highlight has to be Clark's rendition (in French) of Ray Davies' "A Well Respected Man."
