Georges Brassens Sings Of The Birds & The Bees

LP (Item 734742) Philips, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

A great American collection of some of the best songs from this sublime French songwriter – packaged with a booklet that offers up some of the few English language translations of his music we've ever seen! Titles include "The Gorilla", "The Umbrella", "I'm A Naughty Boy", "The Cuckhold", "I Have A Date With You", and more. One of the best French artists ever – in a holy trilogy with Jacques Brel and Serge Gainsbourg!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes booklet.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

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

One of the most obscure 70s albums on the legendary Saravah label – recorded by David McNeil, who's playing a saxophone on the front – but who also sings and plays a host of other instruments too! The set's got a very genre-crossing vibe, in the best Saravah mode – and also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Universal (France), 2011. Near Mint- 2LP
A new generation of the Gainsbourg family line comes into the musical fold – with results that are surprisingly nice!

Brunswick, 1970. Very Good+
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups!
