Lill LindforsKom I Min Varld ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $9.99
A totally groovy little record from Swedish singer Lill Lindfors – an artist who's got an equally great ear for sounds from France, Brazil, and even the American west coast – all of which she serves up here in her own unique style! Lill's music has always gotten attention from folks who are interested in the global spread of bossa during the 60s – but this wonderful album has even more to offer than just that, as Lindfors comes across with a depth that reminds us of Elis Regina on some of her more sophistcated late 60s sides, or maybe even some of the hipper French singers as things were really getting interesting once they moved past pop. Backings are by Marcus Osterdahls, who has a great way of moving between zippy sounds and more subtle ones – and Lills sings songs by Edu Lobo, Sonny Rollins, Jacques Brel, and The Beatles – plus some cool originals too. Titles include "Teresa", "Var Frihet", "Satt Lite Fart", "Den Forsta Sommaren", "Om Du Gar Din Vag", and "Har Ar Jag". CD

✨✧ Brigitte FontaineBrigitte Fontaine Est ... CD
Saravah/Superior Viaduct (France), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Saravah Records debut from this amazing French singer – done with a wonderful sound that really links two generations of French music! At some level, the album's got a slightly more standard feel – bits of jazz, but inflected freshly – almost like the sublime Jeanne Moreau album on 60s Polydor. But at another level, there's already some of Fontaine's experimental spirit strongly at play – putting the songs together with a very creative, poetic approach. Pierre Barouh (of Francis Lai soundtrack & Saravah fame) handled the music, and the orchestrations have lots of cool little bits and weird twists and turns – and Brigitte's voice is strong and clear, more like other familiar female French singers than on her later work. Tracks include "L'Homme Objet", "Le Beau Cancer", "Il Pleut", "Je Suis Inadaptee", and "Comme Rimbaud". Totally worth having if you dig groovy French stuff! (French, Vocalists) CD
