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!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Great work by the team of Brigitte Fontaine and Areski Belcam – two of the most enigmatic talents you'll ever hear on record! The album's the only one they ever recorded that wasn't issued by the Saravah label – and it's a fantastic blend of otherworldly vocals with spare ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fontana/Light In The Attic, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark collaboration between Serge Gainsbourg and actress Jane Birkin – his paramour at the time, and a much younger woman! The pair come together beautifully here in a set of sensuous duets – tunes that have an open, honest approach to the relations between the sexes – yet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brigitte Fontaine Est
Saravah/Superior Viaduct (France), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Not a tribute to the Electric Light Orchestra, but a wonderfully spiritual set of jazz – one that takes key inspiration from the elohim entities of spiritual scriptures – as well as some of the best jazz mass projects from artists like Max Roach, Donald Byrd, or Mary Lou Williams!

Cool Down
Clocktower, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
As you may already know, Lindval Thompson loves to smoke marijuana, but he's quite the singer too! With a smooth mellow voice, he delivers the roots message here, over easy, loping rhythms from the Aggrovators featuring Robbie Shakespeare, Santa Davis, Chinna Smith, Ossie Hibbert, Augustus Pablo ...

Explosive Dub
Clocktower, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
If you're looking for a definition of dub, this album may well be it – and it's clear proof why Tubby could proudly wear the crown of a King! The set's beautifully bassy and muddy all the way through – a heady brew of bottom-level sounds – all layered wonderfully with lots and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clocktower, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Truly one of the most essential reggae albums of all time, and without a doubt one of our top dub albums. While we may be known for our hyperbolic comments on LPs here at Dusty, this album is very much deserving of the praise, and if you don't own it, you need to. Basically a collection of dubs ...
