With a career that spans decades, it might be a bit hard to sum up the best of Jane Birkin in one collection – but this overstuffed 3CD set does a pretty fantastic job!

Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2022. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A really beautiful little record – one that bills itself as coming from from creole roots and French chanson – and which definitely delivers the goods as promised! The rhythms are often nice and lean – bubbling, percolating elements that maybe echo some older styles from the ... (Global Grooves, French) read more CD

EvaristeIl Ne Pense Qu'a Ca – 1967 to 1970 ... CD
Born Bad (France), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
Really mad music from the French scene at the end of the 60s – work that's even weirder and more wild than some of the big names of the time – as if someone locked up Pierre Henry, Serge Gainsbourg, and Areski in the studio – and told them to come up with something new and unique! ... read more CD

Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera ... CD
Philips (France), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A great little album from Serge – possibly his last truly genius record, and one with a very unusual twist! The album was recorded in Jamaica with production from Sly & Robbie – very much in the late 70s, big-business reggae mode – but done with Serge's usual flair for the ... read more CD

Philips, Mid 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Great compilation that is part of a 3 volume set of work by the fantastic French pop singer Serge Gainsbourg! This volume brings together tracks from Serge's 60's years, and none of the material is on the other full-length CD reissues we stock – as most of it is from older singles and e.p.s ... read more CD

Decca/Universal (France), 1960. Used ... $2.99
The second of two groundbreaking albums for the Paris jazz scene. Although Loussier's formula was often copied during the 60s, at the time of these recordings, his mix of jazz and classical styles was fairly revolutionary – and a perfect way to link the postwar European love of jazz with ...

The charms of Yves Montand come through strongly in the image on the cover – and they definitely come through strongly in the performance on the album – a well-recorded 1962 concert that has Montand's vocals backed with a bit of piano, guitar, and accordion – nicely intimate, but ... read more CD

Finders Keepers/Cache Cache (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
Beautiful work from X Ray Pop – a totally wonderful French group from the 80s, and one with the same mix of female vocals and spare electronics that would later surface more strongly with Stereolab!

Dark 80s electronics from X Ray Pop – a record that has all the freaky, fuzzy touches of some of the best work coming out of the North of England in the late 70s – but was recorded a few years later, and originally only issued as a limited edition cassette tape!

Universal (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A very cool look at a lost legacy in French music – disco and club grooves from the late 70s and early 80s, most of which never got any play at all on our side of the Atlantic! The tracks here mostly go way beyond the obvious choices of Cerrone and Kongas, and often have a playful approach ... (Funky Compilations, French) read more CD

Great grooves from the French scene of the 80s – a time when Parisian musicians were picking up a lot of the electro soul elements from the New York scene, but also mixing them with other currents of European and African dancefloor modes!

A totally fresh take on French sounds of the late 60s – served up here with a sound that's as revolutionary as the image on the cover!
