L’anthracite  performed by  Serge Gainsbourg  (1959)
Composed by Serge Gainsbourg
Arranged by Alain Goraguer
From: France
Recommended by whoops [profile] on Sunday 4th January 2004

Early Serge Gainsbourg masterpiece with an "exotica" feel. The backing track is a far-east melody while the lyrics are simply beautiful. Gainsbourg used the characteristics of the anthracite to describe his feelings about a girl. It's a kind of first step into what was to be the apex of his first period, the "Gainsbourg percussions" LP of 1964.

from N°2 (Philips)
available on CD - Couleur café (Mercury/Philips)
