BB SHOW



Original released on LP Disc AZ LP STEC 41
(FRANCE, 1968)



In the mid-'60s, sex kitten Brigitte Bardot released a series of mildly popular pop records, the most interesting of which being her collaborations with Serge Gainsbourg. Early on in her singing pursuits, rock video-type films were generated for each of her songs. The tracks on this "Brigitte Bardot Show" serve as a soundtrack to her long forgotten television show, which she produced and which served as a stage for her to perform her hits. The album contains 15 songs, five of which are instrumentals. The vocal tracks range from gentle ballads to bizarre psychedelic romps, all with an over-the-top theatricality and sung with a humorous pop assault. For fans of hip obscure French pop there are a half dozen groovy go-go tracks like "Harley Davidson" and "Contact" while for those of us who have long been hopelessly in love with the lovely Bardot, there is the sultry and dreamy "Mister Sun". While there was never any expectation that she would be asked to perform arias at the Paris opera house, her recordings are very fun and certainly entertaining (Zac Johnson in AllMusic)


«Figurez-vous que les shows télévisés, je les faisais gratuitement. C'était mon cadeau aux téléspectateurs, je les prenais comme une récréation. Je trouvais ça rigolo. Il faut dire que j'emmerdais bien tout le monde: je ne venais que quand je voulais, je faisais ce que je voulais, puisque je n'avais pas de contrat. C'était très artisanal, en fait. Je n'avais pas d'habilleuse, pas de maquilleuse, pas tout ce fourbi-là. Tout ce que je porte dans les chansons est à moi. (...) Je n'étais pas une professionnelle. J'avais beau avoir répété plus ou moins avec Claude Bolling, j'envoyais tout promener de temps en temps. J'essayais de faire les choses le mieux possible mais je les prenais un peu à la rigolade - et lui pas du tout. Il me faisait recommencer des passages qui n'étaient pas dans le tempo et moi, ça m'emmerdait. J'aimais tout faire d'un coup» (Brigitte Bardot)
