After growing up in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, daughter of an unmarried mother, and receiving a guitar on her 16th birthday as a reward for passing her baccalauréat, Françoise Hardy answered a newspaper advertisement looking for young singers. She signed her first contract with the record label Vogue in November 1961. In April of 1962, shortly after finishing school, her first record Oh Oh Chéri appeared, written by Johnny Hallyday's writing duo. Her own flip-side of the record, "Tous les garçons et les filles" became a success, riding the wave of yé-yé music in France, with two million sales. Françoise Hardy (1963) is the second studio album by the French popular singer Francoise Hardy. Like many of Hardy's earlier albums, it was released with no title, except for her name on the cover. In the UK the album was released as Françoise Hardy - In Vogue. Numbered second edition of 1000 copies pressed on Audiophile Clear Vinyl (ACV).
