Brigitte FontaineBrigitte Fontaine Est ... LP
Saravah/Superior Viaduct (France), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
The Saravah Records debut from this amazing French singer – done with a wonderful sound that really links two generations of French music! At some level, the album's got a slightly more standard feel – bits of jazz, but inflected freshly – almost like the sublime Jeanne Moreau album on 60s Polydor. But at another level, there's already some of Fontaine's experimental spirit strongly at play – putting the songs together with a very creative, poetic approach. Pierre Barouh (of Francis Lai soundtrack & Saravah fame) handled the music, and the orchestrations have lots of cool little bits and weird twists and turns – and Brigitte's voice is strong and clear, more like other familiar female French singers than on her later work. Tracks include "L'Homme Objet", "Le Beau Cancer", "Il Pleut", "Je Suis Inadaptee", and "Comme Rimbaud". Totally worth having if you dig groovy French stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Serge GainsbourgL' Homme A Tete De Chou (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 18.99
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 Hawk's previous sound library work, and which are filled with loads of cool spare moogy and electronic bits filtering in and out of the mix! Some tracks bubble with the same brooding brilliance and funky touches that you'd find on the Melody Nelson album – and others have a uniquely spacey quality that's unlike any of his other work! Tracks include "Transit A Marilou", "Aeroplanes", "Variations Sur Marilou", "Premiers Symptomes", and "Lunatic Asylum". A great record – and one of the first of Serge's that we'd recommend!
