Je'Taime... Moi, Non Plus
Light In The Attic Records is thrilled to announce their reissue of 1969's JANE BIRKIN/SERGE GAINSBOURG album, often referred to as Je T'Aime... Moi Non Plus. Recorded as a series of duets and solo performances with lover, actress, and model Birkin, the pair's chemistry-enhanced collaboration was thrust upon 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 into the international spotlight; and although lead-off single "Je T'aime" and its seductive purrs reached top slot in the UK charts, none other than the Pope branded the tune offensive and blasphemous. Ever the conversationalist, Gainsbourg wittily replied, "we couldn't have gotten a better PR man!" Indeed Serge, indeed. Adding the period bonus track "Chanson de Slogan," the eleven-song Jane Birkin/Serge Gainsbourg is finally seeing the light of day on CD for the first time in North America (as well as the premiere LP reissue on 180-gram vinyl). The release is replete with a 32-page full color booklet, original art, English/French lyrics, audio re-mastering by DAVE COOLEY, and extensive liner notes, featuring an exclusive interview with the lovely and graceful Birkin who helps to provide new insight on this landmark album. Received an 8.8 Best New Reissue rating from Pitchfork.
