Cover text :
It was 25 years ago today... FRANCOISE HARDY taught France the difference.
A long haired and dark eyed teenager, she was the ideal girlfriend. She decided
to write her songs, sing her words and play her chords. She soon turned out to
be the only "minstrel" girl in the land of "show-biz" built puppets! At the age
of 20 she toured England and played several evenings at London's Savoy Club.
She even appeared in the UK charts somewhere between the Kinks and the Yardbirds.
She became the princess of Swinging London and from David Bailey to Brian Jones
everyone wanted to at least have a drink with her. Fashion stars and movie
directors alike threw themselves at her feet but her interest seemed to lie
somewhere else. She gave up growing international fame to make heart-felt
records, take care of a baby boy and his father.
Her success refused to die. So did the songs...
