Named one of the “1000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die” by music writer Tom Moon in his book of the same name, Serge Gainsbourg‘s 1971 classic,Histoire De Melody Nelson receives a  deluxe CD/LP Remaster this week marking it’s first official US release via Light In The Attic Records.
Influencing a wide range of artists from Air to Beck to Stereolab, it’s a sultry simmering mix of orchestral sounds and jazzy-bluesy-psychedelic guitar that serve as the perfect backdrop for Serge’s French sung spoken vocals, which almost seem a seductive whisper as the story of Melody Nelson unfolds.
