To Brandon Burke: What's the Brigitte Fontaine/Art Ensemble recording like? I posted a query on this in Discography, but it received no responses. You may be the only one here who's heard this.

I really love this record. To be honest, I put it down as 'October Listening' but it hasn't strayed very far from my turntble in several years. If you're at all familiar with Fontaine then you can expect her vocals over some very mellow groove-based AEoC. No drum kit but some varying hand drums. Engineered with a ton of reverb so it's got a hazy, almost dub-like psychedelic opium den vibe throughout. The title track alone is worth the money (and that's saying something since there is no US pressing). My reissue LP was $19. If you're totally unfamiliar with Brigitte Fontaine then I can tell you that she has a ridiculously sexy voice and sings in French. Her vocal style was the prototype for the confident, detatched eroticism of Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab). Hope that makes sense. I recommend it, man. It's a great record.

Brandon and Chuck - Thanks, guys! Now that I have a sense of what it's like, I'll try and get hold of a copy.

I suggest you try either Dusty Groove, Other Music, Waterloo Records, or Amoeba Records. Seems like between the four of them someboy's gotta have it. In fact, there's a good chance it's on the 'employee picks' wall at each place.

O.K., I know I'm a sick man, I just purchased, and am listening to:

Led Zeppelin: The Complete Studio Recordings

This despite the fact I have all the Classic Record 200gm lp's, except for Coda. But, I do need this for my car and office, right??? <_<
