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

✨✧ Michel LegrandBonjour Paris (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/El (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Dreamy sounds from the legendary Michel Legrand – working here in a mode that's maybe a bit more lush and romantic than some of his later soundtrack work – yet at a level that's still head and shoulders above most of his 50s instrumental contemporaries! The set's got a melancholy vibe ... (Jazz, French) read more CD

RPM (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Rare rockers from the earliest days of the French scene – work that's often much more tied to American styles than French material from a few years later – but in a really great way that hangs onto all the best raw and rockabilly modes of the late 50s!

El (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $6.99 13.99

BYG, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Great work by the team of Brigitte Fontaine and Areski Belcam – two of the most enigmatic talents you'll ever hear on record!

Freaky fuzzy French pop from Liminanas – a group we've loved for years, and one who just seem to get better and better with each new release!

✨✧ CalciumCalcium (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
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! The approach here is both tight and loose at the same time – shortish songs with a strong current of flower power in the ... (Rock, French) read more LP, Vinyl record album
