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! The album's not as upbeat or jazzy as some of Legrand's later soundtrack work, but it's got a ... (Jazz, French) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic! This is the French pressing of the Michel Legrand score to Jaques Demy's incredible 1965 film The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg.

Michel LegrandMichel Legrand Plays For Dancers (aka Archi-Cordes) ... LP
Philips, 1964. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of the first moments of grooviness from Michel Legrand in the 60s – a set that takes his older orchestral style and fits it to a really mod set of rhythms!

Popera CosmicLes Esclaves ... LP
Columbia/Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
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, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The long hair and casual image on the cover really says a lot about the sound of the record – as vocalist Catherine Ribeiro works here with some very open, experimental grooves from Alpes – all at a level that has that freewheeling, open-minded sound of the French scene at the time!

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! The lyrics are all in French, but it's clear that Gilles is a hell of a songwriter – able to come up with songs that are smartly structured, as well as ...

Totally amazing music – and nothing at all like the "our enfants" tag on the cover might make you expect!
