Henri Debs et son combo – Tu as calé le moteur
Language – French
Translation – You stalled the engine

Firstly, I love the sleeve design of this record. However, despite having a car on the cover and in the title, I have a sneaky suspicion that this song is not about automobiles…

Henri Debs was from Guadeloupe, and this salsa-tastic single is from 1971. There is some excellent keyboard action going on here, and I especially like how the same little musical motif begins and ends the record 🙂
