Christine Delaroche - La Fille Du Soleil (1966)
La Fille Du Soleil was released in 1966 by Christine Delaroche, a French TV and film star. Its melody in the verses is basically Secret Agent Man with a chamber-pop spin on it. On the whole, the production style reminds me a bit of Vashti Bunyan's Train Song, which was released the same year.
Information on the single is scarce, but it looks like the bottom-side may have been La Porte á Coté on the French 45 at least (EPL 8548).
