Just a quick note to let everyone know that Serge Gainsbourg's 1971 masterpiece Histoire De Melody Nelson has finally been granted a United States release courtesy of Light in the Attic Records. This mesmerizing collaboration with arranger Jean-Claude Vannier and muse Jane Birkin is one of my top ten albums of all time and all the superlatives that have been thrown at it (monumental, mind-blowing etc) don't even come close to doing it justice. It's jaw-dropping and I am thrilled it is finally getting a proper release in the states. Click here for information on this important reissue.
