sylvie vartan

Often dismissed as a lightweight singer, compared to ye-ye compatriots like Francoise Hardy and France Gall, most of her records were French-language covers of American rock songs. But she was one of the first successful ye-ye singers, and her name is iconic with French pop til today!

Sylvie Vartan - Garde-Moi Dans Ta Poche

I'd recommend this greatest hits collection of Sylvie's. While it isn't exhaustive (I'd like more of her 60s songs), it's a good value for money buy.
