Another non Bossa Nova post, a lovely record…
Paris, 1968, heady days indeed…

Generally speaking, the LP’s of Françoise Hardy were untitled. Her name would appear on the sleeve, no number or anything else. So she has released at least ten LP’s called simply Françoise Hardy.
For the sake of convenience this 1968 release is known as Comment te dire adieu?. It is largely comprised of cover versions and adaptations, and contains songs by Jack Gold, Phil Ochs, Leonard Cohen, Georges Brassens, Serge Gainsbourg and Antonio Carlos Jobim as well as interpretations of a poem by Loius Aragon and Ricky Nelson’s Lonesome Town. M. Gainsbourg was also responsible for the very clever French adaptation of Goland & Gold’s
It Hurts to Say Goodbye (Comment te dire adieu?).
