HIGH-DEFINITION PREMIUM VINYL PRESSING FOR SUPER FIDELITY

This special vinyl release presents Hallyday’s Salut les copains!, which marks Johnny’s first long play on the Philips label (recorded shortly after leaving Disques Vogue). One of Hallyday’s finest albums from his early period, the LP kicked off the so-called “yé-yé” era of French pop and made him a full-fledged teen idol. Its title makes reference to the famous broadcast created in 1959 on the Europe 1 radio program.
