Bon Jour! | We’re having yet another BBQ here in Laurel Canyon. I’ll call it Part 2 in what looks to become a mini series of fun mixes dedicated to an “Idelic” kind of summer feast! This week we toast to all things French! After all, Wednesday was Bastille Day—the French equivalent of our July 4th.
I put this mix together with a day dream. Bastille Day being an 18th century version of our LA riots on the Sunset Strip during summer of 1966! I can picture these decked out French aristocrats in wigs roasting hot dogs in big bon fire made from thrashed rococo furniture. Of course there was an old record player with a stack old, now coveted, French “chanson” 7 inch 45’s.
