Nights At The Roundtable – Francoise Hardy – 1971
Heading into mellow territory this weekend, with the inimitable Francoise Hardy and a track from the early 70′s. More than anyone else, Hardy put the “yè-yè” genre on the world map in the early 1960′s. But unlike many of her contemporaries, she outgrew the kitschy Pop stereotype and emerged as a major talent, not only as a singer-songwriter, but as a multi-faceted talent who is still a strong and vital force in World Music.
Here is a track from her 1971 album La Question, Bati Mon Nid.
An alternative to an otherwise high-voltage Saturday night. No?
