Niceness. That tracks was the basis for track from a Brazilian singer named Daude. I was always curious where the beat was lifted from.

It's been remastered to death, the SQ is eye popping on this compilation: http://www.amazon.com/Initials-Sg-Best-Serge-Gainsbourg/dp/B00006IW6I


on "Requiem pour un con", you get the killer drums and bass on the right channel, his U87 recorded vocal in the middle and a shaker on the left channel...1968? yeah, right! it sounds like it was recorded last week. the U87 microphone grain will never age, I so much love the sound of this microphone.


Gainsbourg is w/o a doubt one of the most gifted french speaking musician/singer from the 60/70's, he's got so many killer funky tunes...like this album, that I must have listened to a thousand times: 



He also did 2 killer reggae albums, recently remixed in dub..pure goodness!

whether "Sex Machine" would have become such a planetary hit w/o Bobby Byrd is still open for debate IMHO:

"an excellent slab of heavy, spaced-out jazz funk"

François de Roubaix was the king of funky OST's in the 70's...the french Lalo Schifrin basically:




the movie has aged badly(I recently saw it in pristine HD), but the whole OST is really top notch...like Portishead 30 years earlier.


and this big classic("Les Dunes D'Ostende"): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFHAk7zfAHo


The funny thing is that sometimes he doesn't use a funky beat but you can still hear it very clearly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdmc-XjXG2Y


OMG the last link is just [:radiohead2113] when the beat arrives in the middle(I've got all those soundtracks on CD).

Hi, good to see the thread still kicking.


This is track is awesome, never heard of it before. It appears in 'Breaking Bad' episode 4. A great show that happens to have a great soundtrack.


Darondo, "Didn't I"



and from episode 5. Check 'Bronx River Parkway' if you get a chance. Deep Latin Funk.

Bronx River Parkway, "Deixa Pra La"

any song called 'Chums Pimpage' has to be worth a listen!

Requiem pour un con has also been sampled in this tune, together w/ some Ennio Morricone: http://www.google.com/search?tbs=vid%3A1&q=EPMD+Symphony+2000


Method Man has such a killer tone.

The sound on those videos sounded very good...

there's a B-take of "rock me again and again and again.." w/ JB on this CD: http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/14508-the-singles-vol-9-1973-1975/


but all in all vol.8 was much better, w/ many B-takes like the vocal cut of "hotpants road"...still, those compilations are remastered from the original mastertapes and it's always a major treat to listen to the real deal and not a Nth gen. copy.


And JB more or less stole the FAME riff from Bowie, but it's funny to hear that Larry Jon Wilson also used it in 1977:

the dub version of "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More, Baby" on this remastered CD is just amazing: http://www.hip-oselect.com/scr.public.product.asp?product_id=6C793007-13A8-4F84-9818-52CB38176977&cat_id=F69DD616-5BEA-4DA8-970F-37342F4DC3A3


whatever soul or reggae, Hip'o'Select really have it going on!
