With his 1971 "Histoire De Melody Nelson" Serge Gainsbourg shared an erotic tale as seductive today as the day it was released. With help from actress, amour, and inspiration Jane Birkin, arranger/conductor and co-conspirator Jean-Claude Vannier ("L’Enfant Assassins Des Mouches), not to mention a tight hand picked crew of top shelf UK session musicians, Nelson is often cited as Gainsbourg’s master work, an essential album for the discerning music lover.
For the first time ever, this lavishly packaged and true to the original artwork 180 gram LP reissue contains extensive English liner notes and content explaining the times and tales behind the making of this passionate platter. Dispelling countless myths, hearsay, and rumors surrounding Nelson, New York-based writer Andy Beta contributes a stylish essay for your edification while Finders Keepers’ honcho and Twisted Nerve founder Any Votel shares his deep knowledge of Gainsbourg and the Gallic/UK music scenes with great insight – never before have these stories been told. The maestro himself even chimes in with a period Q&A interview from France’s Rock N Folk Magazine, and printed lyrics (both with English translations).
