✨✧ Pierre BarouhDites 33 Vol 2 – Concert A L'Espace Pierre Cardin ... CD
Saravah (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $24.99
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

Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 19 CDs ... $79.99
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!

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1987. New Copy ... $9.99 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!

Francois De RoubaixL'Homme Orchestre (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Rambling (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
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 ...

Antoine Duhamel/Anna KarinaPierrot Le Fou/Weekend ... CD
Philips/Rambling (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $16.99
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

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!

Saravah (France), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic album by this enigmatic French singer – one of her first truly experimental albums! The record differs from some of her other albums quite a bit – and has a very strange mix of styles that go from straight ahead (only a track or two), to wildly experimental – very ... read more CD

Saravah (France), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
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!

Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 13 CDs ... $44.99
A huge collection of work from Claude Francois – a French singer who might have been one of the classier male artists on their scene in the 60s – as you can probably guess from his stylish look on some of these album covers! Claude always worked at a level that was a cut above – ... read more CD

Fantastic stuff – and a record that may well be the greatest ever from the mighty Serge Gainsbourg – high praise indeed, considering the greatness of Gainsbourg's other music! The album is one long suite built around a spare, electric bass-driven theme – a slow funk riff that's ... read more CD
