AntoineElucubrations – Antoine On 45 1965 to 1966 ... CD
Vogue/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderfully groovy work from Antoine – one of the hipper French singers of the mid 60s, and an artist who mixed headier sounds with some of the upbeat French pop modes of the time! The rhythms and instrumentation are often in the best jaunty mode we love from Parisian record of the period ... read more CD

Jane BirkinDi Doo Dah ... CD
Fontana/Universal (France), 1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet sweet work from Jane Birkin – an early solo set that steps strongly off of her classic duets with Serge Gainsbourg! In a way, this album's as much a record by Serge as it is by Jane – since Serge wrote almost all the tracks, and since the arrangements are handled by the legendary ... read more CD

Jane BirkinLolita Go Home ... CD
Fontana (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin take Jane's ever-growing trash rock aesthetic into the Euro club world of the 70s – and the result is an insane batch of tracks that are among Birkin's craziest work of the decade! She sings with an incredibly deadpan style – as you'll hear especially ... read more CD

Jacques BrelLe Formidable Jacques Brel (aka Jacques Brel 67) ... LP
Barclay/Vanguard, 1967. Very Good ... $5.99
A great set by Jacques Brel – filled with lesser-known compositions of later years, all arranged to perfection by Francois Rauber! The sound is tremendous – deeper, fuller, and more visionary than even Brel's classic early work – delivered with a voice that simply became the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jacques BrelQuand On N'A Que L'Amour ... CD
Barclay (France), 1960s/1996. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
Nice 2CD set that serves as a perfect introduction to the work of this legendary French singer/songwriter – and which includes a whopping 37 tracks in a very handsome package!

Guy CabayLi Tins Les-Otes Et On Po D'Mi (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
Really cool work from Guy Cabay – a singer who's a bit hard to describe accurately in words, but who definitely ranks right up there with some of the hippest French talents of the 70s! Cabay's got a breathy style of singing that's kind of post-Serge Gainsbourg, and a bit in the Saravah ... read more CD

Coralie ClementBye Bye Beaute ... CD
Capitol/Nettwerk, 2005. Used ... $6.99
A second outing from French singer Coralie Clement – produced by the great Benjamin Biolay, and done with a sound that's much more guitar-heavy than her first! The style here is still very couched in references to older French pop – sung with a vocal approach that would make Jane ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Coralie ClementSalle Des Pas Perdus ... CD
Capitol, 2001. Used ... $9.99
Lovely French pop – with a stripped-down retro groove that's really delightful! Coralie's got a breathy vocal style that reminds us of a young Jane Birkin – and the backing on the set is in a small combo mode, with guitar, organ, bass, drums, and sax – grooving in a mode that's ... read more CD

Great work by the team of Brigitte Fontaine and Areski Belcam – two of the most enigmatic talents you'll ever hear on record!

Serge GainsbourgL' Homme A Tete De Chou ... CD
Philips (France), 1976. Used ... $6.99
One of Serge Gainsbourg's best albums ever – a set that we love every bit as much as his Melody Nelson classic, or his killer records with Jane Birkin! The set was recorded in the mid 70s, and it features amazing orchestrations from Alan Hawkshaw – backings that are even better than ... read more CD

Serge GainsbourgL'Etonnant Serge Gainsbourg ... CD
Philips/Mercury (France), 1961. Used ... $5.99
Very early work from Serge Gainsbourg – but still every bit as wonderful as ever!

CBS (France), Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $18.99
A very weird bit of trippy folk rock from France – cool in its own way, but especially famous for the track "Sexologie", a great little instrumental groover, with a mix of mod and sex that's kept it a favorite with groove hounds for years! Other tracks include "Que Je ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Some of the coolest, grooviest work from the French scene of the 60s – the complete recordings of the lovely Chantal Goya – a stunning presence both on record and on screen at the time! Goya's maybe best remembered for her role on Jean-Luc Godard's Masculin/Feminin – where she ... read more CD

RPM (UK), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $13.99
Hard-rocking work from the earliest years of Johnny Hallyday – material pulled from early French singles that still show Johnny as the true European descendent of the sound of Johnny Burnette and Eddie Cochran!

Play Time (France), Early 70s. Used ... $14.99
Although a lot of Michel Legrand's soundtrack work has been reissued over the years, we haven't always been able to track down his vocal stuff, which is just about as groovy as his film scoring! He's got a warm raspy voice, and although his pipes won't win him any awards at the Opera, he sings ... read more CD
