Keren AnnYou're Gonna Get Love (deluxe edition) ... CD
Universal (France), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
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! Keren's also making a big step towards a global market here, too – ... read more CD

Universal (France), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $15.99
Rare work from French songwriting giant Charles Aznavour – the talent who penned so many great songs for Edith Piaf, then went on to his own tremendous career as a singer! This set brings together lots of obscure tracks from Charles – including some recorded in the 60s and 70s, ... read more CD

Brigitte Bardot & OthersBardotmania ... CD
El (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99
More of a celebration of Brigitte Bardot in general than a straight collection of her own recordings – a really cool 2CD package that features music from famous Bardot films, some tracks sung by Bardot herself, and a few other numbers by different singers too! The orchestrations are lush at ... read more CD

Pierre BarouhCa Va, Ca Vient ... LP
Saravah (France), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pierre BarouhLe Pollen ... CD
Saravah (France), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from Pierre Barouh – a rare Japanese recording done in the early 80s, with a sound that's quite different from his earlier work – but equally great! The album's never too poppy, or overdone – certainly quite far from conventional ... read more CD

Jane BirkinDi Doo Dah (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fontana/Light In The Attic, 1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet sweet work from Jane Birkin – an early solo set that steps strongly off of her classic duets with Serge Gainsbourg! In a way, this album's as much a record by Serge as it is by Jane – since Serge wrote almost all the tracks, and since the arrangements are handled by the legendary ... read more CD

Blue Stars Of FranceLullaby Of Birdland & Other Famous Hits ... CD
Mercury/Five Four (UK), 1954. New Copy ... $3.99
A key link in the early career of Blossom Dearie – and a fab album of jazzy vocal tracks throughout! Before Blossom recorded some of her 50s sides for Verve in the US, she was living in France and working with The Blue Stars – a cool male/female jazz vocal group that went onto become ...

Blue Stars/Henri SalvadorJazz In Paris – Pardon My English/Henri Salvador Plays The Blues ... CD
Universal (France), 1956. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Excellent vocal jazz from postwar Paris! The Blue Stars were a legendary combo that were led by Blossom Dearie, and which featured a host of great vocal talents that would later go onto form groups like Les Double Six or The Swingle Singers, including Mimi Perrin and Christine Legrand, as well as ...

Georges BrassensLe Temps Ne Fait Rien (19CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 19 CDs ... $99.99
An amazing run of music from one of the hippest French artists ever – the legendary George Brassens, a singer/songwriter who was equally important to the sound of postwar French music as Jacques Brel or Serge Gainsbourg! In fact, Brassens may have been one of the first to touch on some of ... read more CD

Dee Dee BridgewaterJ'Ai Deux Amours ... CD
Verve/DBB Recrods, 2005. Used ... $7.99
A beautiful love letter from Dee Dee Bridgewater to her adopted home of Paris – sung in French, and with a feel that's quite different than much of her recent work! The style here wonderfully mixes together bits of jazz and more traditional chanson – in a style that recalls some of the ... (Vocalists, French) read more CD

Nicole CroisilleJazzille ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
An overlooked 80s album from Nicole Croisille – a French singer you may know for her work on soundtracks with Pierre Barouh and Francis Lai, but who vocalizes here entirely in English – in the jazz-based setting promised by the title! The record has Croisille offering up her versions ... read more CD

Francois De RoubaixL'Homme Orchestre (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Rambling (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever written by one of the maddest composers we've ever heard! Although Francois DeRoubaix never gets as much fame as some of the other big French composers, his work from the late 60s and early 70s is completely insane – as you'll hear on this groovy gem from ...

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Francois De Roubaix/Brigitte BardotBoulevard Du Rhum (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
A groovy French soundtrack from the great Francois De Roubaix – composed for a film set in the 20s, starring Brigitte Bardot and Lino Ventura – but done in a range of compelling styles, with lots of the odd instrumental twists and turns we love in Francois' music for film! There's only ... (Soundtracks, French) read more CD

Double SixSwingin Singin! ... LP
Philips, 1962. Very Good ... $11.99
Great early stuff by this swingin' French vocal group! These guys swung as hard as American groups, like Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – but they stuck to hipper, jazzier material, and had a driving sound that never let up! The group is led by singer Mimi Perrin, who also handed the ... (Vocalists, French) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Antoine Duhamel/Anna KarinaPierrot Le Fou/Weekend ... CD
Philips/Rambling (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the most playful soundtracks ever penned for a film by Jean-Luc Godard – a really lovely batch of music scored by Antoine Duhamel, and featuring a bit of vocals from Anna Karina! The main instrumental score is almost tongue-in-cheek at times – kind of a Godardian parody of more ... (Soundtracks, French) read more CD

Charles Dumont/Jacques TatiTrafic (with bonus track) ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
Music for the last feature film of Jacques Tati – the mad mad Trafic, matched here by a wonderful soundtrack by Charles Dumont! After the dark modernism of Playtime, Tati let loose a bit more for Trafic – and the score matches the film's sometimes silly approach with some very groovy ... (Soundtracks, French) read more CD
