Jane BirkinLolita Go Home ... CD
Fontana (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
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!

Jacques Canetti/Because (France), 1966. New Copy ... $10.99
The roots of Brigitte Fontaine – and a really wonderful record that we love every bit as her later work – but in a completely different way! The style here is more strikingly jazzy in the territory of early 60s Serge Gainsbourg or Jacques Brel – and the lyrics are mostly all by ... read more CD

Serge GainsbourgTenue De Soiree ... CD
Philips/Music Box (France), 1986. New Copy ... $11.99
An overlooked Serge Gainsbourg soundtrack from the 80s – surprisingly well-done, and at a level that both reflects Serge's earlier styles and a much deeper ear for film scoring!

Barclay/Universal (France), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
Sexy grooves from 70s France – exactly the kind of record that we'd never find coming out in the US! Philippe Nicaud has this whispering, talking sort of style – kind of a cross between Serge Gainsbourg and Rod McKuen, set to music that's much more in the spirit of the former – ... read more CD

RCA/RPM (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
Great girl pop from the French scene of the 60s – sung by the ultra-hip Stella, a singer we'd rank right up there with the best material from France Gall or Francoise Hardy at the time! Stella may have even more wit than both, though – as the tunes have this sharp, tongue in cheek ... read more CD
