Check out Serge Gainsbourg's "Historie de Melody Nelson" if you can

Cool (but kinda stupid) concept album about an old French dude and a younger woman. Still a great test/demo recording.

Love this album despite it’s controversial content. It was also a huge influence on Beck.

Yeah really well produced even though it could use a modern re-mastering. If there is one, let me know.

I bought the 2009 reissue / remaster on vinyl and enjoyed it. It’s the only version I’ve heard so I cannot compare to the original. The 1971 pressing was $100+ so I passed.

If you are a Beck fan do yourself a favor and listen to this album. Don’t expect Beck, however you will hear the influence it’s fun.
