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!

Naive (France), 2013. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Beautiful work from Benjamin Biolay – easily one of our favorite French artists of the 21st Century – even though we've been following his work since the previous one!

Repackaging of Brel's 1967 LP – featuring some of his lesser known work from the late 60s, set to arrangements by longtime accompanist Francois Rauber.

Return To Analog (Canada), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
Vintage work from Marius Cultier – a singer with roots in the Antilles, but who found a very welcome audience in the French Canadian scene – where he recorded this great little groover at the start of the 70s!

Quite a nice record, and one that has actress Catherine Deneuve singing songs written by Serge Gainsbourg – with backing by Alan Hawkshaw, in a style that's very similar to the work he did with Jane Birkin!

One of Serge Gainsbourg's best albums ever – a set that we love every bit as much as his Melody Nelson classic, or his killer records with Jane Birkin!

Serge GainsbourgTenue De Soiree ... LP
Apache (France), 1986. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An overlooked Serge Gainsbourg soundtrack from the 80s – surprisingly well-done, and at a level that both reflects Serge's earlier styles and a much deeper ear for film scoring!

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!

MiquelaI A De Sars ... LP
Ventadorn/Finders Keepers (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An album from the mid 70s, but one that's got an almost timeless sort of vibe – given that it was recorded in the ancient language of Occitan, and set to instrumentation with lots of lightly folksy touches, and a fair bit of jazz-styled phrasing too! The mix almost gives the set the feel of ... (Rock, French) read more LP, Vinyl record album

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!
