Description

Sex has always sold, but presented with a landmark musical backdrop, the combination is rare. Quite often, attempts fall flat, 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.

"There's an ambition, a conceptual depth to Melody Nelson that's incredibly hard to pull off but which Gainsbourg does completely. It's very cool and its dynamic is genius...It's one of the greatest marriages of rock band and orchestra that I've ever heard." - Beck
