1 - HARDY, FRANCOISE - CANTA IN ITALIANO - (LP) 
DOXY


Growin up in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, daughter of an unmarried mother, receivin a guitar on her sixteenth birthday as a reward for passing her baccalaureat, Franoise Hardy answered a newspaper advertisement looking for young singers she signed her first contract with the record label Vogue in November 1961. In April 1962, shortly after finishing school, her first record "Oh Oh Chri" appeared, written by Johnny Hallydays writing duo. Her own flip side of the record, "Tous les garons et les filles" became a success, riding the wave of Y-y music in France, with two million sales. Franoise Hardy Canta per Voi in italiano: an album issued shortly after the 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 y-y) sound, the additional tracks in Italian are a sweet counterpart.A numbered limited edition of 500 copies pressed on Audiophile Clear Vinyl (ACV).

6 - HARDY, FRANCOISE - HARDY, FRANCOISE (PD) - (LP) 
DOXY


A seminal album of the French ye-ye era, Francoise Hardys self-titled debut (known in the US as The "Yeh-Yeh" Girl From Paris!) was released shortly after her debut single "Oh Oh Chri" in 1962. The success of this album, along with its hit "Tous Les Garons Et Les Filles", made the eighteen-year-old French bombshell a huge star in Europe and an icon of the French fashion and music industries. Along with other ye-ye girls of the sixties, like Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot, France Gall, and Sylvie Vartan, Hardy exuded a kind of sexy innocence that made French women the most liberated and the most desired in the world.

7 - HARDY, FRANCOISE - IN ENGLISH - (LP) 
KLIMT


Francoise Hardy in English is a studio album of the French popular singer Franoise Hardy. English covers of rock, folk, and pop tunes are the backbone of this rather heavily orchestrated album, which may be Hardys most overlooked 60s recording. The songs are catchy and the production, arrangements, and near-operatic backup harmonies excellent, at times almost Spector-esque. Fans of Marianne Faithfulls mid-60s work can find something of a French equivalent here, though Hardys material was stronger and her delivery more confident.Limited edition of 500 copies.

TRACKLISTING: 01. This Little Heart (more - Hardy) Ce Petit Coeur 02. All Over The World (more - Hardy) Dans Le Monde Entier 03. However Much (more - Hardy) Et Même 04. Its Getting Late (hardy - Meredith) Il Se Fait Tard 05. Only Friends (miller - Hardy) Ton Meilleur Ami 06. Say It Now (skelton - Hardy) Dis-lui Non 07. Just Call And Ill Be There (blackwell) Le Temps Des Souvenirs 08. The Rose (more - Coulier - Lacome) Mon Amie La Rose 09. Only You Can Do It (blackwell) Je Vex Quil Revienne 10. Its My Heart (meredith - Hardy) Tu Jeux Bien 11. Another Place (more - Hardy) La Nuit Est Sur La Ville 12. Autumn Rendezvous (meredith - Riviere - Bourgeois) Rendez-vous Dautomne 13. Find Me A Boy (hardy) Tous Les Garons Et Les Filles 14. I Wish It Were Me (hardy - Samyn) Jaurais Voulu 15. Catch A Falling Star (pockriss - Vance) 16. You Just Have To Say The Word (more - Hardy) Tu Nas Quun Mot A Dire 17. So Many Friends (more - Hardy) Lamiti 18. I Will Change Me Life (costanzo - De Chiara - Morricone) Se Telefonando

8 - HARDY, FRANCOISE - L'AMITIE - (CD) 
FUTURE DAYS


A mix of Hardys own songs, Blackwells songs, and tracks from writers including Jean-Max Rivière and Grard Bourgeois (who wrote the title track), the sound focused on stirring, heavy pop, not least in the yearning "L'Amitie." "Im still very proud of L'Amitie," says Francoise, whos wont to undervalue her own work. "The French lyrics are so very moving."Between 1962 and 1966, Francoise Hardy released one French-language album per year. Each, strictly speaking, was eponymously titled, and each was collected from a series of contemporary four-track, seven-inch, picture-sleeve EPs-pop musics main format in France, known as le super 45. In them, we see the maturing of one of the decades most singular talents-a pop singer with the heart of a chanteuse, a singer-songwriter in an age before such a thing was known, and a style icon who valued privacy and modesty. Remastered from the original tapes, Future Days present the first five Francoise Hardy albums in their original French format, on deluxe LP and CD.By 1965, Franoise Hardy was truly international. Shed hung out with The Beatles and The Stones, played high-profile shows in London, established a working relationship with British producer Charles Blackwell, and appeared in the film What's New Pussycat? She was also a fashion icon seen in the pages of Marie Claire and Vogue and on the cover of Elle, and her first US album was issued that year.In France, Hardy was to release album number four, the second album to be recorded in London, where her celebrity was rapidly growing-at odds with her natural shyness. "In London, it was the first time Id been made to think I had a certain charm or charisma," she says now. "Thanks to the time in England, I became aware I could be seductive." LAmiti, with its evocative, close-up album cover and late-night sound, is the result.Produced by Jacques Wolfsohn alongside arranger Charles Blackwell, the sessions were notable for some distracting visitors. "Mick Jagger was there a few times with various entourages of his at Pye [Studios]," recalls Blackwell. "There was a long seat in front of the mixing desk where they used to sit."Hardy was, however, not the epitome of the swinging 60s idyll; she was an intellectual, into yoga and Buddhism and astrology, and she still noted French chanson singers George Brassens and Jacques Brel as favorites alongside Elvis, Dionne Warwick, and The Rolling Stones.Despite her new links to the world of fashion, the tentative steps into film, the growing international awareness, and the attention she brought sheerly through her presence, music remained Franoise's focus, and her fourth album more than demonstrated this.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Ce Petit Coeur 02. Il Se Fait Tard 03. Tout Ce Qu'on M'a Dit 04. L'amitie 05. En T'attendant 06. Je T'aime 07. Non Ce N'est Pas Un Rêve 08. Quel Mal Y A-t-il A Ca? 09. Tu Peux Bien 10. Le Temps Des Souvenirs 11. Je Pensais 12. Dis Lui Non

10 - HARDY, FRANCOISE - LA MAISON OU J'AI GRANDI - (LP) 
FUTURE DAYS


Yearning songs delivered with an intimate authority, at odds with the perception of Hardy in Britain and beyond, where she was seen as an ultra-fashionable, ultra-hip Parisian sophisticate, but totally in line with everything shed ever striven for musically.Between 1962 and 1966, Francoise Hardy released one French-language album per year. Each, strictly speaking, was eponymously titled, and each was collected from a series of contemporary four-track, seven-inch, picture-sleeve EPs-pop musics main format in France, known as le super 45. In them, we see the maturing of one of the decades most singular talents-a pop singer with the heart of a chanteuse, a singer-songwriter in an age before such a thing was known, and a style icon who valued privacy and modesty. Remastered from the original tapes, Future Days present the first five Francoise Hardy albums in their original French format, on deluxe LP and CD.Hardys fifth album was a collection of English-language recordings. For her next, released in October 1966, the focus was back on her home market in France, where things were changing quickly. Writing much of her own material was no longer a novelty-her future partner, Jacques Dutronc, was doing the same, and artists like Antoine were following Dylans lead.1966 was the year Hardy met Dylan, who demanded an audience with her at his Paris gig and later performed for her at a party. "It was only later that it occurred to me that he was singing I Want You because he actually wanted me," she says. Francoise said Dylan was not part of her world. As La Maison Ou JAi Grandi proved, Hardys world was perfect and fleshed out and set-five albums in, she had a sound, mood, and feel all her own.Recorded in London, the hit "La Maison Ou JAi Grandi" solidified what Hardy did best: marrying French chanson songs to epic production influenced by Phil Spector, Dusty Springfield, and George Martin; the toweringly powerful "Je Changerais Davis," which opens the LP, is a prime example.Though Hardy had formed a strong working relationship with producer Chris Blackwell, nine of the twelve tracks were arranged by Johnny Harris, known for his work with Petula Clark and Tom Jones. Although the artist and language were French, the album drew from an internationalist, polyglot world-six tracks were penned by Hardy, the remainder cherry-picked from French, British, and Italian songwriters.And despite its varied sources, the album was a cogent artistic statement. Francoise had returned to acoustic sounds like with her earliest songs, accompanying herself on a Spanish guitar, and was reasserting her own vision of her music.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Je Changerais D'avis (se Telefonando) 02. Si C'est Ca 03. Rendez-vous D'automne 04. Je Serai Là Pour Toi 05. Peut-être Que Je T'aime 06. Il Est Des Choses 07. Comme 08. Mes Jours S'en Vont 09. Qu'ils Sont Heureux 10. Surtout Ne Vous Retournez Pas 11. Tu Es Un Peu A Moi 12. La Maison Où J'ai Grandi (il Ragazzo Della Via Gluck)

12 - HARDY, FRANCOISE - LE PREMIER BONHEUR DU JOUR - (CD) 
FUTURE DAYS


For the tracks on Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour, Hardy was produced by arranger Marcel Hendrix. As well as her own compositions, "L'Amour D'Un Garon" saw Hardy adapt Burt Bacharach and Hal Davids "The Love Of A Boy." In a contemporary interview, she said she would not perform songs where there was no sense of the words touching her intimately. "A song-it is your own story, or it is nothing," she said.Between 1962 and 1966, Francoise Hardy released one French-language album per year.

Remastered from the original tapes, Future Days present the first five Francoise Hardy albums in their original French format, on deluxe LP and CD.Like her 1962 debut, the cover of the following years Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour had Hardy staring enigmatically at the listener. On the album itself, the sound had changed in line with Hardys solidifying vision and voice; where Tous Les Garons Et Les Filles was produced by a series of collaborators who struggled to understand her style, Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour gave fans the most significant insight so far into the identity of Francoise Hardy.In 1963, at a time when Serge Gainsbourg was tentatively dipping a toe into pop and the term ye-ye was only just being coined, Hardy was a rare thing: a singer-songwriter with heaps of her own material but not a folk singer in any sense. Hers was pop music that took the weight of chanson on its shoulders. Here, "Comme Tant DAutres" says, "I know well that life is short, and Ive been around"-hardly "She loves you, yeah yeah yeah."It was another year before Hardys records were issued in Britain and another year before she started to brush up against the likes of Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and The Stones, but life was changing for the 19-year-old.Her unique sound would take her far, despite admitting now that she "had no ambition. At the beginning, my ambition was to record something. I thought anything outside France was an impossible dream, but I did what I could to make it come true. It was like a current that carried me."

14 - HARDY, FRANCOISE - MON AMIE LA ROSE - (LP) 
FUTURE DAYS


Hardy, working with arranger Charles Blackwell, a former protg of Joe Meek, set about creating a new interpretation of her glacial, existentially yearning music: part pop, part chanson, part soul music. On one hand, she was marrying yearning melodies with lyrics examining feelings of otherness. On the other, she was interpreting the music coming from Britain and America-both that of Phil Spector and country, too.

She would not record again in France until 1968, instead employing a series of British producers and musicians that even included then-studio guitarist Jimmy Page."It was very difficult for me to convince my record company to go to London for the production because my artistic director was having lots of success with very bad arrangements," she says dryly. "Since they were having success with bad arrangements, they could continue like that."

15 - HARDY, FRANCOISE - MON AMIE LA ROSE - (CD) 
FUTURE DAYS


Hardy, working with arranger Charles Blackwell, a former protg of Joe Meek, set about creating a new interpretation of her glacial, existentially yearning music: part pop, part chanson, part soul music. On one hand, she was marrying yearning melodies with lyrics examining feelings of otherness. On the other, she was interpreting the music coming from Britain and America-both that of Phil Spector and country, too. Blackwell was the first arranger with whom Hardy was happy, and Mon Amie La Rose was the first album she thought of as more than an afterthought. "She chose her own songs and was very in control," says Blackwell. "She was very much a perfectionist."Between 1962 and 1966, Francoise Hardy released one French-language album per year.

16 - HARDY, FRANCOISE - TOUT LES GARCONS ET LES FILLES - (LP) 
FUTURE DAYS


Hardy was immortalized in 1964 in a poem by Bob Dylan, she associated with The Stones, and dined with Beatles Paul McCartney and George Harrison. She also soon gained more creative control over her music, and she now distances herself from these early recordings where this was not the case. "Even if I had been able to say something about the production," she says now, "maybe I would have been listened to, but I didnt know anything." In the albums title track, Hardy sang about being a soul in torment, and this is the Hardy that emerged-a complicated, pensive outsider, part pop singer, part chanteuse, and utterly unique. Between 1962 and 1966, Francoise Hardy released one French-language album per year. Each, strictly speaking, was eponymously titled and each was collected from a series of contemporary four-track, seven-inch, picture-sleeve EPs-pop musics main format in France, known as le super 45. In them, we see the maturing of one of the decades most singular talents- a pop singer with the heart of a chanteuse, a singer-songwriter in an age before such a thing was known, and a style icon who valued privacy and modesty. Remastered from the original tapes, Future Days present the first five Francoise Hardy albums in their original French format, on deluxe LP and CD.Raised by her mother in Paris, Hardys upbringing was strict, and she was, she notes today, "a very, very shy person." Records and Radio Luxembourg provided escape and inspiration-her two loves were Chanson Franaise, the Gallic style of Edith Piaf and Charles Aznavour, and rocknroll. The Everly Brothers, she says, were a "lightning bolt."Sent to The Sorbonne to study political sciences, Hardy instead pursued a career as a singer, auditioning for a number of labels before Johnny Hallydays Disques Vogue snapped her up, intending to market her as a female rocker-the track "Oh Oh Chri" here gives you a window into their vision. Hardy had other ideas and was determined to record her own songs, written in French, too. The runaway success of one of her own tracks, the iconic "Tous Les Garons Et Les Filles," proved Hardy right.
