After the rock ‘n’ roll of 1950 came the rock of ’60/’61 and then the twist_ which in France lasted until the following summer, 1962, when the Madison landed. It was between the twist and jazz_people danced it in rows_and it spread like wildfire, stoked by a “prince” named Billy Bridge, and immediately picked up by every rocker/twister in France. You might think it was a flash in the pan, but people still dance the Madison today! These recordings chosen by FranCois Jouffa and Pierre Layani represent the first musical collection of French-language Madison from that period, complemented by examples of the trend that already followed it by the end of the year: the Mashed Potatoes_ Are you ready for the big M?
