Wewantsounds present a reissue of Serge Gainsbourg's cult score for the 1968 French film Le Pacha. These tracks were composed by Serge Gainsbourg at the height of his '60s cool when he was briefly going out with Brigitte Bardot and the couple was on the verge of recording the infamous first version of Je T'aime... Moi Non Plus (1969). All the tracks here are arranged by famed arranger Michel Colombier, who had been responsible for some of Gainsbourg's best songs (Bonnie & Clyde and Harley Davidson) and had also arranged Pierre Henry's classic Psyche-Rock around the same time -- note the similarity between Psyche-Rock and Un Noel 67 from this set.

Digitally remastered from the original tapes, this is the first time the full soundtrack is released on vinyl in its entirety. Includes two bonus tracks. Includes liner notes featuring interview by cult French bass player Francis Darizcuren.
