Jacques Dutronc's first band. Ventures-alike instrumental. Fort Chabrol became a French expression since an incident in the summer of 1899 in the wake of the Dreyfus case, when Jules Guérin, leader of the Ligue Antisémite, barricaded himself with quite a few followers in the Rue de Chabrol in Paris. For more than a month they resisted the siege while they were supplied provisions thrown by supporters from neigboring roof tops.
Fantômes [for Vogue; Eddie Mitchell's future band, without author Dutronc, then member of El Toro et les Cyclones, who'd also cut a version, also for Vogue where they disliked confusion; B-side of Le Diable en personne (Shakin' All Over)]
José Salcy et ses Jam's [first vocal version, as Le Temps de l'amour; lyrics by André Salvet, who's original title (Le Temps des copains) was outvoted by Lucien Morisse, program director of Europe 1, who feared confusion with the eponymous TV series; his alternative (the first lyric line) landed him co-credits]
Colette Rivat [second version]
Françoise Hardy [idem; also in Italian as L'Eta Dell' Amore]
Jean-Claude Pascal [idem]
Jacques Dutronc [author; idem]
April March [as While We're Young]
Sylvie Vartan [as Le Temps de l'amour]
Vanessa Paradis [idem]
Dutronc was an art director at Vogue when newcomer Françoise Hardy was in need for some new songs. Not to be confused with Marc Aryan's Le Temps de l'amour ('64).
