Francoise Hardy and Her Contemporaries - Various Artists

Francoise Hardy and Her Contemporaries
Françoise Hardy breathed new life into the pop scene during the early 1960s. She brought beauty, intelligence, mystery and a disarming naturalness that the public responded to by making her a household name before she was out of her teens. Françoise embodied the style, vitality and attitude of the extraordinary decade that lay before her. She was important then and her personal and artistic influences over the ensuing years would also prove to be considerable.

Françoise Hardy's remarkable debut album was released in 1962, at the peak of a momentous era for popular European culture; what with the gathering strength of the Nouvelle vague that culminated in such film masterpieces as Jean-Luc Godard's Une Femme est Une Femme and Vivre Sa Vie and François Truffaut's Jules et Jim (a wild popular and critical success that featured a performance by Jeanne Moreau which is surely one of the most vivid in the history of cinema). The brilliance of the ever-precocious Serge Gainsbourg, the media's continuing obsession with Bardot's every gesture. The emergence, in America, of Sue Lyon (chosen by Vladimir Nabokov personally for Stanley Kubrick's film of his hot book, Lolita), of "The Queen of Screamers", Mina in Italy and, in France, of Godard's Danish muse Anna Karina, Bulgarian-born Sylvie Vartan and Roger Vadim's latest discovery, (the "New BB") English rose, Gillian Hills, who collectively would herald the Yé Yé Girl phenomenon.

Françoise Hardy and Her Contemporaries surveys that pop scene and includes such rare beauties as Sue Lyon's version of Lolita Ya-Ya and four tracks by the late Christiane Legrand; a member of Les Double Six, the original lead soprano in the Swingle Singers and the vocalist who dubbed the part of Madame Emery in Jacques Demy's Les parapluies de Cherbourg, the music for which was composed by her brother Michel Legrand. Christiane also sang the part of Judith in his Les demoiselles de Rochefort.

Return To Paradise: A History Of Exotica

Released on 20/09/10. Strange, Sultry and Seductive...fierce, fascinating and feverish - here are sounds to quicken the heart-beat; the tropical fantasy of a hidden world. A woman¹s voice calls, hypnotic and compelling; drums repeat the haunting command and the music weaves a spell of mystery.

From the early fifties, with the onset of international air travel, Exotica became a massively popular musical trend; making it possible for middleclass Americans to simulate an authentic travelogue experience - to India, Africa, Cuba, or the South Seas - in the comfort of their suburban homes.


This public looked to Les Baxter, Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, Yma Sumac, Korla Pandit or Robert Drasnin to provide (in contrast to the prevailing rock and roll scene) a mystical combination of Oriental, African and Latin sounds, decorated with natural effects gathered from the sea, sky and forest.


Exotic music was originally conceived with Ravel's Bolero and Debussy¹s Pagodes. It left the classical world and entered pop through Les Baxter. In 1950 he created Voice of the Xtabay with four octave Peruvian singer Yma Sumac and a year later released the seminal work of exotica, his tone poem Ritual of the Savage (Le Sacre Du Sauvage).

Voice
Edda Dell'Orso is the sound of Italian cinema. Her astonishing voice recognisable to anyone who has experienced the landmark spaghetti western films made by Sergio Leone; films that were in the mid sixties scored by a young whippersnapper called Ennio Morricone. The recent revival of interest in mid-century post-modern art and the restoration of so many wonderful Morriconne scores has led many to discover Edda Dell'Orso. Her work is the epitome of intelligence and sophistication. It is utopian in its scope and its potential is vast.

Morricone High – The Trippier Side Of The Morricone Genius
Morricone High' showcases the composer's work for Italian psychedelic and art movies of the late sixties & early seventies. Ennio Morricone's beautiful melodies are decorated by Edda Dell'Orso's spacious wordless vocals; 'Scusi, Facciamo L'Amore?' (with the harmony singers I Cantori Moderni) (about the travails of a Neapolitan gigolo), 'Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene' (sex and crime Italian style) 'Veruschka' (model on a psychedelic trip) and 'La Donna Invisible' (arty Mediterranean love triangle) are all sublime examples of the composer in his pomp. Eventually the layers of sensuality give way to the atonal but no less refined, 'Notte E Bambole' from the weird, dreamlike 'The Short Night Of The Glass Dolls' (about catalepsy in art deco Prague) and the equally intense '1970' for Dario Argento's Giallo 'Il Gatto A Nove Code' starring Karl Malden as a blind writer of crossword puzzles who stumbles on a murderous plot.

Made In England
 Long established as one of the minor classics of the British psychedelic pop genre, the Bulldog Breed album Made In England was recorded in mid-1969 but not released by Deram Nova until the beginning of the following year - by which time its thrilling Spirit-of-'67 mod/psych sound and commitment to hook-laden, sub-three minute songs was fatally out of sync with the self-indulgence and bombast of the nascent progressive rock era.

Françoise Hardy
Françoise Hardy's dreamy, languid, melancholy, angelic, elegant and seductive 1962 debut album featured the winsome ‘Tous Les Garçons Et Les Filles’ (All the Boys and Girls), a hit single all across Europe that sold more than two million copies. 
Françoise was just eighteen when she recorded this remarkable collection of (mostly) original songs. The public were captivated by her charm, responding in part to some of the same qualities they had found in the emerging bossa nova; a singular, understated voice, intensity, intelligence, the simplicity and sophistication of the songs.
Here, the original classic album is augmented by Italian versions of these and other songs recorded under the auspices of Ezio Leoni.
In 1963 Hardy was invited to represent Monaco at the Eurovision Song Contest where she performed her own composition, the lovely L'amour S'en va. She came sixth. (Nana Mouskouri and Monica Zetterlund were among the competition and they didn't win either). She re-visited the UK singles chart in 1965 when her ‘Dans le Monde Entier’ (All Over the World) reached the Top Twenty.
Françoise has been described as "Liz from Billy Liar made real”, "Garbo meets Greco” and "The Epitome of the Modern Woman”. Bob Dylan dedicated a poem to her (At the Seine's Edge).
"I was for a very long time passionately in love with her, as I'm sure she's guessed.  Every male in the world, and a number of females also were, and we all still are" David Bowie
"She was the ultimate pin-up of most hip, Chelsea, beat bedroom walls, and I know for a fact, many of the groups who were notorious and slowly becoming successful, such as the Rolling Stones, Brian Jones and Mick Jagger,  the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and many other groups were all desperately interested in having Françoise Hardy become their girlfriend in some way.” Malcolm McLaren
