Serge GainsbourgL'Etonnant Serge Gainsbourg ... CD
Philips/Mercury (France), 1961. Used ... $7.99
Very early work from Serge Gainsbourg – but still every bit as wonderful as ever! The tracks have Serge singing with small jazz combo arrangements by Alain Gouraguer – tight and groovy, maybe not as funky as later work, but still with an odd twist that shows that he was apart from the crowd, even early on in his career! The arrangements mix together flute, piano, percussion, and a bit of guitar – working through rhythms that range from lightly Carribbean, slightly Latin, and sadly jazzy. 10 tracks in all – including "Les Femmes C'Est Du Chinois", "Personne", "Viva Villa", "Chanson De Maglia", "Le Sonnet D'Arvers", "Le Rock De Nerval", and "En Relisant Ta Lettre".

New Brigitte BardotBrigitte Bardot Show ... CD
Universal/AZ (France), 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest Brigitte Bardot albums you could ever buy – some of the grooviest, sexiest work the famous French actress ever cut! The album's overflowing with excellent original material written by Bardot by Serge Gainsbourg and Francis Lai – two of our favorite French composers of the 60s, and both a very good choice to work with Brigitte! Bardot sings in a sexy, whispery style that's a bit like Jane Birkin, but somewhat different too – and the arrangements are by Michel Colombier, Paul Pio, and Christian Gaubert – three talents who definitely keep things groovy. There's a few instrumentals mixed in with the vocal tracks – but that's totally fine with us, because they're all pretty great – and there's plenty of moments with a nice groove and a bit of funk. Titles include "Harley Davidson", "Ay Que Viva La Sangria", "Gang Gang", "David B", "Mister Sun", "Paris", "On Demenage", and "Contact" – plus the excellent "Marseillaise Generique" instrumental – used to great effect in Austin Powers!
