INCLUDES 4 BONUS TRACKS
This special LP release presents one of Hallyday’s most iconic albums from his early career: the masterpiece Tète à Tête. It was the last album he recorded for the Vogue label. It was originally issued in 1961 as a 10-inch record, and contains some of Johnny’s finest moments during his early years – when he gained fame as France’s answer to Elvis Presley and the fabulous rock & roll legends of the ‘50s.
In addition to the original album, this WaxTime collector’s edition contains 4 bonus tracks, which were cut during the same recording period. The bonus material consists of self-penned tunes like “Tu m’plais,” and “Laisse les filles,” plus Aznavour’s “Il faut saisir sa chance,” as well as the excellent “Souvenirs, souvenirs” (widely regarded as a classic of French rock). A versatile vocalist, Hallyday’s inviting style lent itself to edgy rock & roll, danceable twist and romantic ballads.
This is an essential set for listeners who want to hear the early sounds of Johnny Hallyday.
