Synopsis

Album Description
A superb 19 track compilation by the late '60s French pop chanteuse who's music career skyrocketed in 1969 with 'Je T'Aime...Moi Non Plus', a duet with her lover & mentor at the time, Serge Gainsbourg. The saucy song, her most popular, was banned from airplay. This set is comprised almost entirely of Gainsbourg compositions, with two exceptions, a duet with Brett Anderson of Suede entitled 'Les Yeux Fermes' & 'La Gadoue' with Les Negresses Vertes. Philips. 1996.

Etre pluse gentil, je t'en prie
Michael John ORourke | 04/05/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Birkin has a limited voice. Gainsbourgh was a troubled man. When they worked together it produced unqualified magic. He was brilliant and she was patient. Thier work is touching and ethereal. Don't expect fireworks...just sit back and appreciate his poetry and her earnest effort to express it."

"Poor production quality and barely 30 minutes of music. Poor value, oversold and overpriced."
