Jacques Brel

LP (Item 44603) Reprise, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

An early American release of the work of one of France's greatest singers – featuring tracks recorded with the orchestra of Francois Rauber, who was Brel's accompanist on some of his best recordings ever. The package includes many classic numbers like "Jef", "Madeline", "Les Biches", "Mathilde", "Au Suivant", "Titine", "Chanson Sans Paroles", and "Les Bonbons" – and the back cover features some great English translations!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label mono promo! Cover has a promo sticker, light wear, and a bit of aging. Vinyl has a short click on "Bruxelles".)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

If You Go Away
Philips, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Beautiful US album that features some of Brel's most famous tracks, served up in a lovingly-packaged edition that includes a gatefold cover, and a handsome inner booklet with notes and translations of the songs. The whole thing's a great way to get into Brel's work – and was the record that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tenue De Soiree
Apache (France), 1986. Near Mint-
An overlooked Serge Gainsbourg soundtrack from the 80s – surprisingly well-done, and at a level that both reflects Serge's earlier styles and a much deeper ear for film scoring! There's a main theme that's delivered with this beautifully echoey piano line – sometimes playful, sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jane Birkin – Serge Gainsbourg
Fontana, 1969. Very Good+
A landmark collaboration between Serge Gainsbourg and actress Jane Birkin – his paramour at the time, and a much younger woman! This album is perhaps the archetypal Gainsbourg erotic effort – and it's filled with wonderful duets set to breathy, bouncy orchestrations – tunes that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1969. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...

Stone Soul
Columbia, 1969. Very Good
A killer album from Mongo Santamaria's classic 60s run for Columbia – and a record that also features some wonderful alto work from a young Sonny Fortune! Sonny's the key soloist on the record – bringing some sharp jazz elements to an album that's equal part Latin and 60s soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
