Roses Rouge Sang

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 15

A great late album from French composer, arranger, lyricist, singer and all around creative musical force Jean Claude Vannier – with Vannier singing moody, vintage orch pop numbers in a mode that does both JCV and his old collaborator Serge Gainsbourg proudly! The set has a very lively feel to it, which is quite natural, given that the album came about following the group's rehearsals for the Histoire De Melody Nelson performance at London's Barbican in 2006. It features a brilliant group of players who worked with Vannier and Serge Gainsbourg on that uber-iconic album as well as other boundary-busting projects and soundtracks – including Cannabis, La Horse, Slogan and Vannier's own legendary leftfield classic L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches. Vannier's voice is charismatic as can be, and the vintage pulp orchestrations are as fresh as ever. Includes "Londres-Paris-Sofia", "Les Yeux Valise", "Au Desespoir Des Singes", "Les Coquelicots", "La Vie En Live", "Une Partie De Scrabble", "Roses Rouge Sang" and "Un Petit Quelque Chose".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Fanon, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Sublime French pop from the turn of the 70s – a really trippy collection that shows the great expansion in sound since the "yeh yeh" scene of a few years before! Not all the tracks here hail from 1969 – but they definitely fit the title's reference to a sly, sexy tune by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Some of the heaviest work to come from the African scene of the 70s – the initial offering of the Ngozi Family – a group who clearly take strong inspiration from the Cream years of the UK scene, but who also come across with a grittier, punkier vibe overall – thanks to lean, ...

An incredible early 90s EP by The Cramps – putting their macabre psychobilly stamp some killer covers – tracks originally done by Jack Nitzsche, Lightnin' Slim, Walter Brown & The Alleycats and Sherriff & The Ravels!

Big Beat (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible album – one of the greatest rock albums of the 60s, and a record we'd place right up there on the shelf next to Pet Sounds or Forever Changes!
