France, 1972, avant-folk / chanson
Brigitte Fontaine – Brigitte Fontaine: Let’s listen to a beautiful folk song, so mellow and soothing—oh what the fuck is that screaming! Nicely done. Now let’s move on to some half-sung poetry accompanied only by some tribal drums. Where is this album going? Religious overtones one moment, silly spoken word tidbits the next. Wonderful in its unpredictable eclecticism.
