010 G15348-A JE TE RENCONTRAIS DE LE BRULIER 12908/2041
Pm 12830 as by Robin and Soileau; Pm 12830 is reported bearing matrices 15347 (Ma mauvais fille) and 15345-A La valse de la rue canal; Pm 12908 bears matrix 15347;
There’s confusion about the matrixes. GE 15345 should be a different tune from GE 15345-A and GE 135345-B.
