She loves you, yé, yé, yé! Louise Cordet s pop career may
have been short and sweet but she did leave enough beat
behind her to win her place in the hearts of both brit and yé
yé girl devotees.
From French parentage and good Royal stock (Prince Philip
was her godfather), she quickly rose to 1962/1963 s pop
royalty with former Shadow Tony Meehan as her recording
manager producing her one and only hit, Jerry Lordan s
cute as they come I m Just A Baby .
She further boasted an address book that contained Paul
McCartney, who she regularly hully gullied with, and Gerry
Marsden, who wrote the Pacemakers subsequent hit, Don t
Let The Sun Catch You Crying , especially for her. A bit of a
Merseybeat pin up, Louise would tour with both The Beatles
and Gerry and the Pacemakers later that year.
The Sweet Beat of Louise Cordet collects together all of
Louise s recordings for the Uk Decca label including her last
single featuring two very different sides to Louise - Dionne
Warwick's dramatic Don t Make Me Over
possibly her best recording, a beat style workout of Mary
Wells lyrically adventurous Motown track Two Lovers
featuring Jimmy Page on guitar.
We are also able to include the French Decca EP recordings.
All tracks, aside the main hit, are reissued for the first time,
and all are mastered from the original Decca tapes.
