Gainsbourg, Serge: Historie de Melody Nelson LP
Double LP French import version! Sex has always sold, but presented with a landmark musical backdrop, the combination is rare as finding the elusive "G Spot." Quite often, attempts fall flaccid, missing the titillating mark by a mile. But French icon and national treasure Serge Gainsbourg is no stranger to sexual proclivities, and with his 1971 classic Histoire De Melody Nelson he shared an erotic tale as seductive today as the day it was released.
With help from actress, amour, and inspiration Jane Birkin, arranger/conductor and co-conspirator Jean-Claude Vannier (L'Enfant Assassins Des Mouches), not to mention a tight hand picked crew of top shelf UK session musicians, Histoire De Melody Nelson is often cited as Gainsbourg's master work, an essential album for the discerning music lover.
