Francoise Hardy Canta In Italiano on Colored Import LP
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
Growing up in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, daughter of an unmarried mother, receiving a guitar on her sixteenth birthday as a reward for passing her baccalaureat, Françoise Hardy answered a newspaper advertisement looking for young singers and signed her first contract with the record label Vogue in November 1961.
In April 1962, shortly after finishing school, her first record “Oh Oh Chéri” appeared, penned by Johnny Hallyday’s writing duo. Her own flip side of the record, “Tous les garçons et les filles” also became a success, riding the wave of Yé-yé music in France, with two million sales.
Françoise Hardy's Canta per Voi in Italiano was an album issued shortly after her debut with some of its songs and additional numbers re-recorded in Italian. While the original album is a classic of French pop, ‘60s AM magic, and of course a forerunner of the yeh-yeh (aka Yé-yé) sound, the additional tracks in Italian are a sweet counterpart.
