Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing housed in a thick gatefold sleeve. Digitally remastered edition of this 1969 classic from French singer, songwriter and entertainer Serge Gainsbourg and his muse, British vocalist and actress Jane Birkin. Without a doubt, Gainsbourg is agent provocateur and Gallic soul brother #1. His sensual work is championed by all in the know and still resonates quite frankly in these sexually exaggerated times. The album Jane Birkin And Serge Gainsbourg (often referred to as Je t’aime moi non plus) now comes with a booklet with new liner notes, original artwork, and English/French lyrics.
Light In The Attic Records is thrilled to announce their reissue of 1969’s JANE BIRKIN/SERGE GAINSBOURG album, often referred to as Je T’Aime… Moi Non Plus. Recorded as a series of duets and solo performances with lover, actress, and model Birkin, the pair’s chemistry-enhanced collaboration was thrust upon the record buying public to much shock and horror, but indeed found global success. The disc quickly shot its cigarette brandishing author and fresh-faced vocalist into the international spotlight; and although lead-off single “Je T’aime” and its seductive purrs reached top slot in the UK charts, none other than the Pope branded the tune offensive and blasphemous. Ever the conversationalist, Gainsbourg wittily replied, “we couldn’t have gotten a better PR man!” Indeed Serge, indeed.
