L'un des noms d'acteur d'Elvis Presley "Deke Rivers" que les Frenchies auraient prononcé "duck" = "canard" ou "deck" = "porche". Hervé (Forneri, de Nice ex Chats Sauvages) choisit une phonétique plus simple qu'il est impossible de massacrer. En réalité, Dick est le diminutif américain de Richard. Malheureusement pour Dick, ce mot prendra plus tard la signification de "b*te"...Néanmoins, il assume et en rigole plus ou moins. Cet EP est sorti en juin 1963 sur Pathé EG 696 (B1). "J'en suis fou" = "Love me do". Dick est accompagné par "Les Gladiators" (des Anglais) sous la direction de Paul Piot.

The Beatles had symbolized optimism, their disintegration symbolized optimism fading. In the end the Beatles left us with not just a collection of fine songs (recorded by countless other artists as well as by themselves), but also with then reminder of a spoiled dream; they left us with the most nostalgic music in the history of rock. This picture cover is the most beautiful ever made in Western Europe (Italy, PARLOPHONE DP 570, Aug. 30, 1968). Hey Jude topped the UK chart #1 (17/09), #1 (24/09), #2 (26/09). In October, this single hits the UK chart #4, #3 & #2 while Mary Hopkin topped on 12, 19 & 26/09/1968. In November, the last chart positions in 1968 were #10 & #11.

Engineered by Ray Gerhardt. Richard Carpenter: "I happened to hear the Beatles' "Ticket To Ride" being played as an "oldie" one day in early 1969 and upon hearing it this particular time, decided the tune would make a nice ballad. We chose the resulting recording as our debut single. Released in October of 1969, it remains one of my favorite Carpenter's recordings. In 1973, Karen re-recorded her drums and lead vocal on the track for its inclusion in the Singles 1969-1973 album. (Karen was not satisfied with her original performances.)
