Limited Edition Vinyl 7" in Deluxe Gatefold-Sleeve! "French Boutik & Popincourt Sing The Jam" is one of those ideas that is just so crazy it might work! Modern French pop groups French Boutik and Popincourt are both huge Jam fans and were thrilled to be asked to participate in the latest Specialized compilation cd in honor of the group.
Since 2012, the Specialized Project has released six highly acclaimed tribute albums featuring international groups covering The Specials, The Beat, Madness, The Clash & Bob Marley), all to benefit the Teenage Cancer Trust.
French Boutik chose "The Place I Love", from The Jam's 1978 "All Mod Cons album", with Popincourt opting for "Tonight at Noon" from the previous year's "This is the Modern World." After overcoming their understandable intimidation covering classics from their heroes, both managed to come up with their own personalized takes, and were satisfied enough with the result to propose a separate split 45 for vinyl fans in addition to the songs inclusion' on the Specialized "Gifted" cd compilation.
"The Place I Love" becomes French Boutik's "L'Endroit que j'aime," a psyche pop hymn with church bells ringing in a misty cowboy and film noir filled dream, while Popincourt's take on "Tonight at Noon" also has a dreamy feel with a more relaxed pace than the original, rearranged with subtle harmonies, organ and harpsichord.
All profits from the sale of the vinyl will benefit the Specialized Project.
