Jacqueline Taieb - A meteoric rise, but a return to school in 1970.

Continuing our week of "ye`-ye`practitioners of the 1960's; Jacqueline Taieb. Though probably less known than the likes of Francoise Hardy and France Gall, Taieb was nonetheless a very popular singer in the Ye`-Ye` tradition even if it was for a short time. Achieving a goodly degree of popularity from 1966-1970, Taieb decided to put her career on hold and focus all her attention on going back to school. She returned to singing in 1988.

Tonight's track is one of her hits from 1967. Le Coeur Au Bout Des Doigts was a good sized hit for her and a follow up to her debut smash 7 Hueres du Matin .
