French rock: 123 Essential Albums (2010)

Postby Pierre » Wed Oct 01, 2014 2:51 pm

Posted by Steph on the old forum. Thanks man! Although it's credited as "Philippe Manœuvre présente :", it's a collaborative effort by 56 critics (probably mainly the Rock & Folk staff, given what the list looks like).

Edit: some clean-up and notes (where I could, some of these acts are very obscure).

- Les Chaussettes noires, "Le 2.000.000ème disque des Chaussettes noires" (1962)
