|Delizia is the sister of Salvatore Adamo, who wrote all the songs on this EP from about 1966. By this time Adamo was a major pop star singing primarily ballads in French. Their parents were Sicilian, and the family emigrated to Belgium in 1947.|
I’m not sure how much success Delizia had. She seems to have recorded occasionally into the 1970s.
“J’ai rendez-vous” is the garage track on this one, upbeat ye-ye with horns, Hammond and blasts of fuzz! I wouldn’t overlook the delicate “Laissons passer les annees,” though that is a whole other kind of music. My copy is Spanish, hence the translated song titles listed on the cover.
Ariane had about a dozen other releases besides this one, most accompanied by the band Les 10-20. Though Ariane was from Belgium, much of it fits into the standard French ye-ye style of femme-vox pop.
“Tu Voudrais Que J’Oublie” is a little different, a ballad backed with strong playing from the drummer and guitarists. Written by Jacques Nelissen and Nelly Byl, this was released in 1966 on the Palette label.
