L' Homme A Tete De Chou
Philips (France), 1976. Used
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! The set was recorded in the mid 70s, and it features amazing orchestrations from Alan Hawkshaw – backings that are even better than ... CD

Brigitte Fontaine (1972)
Superior Viaduct, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastic album by this enigmatic French singer – one of her first truly experimental albums! The record differs from some of her other albums quite a bit – and has a very strange mix of styles that go from straight ahead (only a track or two), to wildly experimental – very ...

Universal (France), 2001. Used
The groovy French pop of Serge Gainsbourg gets the remix treatment! After years of being sampled by hip hoppers, referenced by post-rockers, and claimed as an influence by a wide range of singers and instrumentalists – Serge Gainsbourg's finally breaking into the mainstream of modern music ... CD

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

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! A few tunes are sung in French and have a kind of dramatic French pop ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Succes Et Confidences
Jacques Canetti/Because (France), Mid 60s. New Copy
A wealth of early work from the great Jeanne Moreau – her first album as a singer, plus music from films, and other 60s tracks too! The core album is 12 Chansons – a classic album of vocal tracks from one of France's greatest actresses – the lovely Jeanne Moreau, who also ... CD

5:55 (with bonus 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! The album's got a sense of depth and texture that ranks right up there with the senior Gainsbourg's classics – a breathy approach to the music that's filled with subtle sensuality and ...

Jacques Canetti/Because (France), 1966. New Copy
The roots of Brigitte Fontaine – and a really wonderful record that we love every bit as her later work – but in a completely different way! The style here is more strikingly jazzy in the territory of early 60s Serge Gainsbourg or Jacques Brel – and the lyrics are mostly all by ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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! A number of the tracks here are French remakes of American songs – like "Twist & ... LP, Vinyl record album
