To start a typical french record. From one of the older records I own. It is a cover of the french national anthem "LA MARSEILLAISE" by one of the best french band OBERKAMPF. This version was on a flexi and to have it you had to send a stamp to a fanzine and you had the record in return. It was in 1982....
