The album, also known simply as Jane Birkin – Serge Gainsbourg, was originally released in 1969 and features solo vocal performances from Gainsbourg and his then partner Birkin as well as two duets. The music was written by Gainsbourg with Michel Colombier, and arranged by Arthur Greenslade; the track ‘Jane B’ was based on Chopin’s Prelude No.4 in E Minor.
Seattle’s Light In The Attic has been responsible for some of the most timely and handsomely packaged reissues of recent years, We’ll let LITA tell you more about the album’s significance:
“Recorded as a series of duets and solo performances, with lover, actress, and model Birkin, the pair’s chemistry-enhanced collaboration was thrust about the record buying public to much shock and horror, but indeed found global success.
“The disc quickly shot its cigarette brandishing author and fresh-faced vocalist in to the international spotlight; and although the lead-off single ‘Je T’aime’ and it’s seductive purrs reached top slot in the UK charts, no one other than the Pope banded the tune offensive and blasphemous. Ever the conversationalist, Gainsbourg wittily replied, ‘We couldn’t have gotten a better PR man!’ Indeed Serge, indeed.”
