Format: Audio CD
'Aux Armes Et Caetera' is usually cited as Gainsbourg's most celebrated foray into reggae but this superb album - not even given a UK or US release when it was recorded in 1981 - is arguably superior. Sly & Robbie are at their majesterial best and the I-Threes - Judy Mowatt, Rita Marley and Marcia Griffith - provide sumptuous backing vocals throughout (and on the final track, lead vocals). It's hard to fathom quite how seriously Gainsbourg himself was taking it all when he recorded this masterpiece in the Bahamas. Most of the time he sounds so laid-back as to be virtually horizontal and track 9 is a typical slice of puerile Serge mischief (three minutes of farting). But that driving rhythm section and the beautiful female harmonies turn every other track into a gem. I don't speak fluent French so I can't testify to the lyrical profundity or lack of it, but the album's title translates as 'Bad News From The Stars'. The cover portrait on the original issue (white) sleeve is by celebrated UK fashion/portrait photographer David Bailey.

This is brilliant dinner party backing music, guaranteed to relax even the most stressed-out hyperactive. A magical album to pick up if you can find a copy.

Format: Audio CD
...and this album it's far most than that!!

For some of us who had the privilege to see him alive on stage, in the 70's and 80's - this disc was his reggae era and influenced by Bob Marley - no one can denie his personality: audacious, provocative, eccentric and not taking himself too seriously ("I'm like Mickey Mouse, big ears [indeed, indeed...] and long..."queue"!!")

One day he was on TV, burning a FRF 500 notebank (a huge sum at the time, obviously, and illegal...) alive and in direct; other day saying, in prime time show, he wanna' f**k Witney Houston, or as in the previous album to this one("Aux Armes et Caetera")composing it's own interpretation of the National French Anthem "La Marseillaise" where the sentence "Aux armes, Citoyens.." was changed to "...etc..." Of course, some live concerts were stopped, when the song began, by Air Force Military Commandos (the mood was electrical!!) and other ones simply annuled!!

But, as the sicilian proverb says "La Vendetta se mangia fredda..." later he buyed the original De Lilles's Anthem manuscript for FRF 135,000.00, where it's written and by author's "manu propria": "Aux armes Citoyens...etc"!!

He will say, "La Marseillaise is a revolution "musique" (in french, meaning song...),Reggae music is a Revolution music too, I don't understand all the fuss about..."

So all his life was sulfurous...Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot (hear "Je T'Aime" or "Bonnie and Clyde" songs), he knew where beauty was!!

A song recorded with is daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg, today a singer too, but at the time 8/9 or 10 years old named..."Lemon Incest", added some more powder to fire: it was videotaped with both of them on...bed!!

Edición que incluye la versión original en un cd, y otro mas con remezclas del álbum original.
Propuesta muy interesante y sentida, un ritmo cadente que atrapa irremediablemente, aunque creo que le falta el sentimiento jamaiquino que hace del reggae un ritmo irresistible.
Muy decorosa propuesta, muy bien ejecutada que muestra el gran oficio del compositor.
