Yes, of course, she sings in French. She was a Canadian : a bilingual country ! French Song was a little hit in the USA, but a monster hit in Quebec. My family used to have that 45 in the mid sixties and the title on the label was not French Song, but Quand le soleil dit bonjour aux montagnes.
Quand le soleil (aka The French song) was the first song I heard of her. Liked those French words and her pure voice..
Only later on I learned how popular she already was in Canada and recorded country music with her husband.
I will add an interesting note, about her cover of Sukiyaki. The French part of this song is the same as the French cover did in Quebec by singer Claude Valade, in 1963.
Hi Jean.
I think there are 3 tracks missing. On the frontcover are 12 names and 5 bonus tracks are added, makes 17.
I found the back cover and the missing songs are:
Gone, My man and La vie en rose.
2 and 3 are even mentioned on the frontcover.

It was on purpose JanV, I don't wanna post complete albums.
