New Michel PolnareffDouble Best Of Michel Polnareff (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Universal (France), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP .... $24.99
A special vinyl-only collection of work from Michel Polnareff – one of our favorite French pop talents from the end of the 60s! Polnareff's got this quality that's unlike anyone else we can think of – very expressive, but without being overly emotive – sometimes crafting the lyrics with this warble, sometimes with a raspy whisper – and almost always set to these cool baroque arrangements that really push the whole thing over the top! Michel's not nearly as well-known on these shores as some of his contemporaries, but his music is equally wonderful – and this special set has a very strong focus on all his best years of the late 60s, with more from the early 70s – and a few key tracks from later years too. Titles include "Ame Caline", "Le Roi Des Fourmis", "Love Me Please Love Me", "L'Amour Avec Toi", "Ta Ta Ta Ta", "Ring A Ding", "Le Bal Des Laze", "Mes Regrets", "Ne Dans Un Ice Cream", "Tam Tam", "Radio", "Lettre A France", and "Holidays".

Jane BirkinLolita Go Home ... CD
1975. New Copy .... Around May 20, 2014
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 on the English-language versions of "What Is This Thing Called Love" and "Where Or When" – and the arrangements by J-P Sabar have a spare electric quality that work perfectly with Jane's flat voice. A real oddity, but the kind of oddity that kept Birkin a compelling artist throughout her career – and proof that style goes a lot farther than substance in the world of Euro pop! Tunes are almost all originals written by Serge Gainsbourg – and titles include "French Graffiti", "Just Me & You", "La Fille Aux Claquettes", and "Rien Pour Rien". CD

Michel PolnareffLe Bal Des Laze (180 gram pressing) ... LP
1968. New Copy (reissue).... Around May 1, 2014
Mindblowing work from a young Michel Polnareff – spacey pop from late 60s France, with a sound that's completely sublime! Polnareff's never been taken up as strongly as Serge Gainsbourg or Jane Birkin by English-speaking audiences, but we think his music is equally great – a baroquely beautiful pastiche of groovy rhythms, acoustic guitar lines, and lots of tripped-out touches – as you might expect from French pop of the time! Production often has Michel's vocals echo out a bit – a slightly spaced-out quality that rings out in really unique tones that highlight his songcraft beautifully. Titles include "Ta Ta Ta Ta", "Jour Apres Jour", "Mes Regrets", "Piplette", "Ame Caline", "Le Bal De Laz", "Oh Louis", and "Les Grands Sentiments Humains". LP, Vinyl record album
