German born, French-based actress Uta Taeger released one single in 1969, 'Hier, aujourd'hui, demain' (Yesterday, today, tomorrow) backed with the fuzzed-out 'Baudelaire'. Here she performs the A-side, a cover of The Shangri-Las' 'Past, Present, And Future', on the TV special Barcarolles à Barcarès, which aired on August 30th, 1969. The entire show is filmed on a boat in the title location because... well, why not? The French love wordplay so much, I would not put it past them to have conceived of this simply to pair the words Barcarolles and Barcarès. Poor Uta looks like she might blow away, but remains elegant.

    hi, I hadn't come here for a while! Very glad you have resumed your blog! Well, for some odd reason I can't comment the new entry... that one about The New Not-so-ingenue Magazine ;) Anyway, I just wanted to greet and congratulate you for your return... Sure I also will return from time to time... (Although I will try to be quieter, at least until I get a decent English) :)

      Hi Fran! Thank you for your very kind comment. I love getting comments, so please feel free to leave one any time - your English is great!

      And thank you for letting me know about the comment issue on the new post. I think there is a clash with a plugin I added, I'll try to fix it now.

      Edit: Should be working now.
