Georges Delerue/Brigitte Bardot/Jeanne MoreauViva Maria ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
We've got to admit that we've never seen this film – which stars Brigitte Bardot and Jeanne Moreau, and which was directed by Louis Malle – but the lovely look of the ladies on the cover was enough to make us pick up the record! The themes are a mixture of French and Mexican styled ones – and Bardot & Moreau sing together on the tunes "Paris Paris Paris", "Maria Maria", and "Les Petites Femmes". Other tracks include "Cirque", "Theme Victoire Colline", "Dame Blanche", and "Musique De Cachot Jeanne Flores". (Soundtracks, French) LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono white label promo. Cover has some tape on the spine and WGN marker and a bit of pen on back. Label has a small sticker.)

France GallFrance Gall (1964) ... LP
Philips (France), 1964. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Early work by one of the grooviest singers in the French pop scene of the 60s – the lovely France Gall, working here with some very swinging arrangements from Alain Gouraguer! The grooves are wonderful throughout – sometimes jazzy, sometimes more in a "yeh yeh" pop vein – but always upbeat, lively, and youthful! Gall's voice has a lightly dreamy quality that skips along nicely over the top of the rhythms – not really a little girl mode, given her sense of command on the lyrics – but as cutely flirtatious enough to match the sexy spirit of the record! Titles include "Jazz A Gogo", "Soyons Sages", "Pense A Moi", "La Cloche", "Ca Va Je T'Aime", "Ne Dis Pas Aux Copains", "Mes Premieres Vraies Vacances", and "N'Ecoute Pas Les Idoles". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent German pressing on Twitchin' Beat.)

Juliette GrecoLive In Paris 1956 to 1961 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Rare live work from the lovely Juliette Greco – recorded right during the height of her career, when her hip style of chanson was really transforming the sound of French music from the left bank scene! The tracks here are all very well-recorded, and feature Juliette working with a small combo that includes piano, guitar, and musette – a nicely lean vibe that really offers up a different spirit of the songs than her studio recordings – as does the relaxed, completely charming stage presence of Greco. Titles include "T'En As", "Jolie Mome", "Le Guinche", "Coin De Rue", "La Chanson De Margaret", "Je Prends Les Choses Du Bon Cote", "La Cuisine", and "On N'Oublie Rien". CD

Michel LegrandLes Parapluies De Cherbourg (2LP version) ... LP
Philips/Universal (France), 1965. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $28.99
Fantastic! This is the French pressing of the Michel Legrand score to Jaques Demy's incredible 1965 film The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg. Every word of dialogue in the film is sung, and Legrand came up with an amazing array of themes to carry the emotion of the film. Embedded in here are lines that later became worldwide hits – like "I Will Wait For You" and "Watch What Happens" – but in this version, the songs are just themes in the huge pastiche of dialogue and narrative, and they lurk behind the score in a beautiful way. This is one of our favorite all-time soundtracks, and this French version has a very lovely cover with Catherine Deneuve standing amidst some umbrellas! Great 2LP version – with more material than the original LP release! (Soundtracks, French) LP, Vinyl record album
