The Electronics: Chanson de l'Eurovision
The Electronics were a French "budget" group, covering current hits on a series of LPs sold in French supermarkets. Their version of The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" appeared on Chanson de l'Eurovision, the title means "Song of the Eurovision." The Eurovision is the network of European TV channels that arranges the annual (and horrible) Eurovision Song Contest, aka Melodi Grand Prix. The first track here is a cover of Vicky Leandros' "Après Toi" that won the contest for Luxemburg in 1972. Lev..uhm..God only knows why they chose to throw "Dixie" in here.
