2015 repress. A seminal album of the French yé-yé era, Françoise Hardy's self-titled 1962 full-length debut, released in the U.S. as The "Yeh-Yeh" Girl from Paris! in 1966, appeared shortly after her 1962 debut single Oh Oh Chéri/J'suis D'accord.
The success of this album, along with its hit "Tous les Garçons et les Filles," made the 18-year-old French bombshell a huge star in Europe and an icon of the French fashion and music industries. Along with other yé-yé girls of the '60s 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.
