Next RENDEZVOUS! (March 2nd) is Serge Gainsbourg Tribute Night!

Join us this Wednesday, March 2nd as RENDEZVOUS! returns for its monthly session at Verdugo Bar! This next session is a special one because it happens to land on the precise 20th anniversary of Serge Gainsbourg's death (March 2, 1991). As a tribute to this fine legend, will be screening three of his classic films, and of course be playing lots of his music - both well known stuff as well as rare gems. We will also be playing our usual gamut of 60's & 70's soundtracks, library, psychedelia, funk, soul, and groovy sounds from Italian & French lost archives! And if that were not enough, a food truck will be serving delicious eats on the patio!

Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin - Pour Oublier Le Passé, Le Futur (DJ Alfonso Re-Edit)

Ultra rare French 7", and a cult item! Superb sensual groove by Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin on "Pour Oublier Le Passé, Le Futur". Recorded in 1970 as a jingle for a radio show, but only released in 1983 to commemorate the work of José Artur, a famous French radio programmer. I found a 39 second snippet* online and turned it into a complete re-edit! (*Please note: due to this being the only sample I could find, the audio quality is not the best)
