Serge GainsbourgL'Essential Des Albums Studio – 14 Albums Originaux 1958 to 1987 (12 CD set) ... CD
Philips/Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 12CD ... $46.99
Amazing music – at an equally amazing price! The set features every studio album ever recorded by Serge Gainsbourg – monumental sounds that completely transformed the world of French music in the 60s and 70s, and have gone on to have a global impact well into the 21st Century! The sounds here are amazing right from the start – a mix of jazz, Latin, and other hip modes – all set to playfully sinister lyrics by Serge – which get even better as the 60s move on, and Gainsbourg dips into fuzz, funk, and other amazing elements to push out some far frontiers in his music! The 70s sees some great electronics, classic collaborations with Sly & Robbie, and gives way to some surprisingly great 80s material towards the end of Serge's too-short career. Box features 14 albums on 12 CDs – with records that include Du Chant A La Une, No 2, L'Etonnant Serge Gainsbourg, No 4, Gainsbourg Percussions, Initials BB, Jane Birkin/Serge Gainsbourg, Histoire De Melody Nelson, Vu De L'Exterieur, L'Homme A Tete De Chou, Aux Armes Et Caetera, Mauvaises Nouvelles Des Etoiles, Love On The Beat, and You're Under Arrest.

Anne PigalleEverything Could Be So Perfect (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
ZTT/Salvo (UK), 1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
One of the more unusual albums on ZTT from the 80s, but one of the most compelling too – the only full length set we've ever seen from singer Anne Pigalle, a vocalist who moves easily between French and English lyrics, in a lush summation of the best continental pop of the time! The sound is a lot less electronic than usual for ZTT – orchestrations arranged by Richard Niles, topped with great work on piano and organ from Nick Plytas – all to set up Anne's breathy vocals with an early 80s new romantic take on French chanson. There's a nicely world-weary feel to the whole thing, one that makes for a bit more depth of feeling than usual for ZTT – and titles include "The 1000 Colours Waltz", "He Stranger", "Looking For Love", "Why Does It Have To Be This Way", "A Crack In The Ocean", and "Via Vagabond". 2CD version features 15 more bonus tracks – including "He Stranger (redirected by Trevor Horn)", "Johnny", "Intermission (mix songuer)", "Souvenir D'Un Paris (mix aguicheur)", "Like We Do", "Looking For Love (spring 84)", "Crack In The Ocean (spring 84)", "1000 Colours Waltz (spring 84)", "He Stranger (plight return)", and "Stranger (than fiction)".
