Brigitte BardotBrigitte Bardot Show (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
AZ/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... About March 21, 2018 (delayed)
One of the greatest Brigitte Bardot albums you could ever buy – some of the grooviest, sexiest work the famous French actress ever cut! The album's overflowing with excellent original material written by Bardot by Serge Gainsbourg and Francis Lai – two of our favorite French composers of the 60s, and both a very good choice to work with Brigitte! Bardot sings in a sexy, whispery style that's a bit like Jane Birkin, but somewhat different too – and the arrangements are by Michel Colombier, Paul Pio, and Christian Gaubert – three talents who definitely keep things groovy. There's a few instrumentals mixed in with the vocal tracks – but that's totally fine with us, because they're all pretty great – and there's plenty of moments with a nice groove and a bit of funk. Titles include "Harley Davidson", "Ay Que Viva La Sangria", "Gang Gang", "David B", "Mister Sun", "Paris", "On Demenage", and "Contact" – plus the excellent "Marseillaise Generique" instrumental – used to great effect in Austin Powers!

✨✧ Bruce HaackFarad Bruce Haack – The Electric Voice ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
Amazing electric grooves from synth innovator Bruce Haack – whose pioneering use of analog synths and vocoder vocals in the service of great, if far out songcraft was pretty much unrivaled in the 70s and into the early 80s – the period in which this excellent compilation on Stones Throw highlights! Haack's earlier successes were children's music in the 60s, and one of the coolest aspects of his 70s recordings was how that somewhat bright-eyed and innocent sing-song-y approached moved into more surrealist, weirder realms on albums like Electric Lucifer, that album's lesser known, still quite brilliant sequel, and albums like Haackula and Bite. Choice cuts from those albums as well as rare singles are rounded up for Stones Throw's impeccably curated overview. The electric voice and synth errata brings an otherworldly vibe to catchy songs – and Haack's use of the vocoder was followed by so many others who would become household names, from Kraftwerk to Pink Floyd. Amazing stuff! 16 tracks in all: "Electric To Me Turn", "Incantation", "Rain Of Earth", "Ancient Mariner", "Man Kind", "Rita", "Lie Back", "Snow Job"m "The King", "Party Machine" and more. CD

✨✧ VenturesUnderground Fire ... LP
Liberty, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Ventures pull a bit of fire from the late 60s underground – using influences from garage and psych to really trip out the usual sound of their guitars! Things are still relatively straight ahead, but there's more fuzz than before – and the choice of cool tunes really keeps things in territory that's pretty darn hip! Some of the best cuts are originals by the group – surprisingly jamming, and surprisingly creative – done in collaboration with arrangements from Mike Melvoin that really make all the instruments sparkle wonderfully! Drums can be hard, keyboards can be groovy, and the overall vibe of the record is a real surprise if you only know The Ventures' hits. Titles include "Embers In E Minor", "Higher Than Thou", "Up Up & Down", "Sea Of Grass", "Down On Me", and "Country Funk & The Canned Head". (Rock, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
