Johnny Hallyday's thirteen titles, chosen by his wife from 1965 to 1980, come from all periods of his career. Among them are "The Music I Love" (1973), "Gabrielle" (1976), "Hold the Night" (1961), "Something from Tennessee" (1985), "I Love You" (1969) Blood for Blood "(1999), composed by their son, David Hallyday, for the eponymous album, which is by far the biggest sale of Johnny (2 million copies).

Sylvie is simple
Two other titles will complement this album in memory: "The Message," the spoken text that Sylvie Vartan recorded in memory of her "first love" and "In my life" of the Beatles, the song Sylvie and Johnny listened greatly they were together.
The album's front page is a wonderful black and white photo made by Jean-Marie Périer, photographer yéyés in the sixties. On the left side of the concert we see Sylvie Vartan on stage. On the back, behind the curtain, we see the shadow of Johnny Hallyday watching her.
The disc is not signed by "Sylvie Vartan", but simply "Sylvie", which was rewarded in the era of yéyés, both of which both stars marked two stars only in their own name.

On the tour
This release will take place just over a month after October 19, Johnny's posthumous album My Country is Love, which has sold more than a million copies.
For several months, the legal battle surrounding the legacy of the singer opposes his two elders, David Hallyday and Lauri Smet, his latest wife Laeticia.
Sylvie Vartan is currently touring with a performance featuring twenty hits by Johnny Hallyday. She will sing on November 24 in Lyon on December 5 (the anniversary of Johnny's death) in Saint-Quentin in Aisne and December 12 in Brussels.
