Les Irresistibles - The Essential Hits Singles And More (Magic Records 2009)

Les Irrésistibles (The Irresistibles) were a boy band during the late 1960s and early 1970s, whose members were Americans living in France. The lineup consisted of lead singer Jim McMains on keyboards and rhythm guitar, his identical twin brother Steve McMains on bass, Tom Arena on lead guitar, and Andy Cornelius on drums.

The band formed in 1966 as The Sentrys, when the members were teenage classmates at the American School of Paris. They developed a following among the local American community by playing cover versions of contemporary hits. They came to the notice of recording scouts, and eventually signed with CBS, who marketed them as Les Irrésistibles. The arrangement included British carmaker Triumph as a corporate sponsor, and the company's TR5 roadster featured prominently in the group's first video and early publicity photos.
The band's first release and biggest commercial success was "My Year is a Day" (music by William Sheller and lyrics by Tom Arena), which came out as a single in 1968. The song spent several weeks at number-one on the French pop charts, and a French version by Dalida appeared as "Dans la Ville Endormie".(wikipedia)

This was a great sixties pop band who had outstanding great singles back then. They are nearly all gathered here. 25 tracks all.
