Monster Melodies (France), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $33.99
A never-issued psych album from the French scene at the end of the 60s – recorded by a group of players with ties to both the jazz and prog worlds of the time!

Parlophone, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
One of the coolest albums ever from Francoise Hardy – a set that has her working with Brazilian arranger Tuca, who brings a very different vibe to her music – a mode that wraps together acoustic guitar, post-bossa arrangements, and some dark-tinged vocals from Francoise – all in a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Warner/Be With (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Sweet AOR grooves, served up here in French – which makes for a nice change from some of the more familiar American work of the time! Yet even past the language, the album's got a very special highlight in the keyboard work of Marc Moulin – still very funky here, as in his initial 70s ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fontana/Universal (Germany), 1965. New Copy ... $29.99
Lovely English-language work from Nana Mouskouri – a set recorded with some really great arrangements from Bobby Scott, who seems to help Nana pack even more feeling than usual in her work!

Disques AZ/Universal (France), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99
Killer work from Michel Polnareff – one of our favorite French pop singers ever – and one of the few who could mix in a trippy style with some of the more upbeat modes of a few years before!

Disc AZ/Epic (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
Mindblowing work from a young Michel Polnareff – spacey pop from late 60s France, with a sound that's completely sublime! Polnareff's never been taken up as strongly as Serge Gainsbourg or Jane Birkin by English-speaking audiences, but we think his music is equally great – a baroquely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible record from the French scene of the 70s – both sides very different, but equally wonderful!

Fantastic French funk and psych – a very cool collection that goes way past the obvious hits of the 60s – to bring together some of the trippier tracks of the time!
