Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire De Melody Nelson (1971)


"Histoire de Melody Nelson" is a 1971 concept album by French songwriter "Serge Gainsbourg". Produced by Jean-Claude Desmarty, the album was released in March 1971 through Philips Records.
At just under twenty-eight minutes, the short running time and the stylistic consistency and similarity throughout the album gives it qualities more in line with an EP or an extended musical piece with a number of movements. The album mix of freewheeling guitar, funk style bass guitar, near spoken word vocal delivery, and lush, deep orchestrated string and choral arrangements by "Jean-Claude Vannier" who composed almost the entire music in collaboration with "Gainsbourg" for the album, have proven to be highly influential amongst later francophone and anglophone musical performers.
Fantastic release!, plagued by deep bass. An obscure, and at the same time sensual atmosphere that will keep you hooked.
The Gainsbourg's voice is quite hypnotic, and the album as a complete is an arrow pointing to what would be the trip hop genre many years later.
Highly recommended and a "must have"!!
