"Parentheses" . . .
The release of Françoise's new album is announced for November 27th.
This album will contain 12 duets with various artists.
"Le temps des souvenirs" . . .
FNAC announced the release of a DVD containing Françoise's songs; due out November 28th.
Some details are already listed in the Totally-Hardy blog.
If things proceed as expected ... but obviously they don't proceed that way :
The first release of "Françoise's complete work on CD" is delayed now until mid 2006 because of a "strategic decision" of the record company. Hard to understand...
If things proceed as planned, we can expect "Françoise's complete work on CD" until end of the year, at least a first stage containing the Vogue period...
I'm told that the work for a set of CDs containing Françoise's complete work is in progress at BMG/France. As far as possible the songs will be newly remastered and mixed from the original tapes. It is planned to include also all non-french songs and versions. Well, let's hope and wait...
In order not to give any promotion for piracy disks
the BudKon items are removed from the discography now.
You will find a link to the first Françoise Hardy blog on the "links" page.
Thanks to Carl-Gustaf E. who sent me this nice paper doll picture from

Since the start of the Discographie in summer 1996
she had a good home at Compuserve's homepages ... until now.

Four years after "Clair-obscur", eight years after "Le danger", ...
the new studio album "Tant de belles choses" is announced for November 16th 2004.
I just took a look a Virgin's official Françoise Hardy site and found ... nothing but cobweb ...
EMI and Virgin now have started to sell Françoise's CDs as copy-protected disks.
In fact, this is not worth to call it a protection agains copying - at least for all
fellows above Kindergarden age - but it prevents from playing the tracks
on PC drives. And there is no guarantee at all, that this disks will work on all
"regular" audio-CD players.
Well done, EMI / Virgin. You really know how to annoy your customers !
The discography welcomes all visitors
with a counter beyond the 1000 and an improved layout - I hope you like it ...
