Brigitte Fontaine Est

LP (Item 839675) Saravah (France), 1968 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

The Saravah Records debut from this amazing French singer – done with a wonderful sound that really links two generations of French music! At some level, the album's got a slightly more standard feel – bits of jazz, but inflected freshly – almost like the sublime Jeanne Moreau album on 60s Polydor. But at another level, there's already some of Fontaine's experimental spirit strongly at play – putting the songs together with a very creative, poetic approach. Pierre Barouh (of Francis Lai soundtrack & Saravah fame) handled the music, and the orchestrations have lots of cool little bits and weird twists and turns – and Brigitte's voice is strong and clear, more like other familiar female French singers than on her later work. Tracks include "L'Homme Objet", "Le Beau Cancer", "Il Pleut", "Je Suis Inadaptee", and "Comme Rimbaud". Totally worth having if you dig groovy French stuff!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent green vinyl pressing on Superior Viaduct.)

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.

A later album from Jane B, but one that's still pretty darn groovy, thanks to arrangements from Alan Hawkshaw!

One of our favorite albums by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – a perfect bridge between the simple pop of earlier records, and the group's expanding sound as the 70s approached!
