Wewantsounds is proud to announce the release of Serge Gainsbourg's cult 1968 soundtrack for the French film "Le Pacha" featuring one of Gainsbourg's most famous tracks ever, "Requiem Pour Un Con." Digitally remastered from the original tapes, it is the first time the full soundtrack is released on vinyl in its entirety. The Record Store Day LP edition, housed in a deluxe gatefolded sleeve, will feature artwork by French Alternative Movie Poster Maxime Pecourt, full musicians line up and liner notes including an interview with bass player Francis Darizcuren who played on the sessions
This release also includes the never-heard before full instrumental version of the "Requiem Pour Un Con" with its famous breakbeat and two bonus tracks from William Klein's 1968 film "Mister Freedom".
These tracks were composed by Serge Gainsbourg with famed arranger Michel Colombier, who had been responsible for some of Gainsbourg's best songs and had also arranged Pierre Henry's classic "Psyche-Rock" around the same time (Check the similarity between "Psyche-Rock and the track with "Un Noel 67" on this set.)
It is pure undiluted Gainsbourg with his classic psyche-pop sound of the late 60s.
