VA - Vamps Et Vampire: The Songs Of Serge Gainsbourg

Much of Gainsbourg's best work was done in the service of the many muses he courted and collaborated with over the years, and Vamps Et Vampire spans the decades to offer up twenty-five of his sassiest, savviest productions, as sung by both better-known chanteuses (Birkin, Hardy, Gall, Greco, Bardot, etc.) as well as such lesser-known ladies as Vickey Autier, Zizi Jeanmaire, and Micheles Torr et Arnauld.

"This latest edition in our Songwriter series spotlights Serge Gainsbourg, one of the greatest icons of Gallic pop culture. 'The image of beauty and the beast, the Rive Gauche provocateur arm-in-arm with the ravishing icon, was a recurring feature of Gainsbourg’s career,' once observed Malcolm McLaren, a man not unfamiliar with the power of provocation. Spanning the entire Gainsbourg canon, our collection ranges from existential chanson to yé-yé and beyond – performed, appropriately, by a stellar all-female cast." - Ace Records
