The legendary Francoise Hardy is pretty much the sonic epitome of 1960’s French cool, and Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour is only her second record, but her self-penned songs already sound perfectly Hardy. A sleek set of recordings, carefully remastered and reissued on 180g vinyl reissue by Light In The Attic and Future Days Recordings.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 20th October 2015
On Hardy's second album Marcel Hendrix was brought in as arranger and producer which maybe helped giving the album a broader and more international appeal. Hardy still wrote the majority of the songs, though this time more outside songwriters were brought in. Some of the strongest songs were actually covers, such as the title-track "Le premier bonheur du jour". On the other hand Hardy still shows her great song-writing abilities on great songs such as "J'aurais voulu" and "Nous tous". The outstanding track, though, is the excellent title-track.
