Product Description

Product Description

'I was for a very long time passionately in love with her, as I'm sure she's guessed. Every male in the world, and a number of females also were, and we all still are' David Bowie. 'She was the ultimate pin-up of most hip, Chelsea, beat bedroom walls, and I know for a fact, many of the groups who were notorious and slowly becoming successful, such as the Rolling Stones, Brian Jones and Mick Jagger, the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and many other groups were all desperately interested in having Françoise Hardy become their girlfriend in some way.' Malcolm McLaren. Françoise Hardy's dreamy, languid, melancholy, angelic, elegant and seductive 1962 debut album featured the winsome 'Tous Les Garçons Et Les Filles'(All the Boys and Girls), a hit single all across Europe that sold more than two million copies. Françoise was just eighteen when she recorded this remarkable collection of (mostly) original songs. The public were captivated by her charm, responding in part to some of the same qualities they had found in the emerging bossa nova; a singular, understated voice, intensity, intelligence, the simplicity and sophistication of the songs. Here, the original classic album is augmented by Italian versions of these and other songs recorded under the auspices of Ezio Leoni. In 1963 Hardy was invited to represent Monaco at the Eurovision Song Contest where she performed her own composition, the lovely L'amour S'en va. She came sixth. (Nana Mouskouri and Monica Zetterlund were among the competition and they didn't win either). She re-visited the UK singles chart in 1965 when her 'Dans le Monde Entier' (All Over the World) reached the Top Twenty. Françoise has been described as 'Liz from Billy Liar made real', 'Garbo meets Greco and The Epitome of the Modern Woman'. Bob Dylan dedicated a poem to her (At the Seine's Edge).

5.0 out of 5 stars Francoise's Debut in Pristine Form! 29 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
Very nice CD issue of Francoise's debut LP - so OK yes I do have this on LP, but top marks to Cherry Red for the remastering on the CD release as it brings out some of those elements you may not be aware of, or that had gotten buried in the mix on previous issues (which includes those CD issued by her french label Vogue in the late 80's) - the key element being FH's voice. The other big selling point is the 2nd half of the CD which gives you Francoise's rare as heck Italian language set which by my reckoning must have come out around early '63 - and again very nice to have as it means that my somewhat well-loved Italian EP can now have a well deserved retirement! Though one question does remain - are Cherry Red/El going to release the rest of FH's 60's recordings done for Vogue - including the German language set which'd work well as bonus selection for the 'Mon Ami La Rose' album recorded in London with Charles Blackwell! And what would be even nicer is the stuff that still in the archives - which'd make a great collection in its own right! Depends on Mlle Hardy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff! 30 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the other favourable reviews here - this is an excellent release. It's an odd thing: the songs aren't especially brilliant and Françoise Hardy wasn't that great a singer, but there's something about the combination of material, performer and band that makes this a really fine album.

I am, of course, completely biased in that I only have to hear her singing "les yeux dans ses yeux, et la main dans sa main..." to be transformed back into the hopelessly lovestruck young adolescent I was when I first heard these songs. Even allowing for this, they're really good of their kind and of their period. The remastered sound quality is remarkably good and it is great to have the elusive Italian album here too.

People like Carla Bruni have made a pretty decent fist of this sort of thing more recently, but in my view this is how it's really done. This is not just a classic, but terrifically enjoyable as well. Very warmly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belatedly on cd 13 Jan 2013
By howard
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An excellent release. Well remastered. Although the first French album (tracks 1-12) has already been issued as a cd,this is a first appearance on cd of the Italian album(tracks 13-22).Well done Cherry Red. The informative and well illustrated leaflet oddly enough makes no mention of Francoise's last 3 cd albums.
