✨✧ Pierre BarouhLe Pollen (with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Saravah/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from Pierre Barouh – a rare Japanese recording done in the early 80s, with a sound that's quite different from his earlier work – but equally great! The album's never too poppy, or overdone – certainly quite far from conventional ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

The Saravah Records debut from this amazing French singer – done with a wonderful sound that really links two generations of French music!

One of the most obscure recordings by this amazing duo – singers Brigitte Fontaine and Areski, who you might know best from their work on the legendary Saravah Records at the start of the 70s!

Serge GainsbourgConfidentiel ... LP
Philips/Mercury (France), 1963. Sealed ... $34.99
Nothing too confidential here, given the openness that Serge Gainsbourg brings to his music – and a great early 60s session that has Serge working with spare jazz backing, courtesy of bassist Michel Gaudry and guitarist Elek Bacsik!

Serge GainsbourgSerge Gainsbourg Number 4 ... LP
Philips (France), 1962. Sealed ... $34.99
Serge's 4th album – and another wonderful gem from his early years!

Stunning sounds from the team of Serge Gainsbourg and Michel Colombier – and maybe the most perfect example of why Gainsbourg soundtracks can be so great!

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!

Le Kiosque D'Orphee/Wah Wah (Spain), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 30.98
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!

LMLR (France), 1971. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
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 ...

An incredibly groovy late 60s soundtrack from Michel Legrand!

Les Double SixLes Double Six ... LP
Columbia (France), 1962. Very Good ... $11.99
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!

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!
