Le premier bonheur du jour - Vogue 1963
Hardy wrote nine of the songs herself, which is no surprise since she’d so far always written the majority of her songs so far. Blackwell wrote two songs, “Non ce n’est pas un reve” and “Le temps de souvenirs” which are both quite nice. The most memorable songs are found among Hardy’s own, though.
“Ce petit coeur” sound like a hit, and the tastefully arranged ballads “Je Pensais” and “Tu peux bien” are other higlights. Also the upbeat Quel mal Y’a-lt-il A Ca” is a favourite.
The great title-track which was written by Bourgeois and Riviere has a nice 12-string guitar, which I assume was played by Hardy herself.
A great album, with no weak tracks.
