French icon and national treasure Serge Gainsbourg is no stranger to sexual proclivities, and with his 1971 Histoire De Melody Nelson, he shared an erotic tale as seductive today as it was 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), and 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.
Light in the Attic’s reissue of Histoire De Melody Nelson finally gives this ever radical record the respect and attention it so rightfully deserves. This lavishly packaged LP reissue includes true-to-the-original artwork, printed lyrics, and extensive liner notes 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. The maestro himself even chimes in with a period Q&A interview from France’s Rock & Folk magazine.
With its massive inspiration reaching from the quintessential rap of De La Soul and The Beatnuts to like-minded and eclectic singer-songwriters, Nelson continues to entrance. It's truly our pleasure to keep sharing Gainsbourg’s provocative message to thrill seekers the world over!
