Henri Salvador, Jean Yanne, Gillian Hills et le Ramirez Cha Cha Band : Cha cha cha
45 rpm  EP Barclay 72383 recorded on June 14, 1960
 

known pressings and dates : FRANCE : 06/60 - 09/60 - 11/60 - 02/61

A : [Allo Brigitte (Babylone 21-29), by Henri Salvador, Jean Yanne, Brigitte and the Ramirez Cha Cha Band (N. Maine - G. Liferman) 2'50

B : Près de la cascade (By a waterfall) (with Henri Salvador and the Ramirez Cha Cha Band) (K. Irving - S. Flour - S. Fain) 2'11
Cha cha stop (with Henri Salvador and the Ramirez Cha Cha Band) (H. Ithier - D. Ortiz - F. Andréoli) 2'45

Notes :

        

The female voice at the end of the "Allo Brigitte" song has sometimes been credited to Gillian Hills. The authors of this discography have listened a good number of times to this particuliar track and  they came to a negative conclusion. Indeed, the legend on the record mentions a unidentified Brigitte for this track.

A CD has been released under the title "Yé-yé collection : 20 are sixties oldies vol. 1", with "Allo Brigitte", credited to Henri Salvador, Jean Yanne and Gillian Hills. For the above-mentioned reason, we didn't include it in this discography.
The catalog of the American firm Recordfinders contains a 45 rpm single (reference MERC71649), with the tracks "By a waterfall" and "Cha cha stop", both credited to the Ramirez Cha Cha Band. We of course ordered a copy (october 2001, and october 2003), but we received twice the same answer : the record was "out of print and would soon be deleted from the catalog". Are those two songs the Gillian Hills version or instrumental versions?

Note :

According to the booklet for the "Twistin' the rock vol. 9" CD, the title of the original version of "En dansant le twist" is "Mama said". The music sheet for this song has "The fish", and this seems better suited to the English lyrics.
