Sylvie Vartran's family emigrated from Bulgaria to Paris in 1952 when she was just a child. Soon she would fall in love with the cosmopolitan Parisian music scene as well as American jazz and rock and roll, and by 1961, at the young age of 17, she began her recording career, one that would prove to be among the most illustrious in French pop music of 20th century. Known for her tough and sultry vocals, Vartran was an early star of the yé-yé scene and these first singles show why. Featuring many French language re-workings of rock and R&B hits from The Isley Brothers to Mel Torme, Paul Anka to Del Shannon, this collection is essential for any fan of '60s French pop.
