Taken from the album of the same name, Laurent Voulzy released 'Le coeur grenadine' in 1979. The single was a hit in France, although I haven't been able to establish just how big a hit the song was. In 2010, Laurent established a range of girls' clothing of the same name.
Voulzy entered my record collection when he released the single 'Les nuits sans Kim Wilde', but the compilation album 'Carib Islander' featured many more great pop songs. This single wasn't included, but it has the same breezy charm.
My collection: 7" single no. 5620 Found: Chelsea Records, Antwerpen, August 10, 2014 Cost: 1 euro Tracks: 'Le coeur grenadine' / 'Grimaud'
