Manon 70

This soundtrack album contains the music from four separate soundtracks from the late 60s composed by Serge Gainsbourg and Michel Colombier (although Manon 70 and Anna were composed by Gainsbourg without the help of Michel Colombier). Very rare and wonderful music here. I thought this would be a good one to share since I have not seen it up anywhere online yet. Each score has a pretty different feel. The songs of Manon 70 are very dark and beautiful orchestral works, heavy on organ and piano. Most of you probably have already heard Anna, but there are some rarities there too. Funky over the top jams and intrumentals etc... The rest is a mish-mash of spy film music, orchestral work, psychedelic sitar grooves, breaks and more. This is a great collection of music and a must for Gainsbourg fans. Most of these songs are unavailable on vinyl, making this release the only way to hear much of this music. This comes highly recommended! Ripped at 320 Kbps (includes full album artwork and liner notes!). Enjoy!
