Etienne - Guesch Patti

Guesch Patti was born as Patricia Porasse in Paris, France on March 16, 1946. She decided to begin a singer career and recorded two discs in 1965 that passed unnoticed. In 1984, Patti participated in the trio named 'Dacapo', and had her first solo hit in 1988 with 'Étienne', which was certified gold disc in France. It was a number one hit in France and Italy. In the Netherlands, the single peaked at number 22. It was played often on the radio, but I was not impressed.

It was only later, when I discovered the album 'Labyrinthe' and some great songs on it, that this single became interesting: the B-side is 'Un espoir', one of the standout tracks on the album.
