Sylvia & Ralfi Pagan Soul Je T'aime Vibration - 525
Audio File Deleted
Ooh, boy. this one's a doozy. I initially picked this one up because it was cheap and because I was intrigued with the wrting credit, which lists co-composers Sylvia Robinson and Serge Gainsbourg. That alone is a pretty weird combination and worth checking out, I figured. Anyway, I got it home and filed it away without even listening to it and kind of forgot about it, until I got into a conversation with a friend at work about Serge Gainsbourg. Well, yesterday I pulled it out and gave it a spin and oh, brother! This one got moved up to the top of the stack quick. I'm not sure what exactly is going on here, but it seems like whatever they were attempting didn't really work out. I think this was supposed to be sexy, but to me it just sounds ridiculous, like some bad porno soundtrack gone horribly wrong... A brilliant disaster. **written on 4/09/08
This is simply a blog where I post interesting 45s that I come across. I'm not an expert on records or music history and I'm fairly lazy, so don't expect a lot of exhaustive background or research. Comments are highly encouaged...
Most of the music files presented here come from my personal 45 collection and are posted for purposes of musical enlightenment only. These are mostly obscure songs, over 40 years old, that may not have been reissued on CD. The intention is to raise awareness of underappreciated artists/songs. If you like what you hear, seek these artists out on CD or get out there and find some of this old vinyl for yourself... If you are the copyright holder and wish any files to be removed, I will do so immediately upon request.
