A contribution now from the land of "Chocolate" to the land of "Eiffel"....It seems that he wrote all the songs...title of the L/P I assume is "Greatest Hits" the record company stretching the truth again !!....Perhaps the "Adamo" fans can answer that one !!!

Sylvie Vartan

Names familiar but not heard her voice till off the "Wikipedia"to find out more info!!

 Great what you can find on there...wish it was there in the 50's it would have saved me walking from record shop to record shop looking for information because itn those days it seems that I always was interested in the obscure recordings that nobody had heard of !!.....after listening to it I like her voice and production is typical 50's 60's style !! Grrrrreat !!!

Sylvie Vartan (born Sylvie Georges Vartanian; 15 August 1944) is a French singer and actress. She is known as one of the most productive and tough-sounding yé-yé artists. Her performances often featured elaborate show-dance choreography, and she made many appearances on French and Italian TV. Yearly shows with then-husband Johnny Hallyday attracted full houses at the Olympia and the Palais des congrès de Paris throughout the 1960s and mid-1970s. In 2004, after a break in performances, she began recording and giving concerts of jazz ballads in francophone countries.

Re-Post Requested by Ian

Here's another voice that we "Brits" didn't take care of !!...I am sure that with the right management and the right songs she would have made it big !!...she has got that big power ballad voice !! just listen to "Your The Voice" & "New York New York" !!!....We Brits are a bit slow on the uptake or maybe "Brenda" didn't fit the so called "Pop" image !!! give it a listen too if you havn't heard of her work....once again you wont be disappointed !!!!!
