UK collection. It is impossible to put into words the effect Brigitte Bardot has had on western pop culture over the past 70 years. La Belle Et Les Blues is the first legitimate retrospective of her recording career specifically compiled for the English-speaking market.
Spanning the years 1962-1970, it is a glorious confection of smoky jazz, frenetic yé-yé and groovy late '60s pop, all stamped with Bardot's idiosyncratic vocal approach, as unique as that of her acting. Highlights abound throughout La Belle Et Les Blues, from effervescent early cuts like 'L'Appareil A Sous' and 'Moi Je Joue', via Bardot's trademark "tropezian" introspection on 'Mr Sun" and 'La Madrague', to the Serge Gainsbourg-helmed late '60s apotheosis of 'Harley-Davidson', 'Bonnie & Clyde' and Brigitte's raunchy original version of 'Je T'aime Moi Non Plus', tracks that have since become global club and turntable favorites. The carefully remastered, delightfully illustrated collection comes with extensive liner notes detailing Bardot's enduring appeal across the decades and, as a special bonus, features fresh musings from B. B. herself on her times as a recording artist - in a rare interview granted especially for this release.
