This record is a collection of the tracks written and recorded by master of the French chanson, Serge Gainsbourg and other singers from 1958 to 1959. Notice in passing how the singers of Gainsbourg's early material all had in common a deep and low-pitched voice. From then on, he would try his best to push his songs as much as he could towards the higher notes. Previously-unreleased track "Les Mots Inutiles" was written by Julien Grix (Gainsbourg's first pen-name) in 1955. The lyrics were first modified in 1958 and again in 1962, when this version was recorded for a TV show in Vienna. Interpretations on CD2 by Juliette Gréco, Jean-Claude Pascal, Hugues Aufray, Michèle Arnaud, Alain Goraguer, and Les Frères Jacques. Packaged within a full-color hardcover 36-page book in English and French, with extensive historical liner notes.
