Brigitte BardotBest Of Brigitte Bardot ... CD
Philips/Universal (France), 1960s. Used ... $7.99
A great collection of groovy French pop! Although BB's best known in this end of the world for her acting, she actually cut quite a few great records in France during the 60s – and this set includes 20 of them! Some of the work is recorded with Serge Gainsbourg, or with his assistance ... read more CD

Saravah (Japan), 1971. Used ... $12.99
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

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1956/1962. New Copy ... $8.99 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 ... $13.99
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

Jane BirkinBaby Alone In Babylone (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $29.99
A later album from Jane B, but one that's still pretty darn groovy, thanks to arrangements from Alan Hawkshaw! The overall sound is somewhat in keeping with the date – keyboards and rhythms that sound more 80s than 70s – but the tunes themselves have all the breathy, sensual qualities ... read more CD

Warner, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 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 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

ClioClio ... CD
Ugo & Play/Think (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $22.99
Dreamy French pop from Clio – a contemporary singer, but one who hearkens back to our favorite chanteuses of years past – especially the hip wave of Parisian talents in the late 60s! The approach here is gentle and laidback – a bit in the pace of Jane Birkin, but maybe set to ... read more CD

Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Brigitte Fontaine & AreskiLe Bonheur ... CD
Saravah (France), 1975. Used ... $8.99
Perhaps one of the most hauntingly beautiful albums by the team of Brigitte Fontaine and Areski – although we'll admit that we love all of them almost equally well! If you haven't heard their records, we can't even begin to describe them – but let us just say that they feature fragile ... read more CD

✨✧ Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera (expanded 2CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1979. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
A great little album from Serge – possibly his last truly genius record, and one with a very unusual twist! The album was recorded in Jamaica with production from Sly & Robbie – very much in the late 70s, big-business reggae mode – but done with Serge's usual flair for the ... read more CD

Philips/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $31.99
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 ... read more CD
