Keren AnnYou're Gonna Get Love ... LP
Universal (France), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
Wonderful work from Keren Ann – a French singer we first fell in love with on her albums done with producer Benjamin Biolay – working here with a different talent at the helm, but a sound that's equally sublime!

Saravah (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $15.99
Genius early work from Pierre Barouh – the artist best known for his contribution to the film A Man & A Woman, but also the owner of the legendary Saravah Records label – one of the grooviest imprints around! The set is a real move forward from Barouh's earlier material, which was ... read more CD

Pierre BarouhDites 33 Vol 2 – Concert A L'Espace Pierre Cardin ... CD
Saravah (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little live set from one of our favorite French singers – recorded in 1983, with backing by a small Japanese combo, very much in the manner of work on his album Le Pollen. Given that the album is such a studio-oriented session, it's interesting to hear the style of the work performed ... read more CD

Benjamin BiolayPalermo Hollywood (deluxe edition) ... CD
Universal (France), 2016. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
One of the coolest artists working on the French music scene in recent years – and one of the few who can really take us back to the days of older giants like Serge Gainsbourg or Jean-Claude Vannier! Biolay's got a reputation that's every bit as strong as both of them – two decades of ... read more CD

Jane BirkinLolita Go Home ... LP
Fontana/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Rare live material from the great Jacques Brel – almost all of which has never been issued before, and stands as a much-needed addition to his catalog of classics in the 60s!

A great mix of the groovy and the romantic – and one of the best soundtracks ever from mad French arranger Michel Colombier!

Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99
Music for the last feature film of Jacques Tati – the mad mad Trafic, matched here by a wonderful soundtrack by Charles Dumont!

A fantastic album by this enigmatic French singer – one of her first truly experimental albums!
