Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
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! This cool collection should correct that fact, as it finally gives worldwide exposure to this ... CD

RCA/RPM (UK), 1967. New Copy
Great girl pop from the French scene of the 60s – sung by the ultra-hip Stella, a singer we'd rank right up there with the best material from France Gall or Francoise Hardy at the time! Stella may have even more wit than both, though – as the tunes have this sharp, tongue in cheek ... CD

Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold
Fantastic French femmes from the 60s – and a great illustration of the way that girl power really took over the sound of the Parisian scene at the time!

A really special collection of work – one that focuses on the production efforts of the legendary Jacques Canetti – easily one of the hippest talents on the French scene in the postwar years! Canetti did a tremendous job of bringing out the more literate, sophisticated side of French ... CD

Chansons D'Avant Le Deluge
Jacques Canetti/Because (France), 1967. New Copy
Beautiful early work from Brigitte Fontaine and Jacques Higelin – a rare album for the Jacques Canetti label, and done in the years before both artists recorded for Saravah! The style here is nicely jazzy – a bit similar to Fontaine's later Est session – with arrangements by ... CD

Doxy/Vogue (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy

RCA/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Some of the coolest, grooviest work from the French scene of the 60s – the complete recordings of the lovely Chantal Goya – a stunning presence both on record and on screen at the time! Goya's maybe best remembered for her role on Jean-Luc Godard's Masculin/Feminin – where she ... CD

El (UK), 1962/1963. New Copy
Two early gems from this fab French singer! First up is the self-titled Francoise Hardy album from 1962 – a seminal debut from the young Hardy, and a record that set the tone for a whole generation of French music to come! The album's a remarkable achievement – especially considering ... CD

IRM (with bonus CD)
Because (France), 2010. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A stunner from Charlotte Gainsbourg – in keeping with her style of crafting a diverse body of avant pop sounds by working with stellar collaborators – this time with producer/composer Beck, and it's her best to date!

Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy
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! The album is one long suite built around a spare, electric bass-driven theme – a slow funk riff that's ... CD

Because (France), 2006. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Beautiful work from Charlotte Gainsbourg – the kind of record that would have made her old man proud!

Doxy, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Groovy early work from Sylvie Vartan – some of the earliest sides we've ever heard from this fab French singer, and done at a time when she was clearly inspired by early rock from the US scene!
