Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire de Melody Nelson lp (LITA)


Probably the BEST Serge record... expensive but a NICE package. Gatefold cover, killer pictures, interview with Serge...

Light In The Attic says:
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 & national treasure Serge Gainsbourg is no stranger to sexual proclivities, and with his 1971 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, Nelson is often cited as Gainsbourgs master work, an essential album for the discerning music lover.
