Philips, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99

Philips (France), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic stuff – and a record that may well be the greatest ever from the mighty Serge Gainsbourg – high praise indeed, considering the greatness of Gainsbourg's other music!

A record as revolutionary as the French year in which it was recorded – an amazing batch of late 60s grooves from Parisian pop madame France Gall!

No baby pop here, as France Gall is all-woman throughout – one of the best of the French female pop singers of the mid 60s, working here with an upbeat, groovy sound throughout!

A cool 70s recording from Francoise Hardy – one that shows a deeper, more mature side of her talents!

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!

A sparkling postwar musical fantasy of Paris – one made up of a host of famous themes from French pop music of the 20th century, all set to lush string arrangements by a young Michel Legrand!

Classic vocal material by Michel Legrand, an artist who's better known to the world for his groovy writing and arranging for soundtracks and instrumental pop albums.

Popera CosmicLes Esclaves ... LP
Columbia/Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
The group name's got "opera" in the middle, but the set is way more than that – and way more than the usual "rock opera" modes in which the rare album is frequently cited! Instead, the whole thing's a freewheeling bit of French psych – very much tied to the trippier ... (Rock, French) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Anthology, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
One of those key records that shows the really unique side of the French scene at the start of the 70s – an underground world that was a bit hippie, certainly trippy, and very open to other ideas too – wrapped up in a sound that was both cosmic and intellectual at the same time! ...

Sweet AOR grooves from Gilles Rivard – a Canadian singer from the start of the 80s, and one who works here with a very jazzy vibe!

Saravah/Souffle Continu (France), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99
An amazing album from the legendary Saravah label – one of the imprint's lesser-known gems from the 70s, but a set that's got the same compelling mix of modes you'd find in their albums from Barney Wilen, Brigitte Fontaine, Pierre Barouh, or the Art Ensemble Of Chicago!

Some of the earliest work ever recorded by Sylvie Vartan – the French female singer of the 60s who had a distinct rock and roll sound!
