Françoise Hardy 'En Anglais' LP
180 gram vinyl, 2016 remaster.
French icon Françoise Hardy first displayed her breathy, measured vocals in the early and mid-'60s. Immensely popular in her native country, her career spans five decades.
“En Anglais” is a very rare album in English by Françoise Hardy, released on vinyl for the first time since 1968. English covers of rock, folk, and pop tunes, including renditions of Tim Hardin's "Hang on to a Dream", Phil Ochs' "There But For Fortune", as well as interpretations of "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," "Let It Be Me," "That'll Be the Day," and Elvis Presley's "Loving You". The Europop-flavoured "Empty Sunday," was reworked in part from a tune recorded earlier on a solo single by Yardbirds singer Keith Relf ("Shapes in My Mind").
