The first ever vinyl reissue of Serge Gainsbourg's cult score for the 1968 French film Le Pacha. These tracks were composed by Serge Gainsbourg at the height of his '60s cool when he was briefly going out with Brigitte Bardot and the couple was on the verge of recording the infamous first version of "Je T'aime... Moi Non Plus" (1969). All the tracks here are arranged by famed arranger Michel Colombier, who had been responsible for some of Gainsbourg's best songs ("Bonnie & Clyde" and "Harley Davidson") and had also arranged Pierre Henry's classic Psyche-Rock around the same time -- note the similarity between Psyche-Rock and "Un Noel 67" from this set. Many of these nuggets blend '60s pop and psychedelia -- pure undiluted Gainsbourg with his classic psyche-pop sound of the late '60s. The original soundtrack features his classic "Requiem Pour Un Con" together with a previously unreleased instrumental mix, along with two bonus tracks from William Klein's 1968 film Mister Freedom. Digitally remastered from the original tapes, this is the first time the full soundtrack is released on vinyl in its entirety. Comes in a deluxe gatefold sleeve featuring artwork by the famous French Alternative Movie Poster designer Maxime Pecourt. Includes liner notes with the full lineup and an interview of bass player Francis Darizcuren.
