✨✧ Pierre BacheletHistoire D'O ... CD
CAM/Music Box (France), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A classic sexy soundtrack from the 70s – maybe the greatest thing ever to come from the pen of composer Pierre Bachelet, and a lot more rich than the images on the screen from Just Jaeckin's cinematic version of The Story Of O! Bachelet works in a mix of electric and acoustic styles – definitely inspired by some of the Italian sex scores of the time, but more spacious overall – so that the notes and rhythms really have time to entice and unfold before really hitting the right sort of sensual sound! The vibe is very spacey, with a dreamy rainy afternoon sound – with nice touches of electronics, and a good mellow feel – on titles that include "O'Apres", "O'She's A Lady", "O'Et L'Amour A Trois", "O'Et Sir Stephen", and "O'Et La Photo De Jacqueline". Great CD version – 28 tracks in all! (Soundtracks, French) CD

✨✧ Brigitte BardotBrigitte Bardot Sings (aka Brigitte 1963) (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classic 60s work from Brigitte Bardot – the roots of French female pop, with a set of tracks that mix together bits of rock, pop, and lively jazz-based arrangements – all in a unique blend that's totally great, and every bit as wonderful as you might expect! We might go so far as to argue that Brigitte Bardot on record is almost sexier than on the screen – and thanks to backing from the likes of Claude Bolling, Francois Rauber, and Pedro Serrano – the grooves are as great as the lovely lady's vocals! The set includes a great track written by Serge Gainsbourg, and titles include "L'Appareil A Sous", "Invitango", "Les Amis De La Musique", "Pas Davantage", "La Madrague", "El Cuchipe", "Everybody Loves My Baby", and "C'Est Rigolo". CD features bonus tracks "La Belle Et Le Blues", "Lecon De Guitare", and "Tiens C'Est Toi". CD
(SHM-CD pressing! Comes in a cool flip-back album cover – like a 60s French pressing!)

✨✧ ClothildeFrench Swinging Mademoiselle 1967 ... LP
Born Bad (France), 1967. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Groovy girl pop from late 60s France – a treasure trove of under-discovered numbers from the lovely Clothilde! Clothilde's from the same vintage as France Gall and Francoise Hardy – but she's got a style that's a bit sweeter vocally, yet still set to the mod-styled backings that really make 60s French pop so great! Tunes are plenty groovy, with a few trippy touches from time to time – and most numbers have a bouncy groove that really keeps things interesting – especially when odd instrumentation creeps into the mix – like bits of musical saw, oddball percussion, and bells and whistles! Titles include "Fallait Pas Ecraser Lau Queue Du Chat", "La Chanson Bete Et Mechante", "Le Boa", " "Saperlipopette", "102-103", "La Ballade Du Bossu", "A Ora Sos'e", and "Qualcosa Che Non Va".

✨✧ Chantal GoyaComment Le Revoir (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Oldays (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the coolest, grooviest work from the French scene of the 60s – recordings by the lovely Chantal Goya – a stunning presence both on record and on screen at the time! Goya's maybe best remembered for her role on Jean-Luc Godard's Masculin/Feminin – where she almost plays a parody of herself – but these rare singles for RCA from the same time really show her as a hell of a singer, with an incredibly charming sound that really comes through past the barrier of language! As with some of our favorite French female work of the time, the arrangements here are filled with instrumental touches that really support the vocals – tight rhythms, fuzzy guitar and Hammond, and some light orchestrations that always have a nice sort of focus – and none of the cloying charts you might get for a girl singer in the US. The set features 20 tracks in all – and titles include "Laisse Moi", "Tu M'As Trop Menti", "C'Est Bien Bernard", "Comment Le Revoir", "Oh Raconte Moi", "La Flamme Et Le Feu", "Mon Ange Gardien", "Ma Premiere Tendresse", "La Pluie Du Ciel", and "Pense Pas Trop". CD
