Maman - Jean-Jacques

These days, you have the Junior Eurovision Song Contest for children who want to be a performer watched by millions of viewers who get excited at watching young persons do their thing. It always makes me think of pedophiles, but that's a different story.

In 1969, Jean-Jacques was just 12 years old when he participated in the 'real' Eurovision Song Contest. Singing 'Maman', he represented Monaco and finished sixth in a field of 16 contestants. He subsequently recorded the track in French, Spanish and Italian. This EP brings together four French songs, sold as a souvenir of the youngster's Eurovision appearance.

Found: Record fair, Utrecht, April 10, 2010
Cost: 2 euro
Tracks: 'Maman', 'Paris m'a dit je t'aime' / 'Les beaux dimanches', 'Il est vrai'
