Nue Au Soleil – The Lost 70's Album

LP (Item 927970) Universal (France), 1970s — Condition: Sealed

Funky Brigitte Bardot – the kind we like the best! This wonderful set brings together a bunch of rare tracks that Bardot cut in the early 70s – a scattering of singles, soundtrack songs, and unreleased tracks, pulled together to make a fantastic Lost 70s Album! The sound here takes off nicely from Brigitte's funky work with Serge Gainsbourg in the late 60s – with some slight baroque touches, lots of cool instrumentation, and an angular approach to French pop that makes for lots of skittish little grooves and sly rhythmic progressions. The mode works perfectly with Brigitte's sexy vocals, and the album's easily some of the best work we've ever heard from her – offering up a new delight at every turn! Titles include "La Fille De Paille", "John Et Michael", "Je Voudrais Perdre La Memoire", "Quand Mon Amour Danse", "Mon Leopard Et Moi", "Chacun Son Homme", "Soyons Deux", "C'est Une Bossa Nova", "Vous Ma Lady", and "Tu Es Venu Mon Amour".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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 record as revolutionary as the French year in which it was recorded – an amazing batch of late 60s grooves from Parisian pop madame France Gall!

Gil Scott-Heron

Reflections
Arista, 1981. Very Good-
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its ... LP, Vinyl record album
