AN ORIGINAL MEMO FROM THE PHILIPS LABEL REGARDING SERGE GAINSBOURG

Rick at Dusty Groove America in Chicago – one of the world’s best record stores – kindly sent over this long lost treasure… Rick’s original French LP copy of Historie de Melody Nelson contains an internal memo from the U.S. office of the Philips label — a sheet that was circulated with the album, asking a label exec if it was worth releasing in the U.S.  Check out the attached. And do yourself a favor, visit the www.dustygroove.com if you haven’t done so.

Also, check out the new Serge Gainsbourg reissue we just released on Tuesday. It’s fantastic.  We promise.
