this is the 5th self-released music cassette album by Daniel Johnston. the best way to learn about Daniel Johnston is by listening to his songs. Or you can get a good idea about the guy from watching the documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston. but since this is Album of the week and not Movie of the week you should listen to Yip/Jump Music: Summer 1983. i really like the art work too. website has some info and more art.
I got this 60’s French Cuts Pop Music stuff pretty much by accident and it is blowing my mind. Reminds me of the best ever British Nuggets Box. Seems like they like the hip British 60’s stuff in France. There are some covers i could do without but it’s really cool to hear what’s happening in French popular culture during the French New Wave. This what i found out about this compilation “This collection has been put together by some Francophiles in Munich, who have selected tracks that are popular in their club.” If i were you i’d put this on random and listen to it for a week straight. (oh yeah. good luck organizing it in itunes, since it’s all different artists.)
p.s. Bridgette Bardot is foxy.
