One of French provocateur Serge Gainsbourg‘s most popular albums, Histoire De Melody Nelson will get the deluxe treatment with a reissue packed full of new and unreleased material.

The concept album will be released in three formats: Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Vinyl Picture. Along with the unreleased material, all albums will include a DVD with music videos and a documentary featuring interviews with composer Jean-Claude Vannier and Jane Birkin.

what an good site. The info has helped me with my preliminary research. I’m at school and I have a term paper to produce. I was likely going to get great custom essays on the web, however your site has made it simpler for me address freelance writers obstruct and so i think that I can move forward by myself. Thanks all for this great content.
