Arabesque by Narada at WA Tunes. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. British-born Birkin, with her deep bangs and waif-like, androgynous persona, was an iconic 1960s sex kitten. Her exploits ranged from the three-way scene in in Antonioni¹s film Blow Up to performing one-half of her late ex-husband Serge Gainsbourg's notorious (in retrospect, also quite witty!) erotic duet, ''Je T'Aime, Moi Non Plus.''

Product Description & Reviews
British-born Birkin, with her deep bangs and waif-like, androgynous persona, was an iconic 1960s sex kitten. Her exploits ranged from the three-way scene in in Antonioni¹s film Blow Up to performing one-half of her late ex-husband Serge Gainsbourg's notorious (in retrospect, also quite witty!) erotic duet, "Je T'Aime, Moi Non Plus." These days, although her trademark breathy vocal style remains as subtly elusive as ever, she has finally moved on to a mature and womanly sensibility. This live album features an all-Gainsbourg program, but his romantic, world-weary satires are now wreathed in sultry Middle Eastern instrumentation, which suits them remarkably well. The songwriter died relatively young, worn out by cigarettes and hard living. Birkin's interpretations, while based on inside knowledge of the man and his music, are filtered through a shifting kaleidoscope of private images. Her sensuous, sophisticated renditions are part of Gainsbourg's legacy but more importantly, they make scrumptious listening. --Christina Roden

Debut album from French-Canadian chanteuse Beatrice Martin (AKA Coeur de Pirate). Although this album was recorded when she was just south of 20 years old, the music contained on Coeur de Pirate's debut far belies her years. Martin, who has played the piano from the age of three, started composing her own songs in 2007. Members of Bonjour Brumaire noticed her and asked her to join their group as singer and keyboardist. Once she had established her own unique musical vision, Béatrice left the

Despite tragedy in her personal life, Dalida was a unique star. Among her recordings are French versions of pop hits in the early 60's.

VARIOS INTERPRETES FRENCH CAFE Although far from definitive (no Edith Piaf in sight!), this enchanting compilation delivers a perfect aural snapshot of what spending a late summer afternoon in a French cafe actually feels like.
