Beautiful songs, beautiful voice and a beautiful looking woman. This is a soft and gentle stroll through Francoise Hardy's English spoken output from 1968 to 1972. It's a mix of covers (Randy Newman, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Leonard Cohen and others) and her own compositions. Most of the tracks are very good, my favourites are 'All because of you' and the exquisite 'Sunshine' - with Francoise's wistful, beautiful voice combining with such sad lyrics - painting a million visions of long lost days - stunning. Overall, the compilation (68.40mins) has great sound quality, it's both crisp and clear. The cd comes with a 12 page colour booklet. Recommended.
P.S Coming soon 'Ace' records compilation - 'Tres Chic! More French Girl Singers of the 1960's' which contains 2 Francoise Hardy tracks - volume one is great, check em' out.
