Some even think they had a relation and lived together for some months. Others just think he had a crush on the beautiful chanteuse - like many schoolboys in the Sixties.
The only thing that is certain is taht they have met a few times. The first time was at the beginning of the Seventies. Producer Joe Boyd wanted more people to know the acts on his Witchseason label. A good way to do so was to get some famous artist to cover their songs. Possibly for contractual reasons he didn't chose to compile simply some songs from Fairport Convention, The Incredible String Band and Nick Drake on an album. Instead he booked En Seine Et Oise - Charles Trenet - V.I.P.
studiotime, in Julyand hired a few session singers. One of them was his own girlfriend, Linda Peters - later to marry Richard Thompson and become known as Linda Thompson - and a young man called Reginald Dwight.
He was just starting a career as Elton John and payed the rent by covering hitsongs of the day for cheap compilations. Some hunderd actetates of those new versions were pressed and sent to potential clients. She contacted Boyd to let him know that she thought the songs were great and that she would like him to write some for her. A meeting was arranged in her Paris apartment. That visit wasn't exactly a great succes. Arriving in the apartment on the Isle St. Louis Drake withdrew in himself.
It was too good to refuse, so he sold Witchseason to Island Records. Some of the finest British folkmusicians were hired for the Hardy sessions.
Richard Thompson played guitar on a few tracks. Another was Fotheringay guitarist Jerry Donahue. He confirms that Nick showed up at least once to watch the sessions. I was just making some friendly conversation. He was very quiet Facts Of Life - King Crimson - November 14, 2003 - Ulster Performing Arts Centre, Kingston, New York between questions; there would just be a gap.
Then I'd ask another question. And each time I did, his eyebrows would raise way up, his eyes would widen, and it was like an effort to kind of get the answer En Seine Et Oise - Charles Trenet - V.I.P. to satisfy the situation at hand - 'I've gotta deal with this - somebody's putting me on the line, they've actually addressed me and Gene Vincent & His Blue Caps - Be-Bop-A-Lula / Woman Love (Shellac) me a question.
I will do my best to get an answer out. It was very bizarre. I've never known anybody like him. And he wasn't unfriendly.
But you just really felt like you were putting the guy on the spot when you'd ask the most simple harmless questions. I thought he had a real rough time with himself. It was impossible to get to know him, certainly in that brief encounter. But his shadow hangs over the album. If he had written any songs for her they must have ended up on Pink Moon, which he recorded around the same time, during two sessions in October When that album, like the two before, disappeared without making much noice, the Youngman sank even deeper in a depression.
He returned to his parent's house, but even there he felt like a stranger. In it appeared like he was getting better. He recorded some songs in February and June, but this time he found it hard to sing and play guitar at the same time. In the first week of October he took up an invitation of some friends to visit them in Paris, where they lived in a barge on the Seine.
But when he rang the bell, he didn't recognize the voice on the parlophone. After a few weeks he returned home where he wanted to improve his French before going back to France. But that was nevcer to be. Four weeks later he was You - Clout - A Threat And A Promise. It is the soul which comes out of his songs that touched me Κώστας ΚακαβελάκηςΠοιήση Τάκης Αντωνίου - Εγώ - romantic, poetic As well as the very individual timbre of his voice, which adds to the melancholy of the whole thing.
Nick seemed - and was no doubt - so shy, so wrapped up in himself, that in retrospect I'm astonished he managed Its Happening - Stiletto Boys - Attitude Adjuster come and see me two or three En Seine Et Oise - Charles Trenet - V.I.P.
, even knowing that I appreciated his enormous talent. Communication between us was never great, but I had the impression that to know himself appreciated, loved, gave him confidence; and that to feel that his silence presence was accepted was enough for him.

Dutronc was not only pursuing a successful singing career, he had also launched an acting career and was rapidly becoming a major French film star. The singer was soon back at work in the studio, recording a new album "Message personnel" under the direction of Michel Berger.
Despite several artistic differences between the pair during the increasingly fraught recording sessions, the album proved to be a huge commercial and critical success. She had put her days of being a fashion model well and truly behind her and began dressing in a more comfortable, laid-back style, sporting jeans and baseball boots.
The En Seine Et Oise - Charles Trenet - V.I.P. song she wrote during this period was "Que vas-tu faire" a song for which Jean-Michel-Jarre composed the musical arrangements. Fans were excited by this new release, believing that it heralded the arrival of a new album. In fact, the singer was devoting an increasing amount of time and energy to her astrological charts and music seemed once again to be taking second place in her life.
But the song was later re-recorded as a single, Hardy inviting Lubrano - who had composed the music for the song - into the studio with her and helping him launch his singing career. Hailed as an "essential" Hardy album, "Clair-obscur" received rave reviews from the critics who praised Hardy's performance and the superb arrangements on the album.
Hardy invited a whole host of guest stars into the studio with her and the new album included a brilliant duet with the singer's partner Jacques Dutronc - whom she had not teamed up with on record since "Brouillard En Seine Et Oise - Charles Trenet - V.I.P.
la rue Corvisart" in The duet, a cover of an old French classic, "Puisque vous partez en voyage", was chosen as the first single release from the album. Later that year Hardy and Dutronc decided to move from their home in the city's 14th arrondissement where they had lived since the 60s and buy a new flat together near the Etoile where they became the perfect modern couple, each living on their own floor. In fact nothing could be further from the truth! Hardy's extensive career.
The songs on this new album were contributed by a crack team of songwriters and composers including the singer's loyal collaborator Alain Lubrano, Benjamin Biolay, Thierry Stremler and Jacno. Thomas also played guitar on several tracks. Inthe French En Seine Et Oise - Charles Trenet - V.I.P. Maurice Chevalier went to New York for a few concerts, and he asked to a young singer to come with him; he was called Hugues Aufray; it was early in his career.
Bob asked few questions about this beautiful young girl At this time, Bob had yet to meet the singer. In Olympia, on May 24th,Bob Dylan was on stage for his first concert in France - all of show-biz was there in the first row.
So she went backstage and Bob asked her to meet him after the show at his hotel the famous "George V", the most expensive in Paris She was 22 years old, rather shy, and she did not really like this kind of party with so many people. In any case, Bob found her in the crowd, and she went in his bedroom only to listen to his Felicia - Herb Alpert And The Tijuana Brass* - !!Going Places!! songs.
After this time, Hardy and Dylan never saw each other again. In fact, Monsieur Hardy rarely bothered to contact his daughters at all and he would contribute precious little, financially or otherwise, towards his daughters' upbringing.
The solitary adolescent was often sent to Austria during the school holidays to perfect her German and it was here that she would spend hours listening to her favourite music and composing her own work.
The burgeoning young singer would soon spot a record company advert in the local newspaper seeking new up-and-coming artists and plucked up the courage to audition. On November 14at the tender age of 17, the young singer was offered a recording contract with the Vogue label.
It was while working on a photo shoot for the magazine "Salut les copains" that the young singer would make an encounter which would change the rest of her life. Indeed, her incredible popularity appeared to know no bounds. This career reached new heights at the end of when the young singer was booked to appear at the legendary Paris music-hall, L'Olympia.
Nevertheless, she became was a huge success in Germany. Collection: Photo.
