Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire De Melody Nelson
Over just 27 minutes Serge Gainsbourg created the finest album of his career on 1971's Melody Nelson. Using dramatic orchestral arrangements, deep bass-led grooves and his trademark slow spoken delivery he made something very special here. Available on the ever reliable Light In The Attic, this beautifully done reissue is perhaps the definitive version of this timeless classic. Must listen tracks -- Melody, Ballade De Melody Nelson and Cargo Culte.
