Un premier amour - Isabelle Aubret

Isabelle Aubret was born as Thérèse Coquerelle on July 27, 1938 in Lille, France. Before starting a career in music, she won the French national gymnastics championship in 1952. Ten years later, she represented France during the Eurovision Song Contest, singing 'Un premier amour'. With sixteen countries participating, she was the one who won the competition with 26 points. The runner-up only had 13 points, so it was a convincing win.

When I decided I wanted to have all the winning songs of Eurovision as a single, the early years were of course the hardest to find. I'm still searching for 'Refrain' (1956) for instance....

My collection: 7" single no. 3771
Found: eBay.fr, received June 17, 2009
Cost: 3 euro
Tracks: 'Un premier amour', 'La-bas' / 'Petit bonhomme', 'Ces deux la'
