Editorial Reviews

UK two CD collection from the iconic French singer, songwriter, producer and actor. Serge Gainsbourg wrote and directed four controversial movies, he published a scurrilous novel, his records were often denounced as obscene and he was perpetually embroiled in scandal, whether for turning up drunk on a TV show and offering to F*#k fellow guest Whitney Houston, recording a Reggae version of 'Le Marseillaise', burning a 500 franc banknote on prime-time TV, or making a decidedly queasy video with his 13-year-old daughter Charlotte. Summarizing his approach to life and art, he said: "Without controversy it would all be very boring" and "For me, provocation is oxygen." This 66 track set is a comprehensive survey of the first five years of Gainsbourg's recording career; comprising each of the first four, remarkable, solo albums, singles, live performances, film soundtracks and covers including the EP that the eternal Juliette Greco devoted to Gainsbourg compositions. El.

Intoxicated Man is a comprehensive look at the first five years of Serge Gainsbourg’s recording career, covering his first four albums plus a host of singles, soundtrack work, live recordings, and covers of Gainsbourg material by other singers. Although best known for his later acts of public provocation and musical sleaze, these recordings are far less radical than anything else in Serge’s lengthy canon. While it may be better as a historical record of his formative years, it’s still a highly enjoyable romp through his roots of jazz, chanson, cha-cha, and orchestral pop. As the chronologically ordered set crosses into ’62-’63 recordings on the second disc, you begin to hear some of the touchstones of Gainsbourg’s later sound peaking through, especially on his fourth album (given the highly imaginative title of No. 4) from 1962. It ends with fourteen same-era Serge covers from artists like Juiliette Greco, Pia Colombo and Petula Clark which are nice enough, but I’d trade them in a second for more Gainsbourg originals.
