It should be noted also that most of the songs here can be found elsewhere - "Je T'aime...", "L'Anamour", "Elisa", "Manon" etc....however, the version of "L'Anamour" featured here is a curiosity since it's slightly different to the usual version found on compilations such as "Comic Strip".
Overall I would say that this is a bad place to start if you are new to Serge. This is really a Jane Birkin album and song for song it's one of the weaker efforts in Serge's fascinating catalogue. For completists only.
I was glad I bought it. It is good to have that oldie but very goodie in my collection.
...Neither one of the tracks was a long boring song for me...
This album is HIGHLY recommended to all the people out there who admire very sweet vocals and the sixties inspiration towards music...especially Pop and Rock...
It's a mixture between them and the result is like one of a kind.
As in France nowadays,some people down there consider Serge Gainsbourg as the composer who made the revolutionary steps in the music field..He is also one of the most important Rock icons and musicians down there (since the Beatles were the biggest icon in England and Elvis in U.S.A)
...You even don't have to understand French to enjoy this album..
Most of the tracks are very famous and appeared in many different movies as background music or title songs (such as track # 1)...
So don't be surprised if you thought that this track rings a bell or something ...
For the fans of (Nico,Kahimi Karie,Yoko Ono,Bridget Bardot,Francoise Hardy and Pizzicato 5),this is a must buy.

Great to play in my apartment when I'm drinking some wine with some friends. It makes for some intellectually hip background music.Published on September 25, 2006 by Anne-Marie
