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

Saravah/Sony (Japan), Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy ... $24.99
A beautiful tribute to Pierre Barouh – the French singer who probably did more for other artists than he ever did for himself – thanks to the early royalty monies he used to start the Saravah Records label! Yet amidst important Saravah releases by artists like Brigitte Fontaine or ... read more CD

Gilbert BecaudLive In Paris 1956 to 1962 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1956/1962. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Excellent early work from Gilbert Becaud – one of the most important French songwriters and singers of the late 50s and 60s – captured here in a live setting that's a nice change from the studio sounds of some of his bigger hits! The first half of the set is especially interesting, as ... read more CD

Benjamin BiolayVolver ... CD
Universal (France), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
Incredible work from Benjamin Biolay – maybe the only contemporary French singer that we'd dare compare to the legacy of Serge Gainsbourg, and one who's really at the top of his game here! We've always loved Biolay's music, but there's a special sort of crackle to this set that reminds us of ... read more CD

Warner, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
A wonderful setting for the great Jane Birkin – working here with a full symphony orchestra, in very fresh interpretations of the classic songs of her onetime partner, Serge Gainsbourg! The orchestrations are wonderful – never sleepy, and always nicely light – so that Jane's ... read more CD

✨✧ Jane BirkinDi Doo Dah (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Fontana/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $31.99
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

✨✧ Jane BirkinEx Fan Des Sixties (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Fontana/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $31.99
Very groovy solo work by the lovely Jane B – working here with a set of songs by Serge Gainsbourg, and sublime arrangements by Brit Easy/KPM maestro Alan Hawkshaw. The record's got a super-sexy sound, with a lot of whispered Frenchy tracks in a style that's similar to Serge's best work ... read more CD

✨✧ Jane BirkinLolita Go Home (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Fontana/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $31.99
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 CD

Blue Stars Of FranceLullaby Of Birdland ... CD
Mercury/Nippon (Japan), 1954. Used ... $6.99
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 ...

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $9.99 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! The recordings are great – done for radio, and re-presented here with fidelity that's every bit as rich as Brel' ... read more CD

A lovely meeting between vocalist Charito and Michel Legrand – a set that not only features a host of Legrand's wonderful compositions, but also some guest vocals and piano from Michel as well!
