Angelilo & HamelComplicite ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A jazz record, but one with so much going on it's impossible to pin down – strands of influences from Latin, Brazilian, and other modes – mixed with occasional vocal contributions too!

Jane BirkinDi Doo Dah ... LP
Fontana/Light In The Attic, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 30.99
Sweet sweet work from Jane Birkin – an early solo set that steps strongly off of her classic duets with Serge Gainsbourg! In a way, this album's as much a record by Serge as it is by Jane – since Serge wrote almost all the tracks, and since the arrangements are handled by the legendary ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jacques BrelLe Plat Pays 1 (Les Bourgeois) ... LP
Barclay (France), 1962. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
Brel at his best – delivered with the biting tone that made Brel one of the most brilliant social commentators of the 20th Century, yet with a warmth that offset his critical vision with a real love of life!

Play Time (France), 1969. New Copy ... $21.99
One of the grooviest albums ever by this baroque French arranger! Michel Colombier has cut some pretty great stuff in his time – but this album's probably the greatest, and it swings with a bouncy late 60s French pop sound that recalls some of the hippest work of Serge Gainsbourg, Michel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Two tremendous soundtracks from the mighty Francois De Roubaix – easily one of our favorite film composers of all time!

Fontana, 1969. Very Good+ ... $44.99
This is the US issue of the 1969 album that Serge and Jane Birkin cut together, and every track is a groovy French classic, of the sort that made Serge a legend!

Early gems from Serge Gainsbourg – all recorded with backings from Alain Gouraguer, in ways that show Serge was already changing the sound of French pop – even from the start!

A wonderfully weird French album from the 70s – and like some of the other underground greats of the scene at the time, a record that feels very much out of step with the rest of the world!

Les Petroleuses has a nice variety of sounds – some of the slinky, sexy, Euro-styled numbers you'd expect from Lai in the early 70s, and from a film starring Brigitte Bardot – mixed with other tracks that seem to foreground a version of the old west that's a bit playful – using ...

Universal (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An incredibly groovy late 60s soundtrack from Michel Legrand!

Les Double SixLes Double Six ... LP
Columbia (France), 1962. Very Good ... $24.99
Great early stuff by this swingin' French vocal group! These guys swung as hard as American groups, like Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – but they stuck to hipper, jazzier material, and had a driving sound that never let up! The group is led by singer Mimi Perrin, who also handed the ... (Vocalists, French) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A rare bit of Canadian psych from the start of the 70s – served up by a group with a sound that's all their own! Some numbers here are straightforward hard rockers, but others have a more complex approach – not proggy, almost performative – like some of the trippier French ...

Beautifully groovy work from mid 60s France – all by a singer who's every bit as great as France Gall, Francoise Hardy, or other French greats of the time – but not nearly as well known!

An obscure French period comedy from 1971 – with a surprisingly groovy score from Michel Polnareff!

Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Pretty groovy stuff – even if it is a big shift for Polnareff! Polnareff began his career as a cool French popster – singing in a style that mixed baroque 60s arrangements with the intimacy of folk.
