Le Pacha Serge Gainsbourg Philips 370.617, 1967
Le Pacha album cover

One of the two holy grails of French soundtrack funk (along with Le Mariage Collectif), this excellent 45 showcases Gainsbourg's most famous beat track, the superb 'Requiem Pour Un Con'. In the movie, Gainsbourg is seen very briefly in the studio recording a split second from this track, available here in its entirety. It's an incredibly ahead-of-its-time number, a massive breakbeat, an insistent simple bassline, and Gainsbourg almost speaking his acidic lyric quietly over the top. It's one of Europe's most well-known breaks records, and usually costs a three-figure sum record these days if you can find it. The flip is a sitar funk groover - no snooze in itself - so if you see this, pick it up immediately. Outstanding.

Overall Rating: 4
