Aux Armes Et Caetera
Vinyl LP Record
Originally released in 1979, this is the first (and best) of SERGE GAINSBOURG's two forays into reggae. Recorded in Jamaica with some of reggae's biggest names including players/producers SLY & ROBBIE. Probably Gainsbourg's last truly classic album, Aux Armes Et Caetera is full of dubbed out tracks and Serge's signature speak-sing drawl. His reworking of the French national anthem in the title track earned him death threats from members of the French right-wing, adding to his controversial image. Sultry, stony, dubby, jams from one of the '70s most important artists.
