Brigitte Bardot Show

LP (Item 37410) AZ, 1968 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of the greatest Brigitte Bardot albums you could ever buy – some of the grooviest, sexiest work the famous French actress ever cut! The album's overflowing with excellent original material written by Bardot by Serge Gainsbourg and Francis Lai – two of our favorite French composers of the 60s, and both a very good choice to work with Brigitte! Bardot sings in a sexy, whispery style that's a bit like Jane Birkin, but somewhat different too – and the arrangements are by Michel Colombier, Paul Pio, and Christian Gaubert – three talents who definitely keep things groovy. There's a few instrumentals mixed in with the vocal tracks – but that's totally fine with us, because they're all pretty great – and there's plenty of moments with a nice groove and a bit of funk. Titles include "Harley Davidson", "Ay Que Viva La Sangria", "Gang Gang", "David B", "Mister Sun", "Paris", "On Demenage", and "Contact" – plus the excellent "Marseillaise Generique" instrumental – used to great effect in Austin Powers!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent 180 gram vinyl.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Jacques Brel

Brel
Barclay (France), 1977. Very Good Gatefold
This was Brel's last album before his death, and it's an oft-overlooked piece of work that's fantastically different from his better-known 60's oevre, but also every bit as great as that stuff. The tracks on here have an amazingly sombre quality, and are filled with deep swells of emotion that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brel at his best – delivered with the biting tone that made Brel one of the most brilliant social commentators of the 20th Century, yet with a warmth that offset his critical vision with a real love of life!

Boris Vian
Philips (France), 1955/1956. Near Mint-
Very strange stuff by one of France's greatest poets! Vian's recording here with wild off-kilter backing by the legendary Andre Popp and by the combo of Jimmy Walter – both of whom give Vian's lyrics a stranger sound than we would have expected! Titles include "Le Deserteur", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, 1964. Very Good-
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! The album's filled with jaunty grooves – leaping sort of numbers that almost have a "yeh yeh" French pop approach, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barclay (France), 1966. Near Mint-
A beautiful batch of classic tracks by Jacques Brel – one of our favorite-ever singer/songwriters! The record captures Brel at the peak of his power, working with Francois Rauber's orchestra, which provides him with some perfectly-placed arrangements that help focus the incredible vision of ...

Barclay (France), 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
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. The tracks are still quite strong, and if anything, Brel's writing has only gotten sharper by this point. Titles include "Le Gaz" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cluster

Cluster II
Brain (Germany), 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Heady work from Cluster – a record that really helped set the tone for a whole generation of German experimentation!

Abraxas
Columbia, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
In the past 30 years, this one's gone from being a fierce outpouring of the Bay Area underground, to a cliche of classic rock, to a brilliant example of west coast Latin rock/funk/fusion in action!
