AllMusic Review by

It would be easy to dismiss this obscure, no-name LP on a budget label (with ungainly jacket art, no less). But the eight tunes here have that Esquivellian "wordless chorus" sound, and it all works fairly well, whatever it is. "Mack the Knife (Moritat)" is particularly interesting and bound to please all fans of early-stereo-age, quirky instrumental pop. "Don't Leave Me," "Ouah! Ouah! Ouah! Ouah!," "Milord," and "Broken-Hearted Melody" also are tops in this not-very-French (but possibly Parisian) album.
