Bardomania - Brigitte Bardot

Bardomania
Field gte not in Database

A unique, fifty track, two disc set, that from Manina, la fille sans voile (The Girl in the Bikini) in 1952, charts the first decade of Brigitte Bardot's career in films, encompassing the scores of such controversial productions as Roger Vadim's ..And God Created Woman, the film that turned her into a global sensation, and her first pop single, Sidonie, which Bardot performed in the autobiographical Vie Privée, Louis Malle's eloquent commentary on celebrity which explored Bardot's troubled love life and revealed the media's endless and often painful intrusions into her privacy.
 
Cinema had never before encountered such potent eroticism as that of Bardot. Her child-woman innocence and the daring naturalness of her attitude somehow made it all the more shocking. Here was a new kind of woman, untamed and untroubled by conventional morality.
 
While the quality of Bardot's work in the cinema will continue to be a matter for debate, it cannot be argued that her she did everything to encourage the era's oncoming sexual revolution.

Sweet Smell Of Success OST
One of the most important films of the fifties, Sweet Smell Of Success boasts one of the great jazz scores; a combination of abstract jazz themes written and performed by the Chico Hamilton Quintet and a furious orchestral score by the masterful Elmer Bernstein. These albums were released separately in 1957 - both became very considerable rarities - and are here combined in a single edition in digital format for the first time. Sweet Smell Of Success is memorable for the vicious performances of Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis and its uniquely nasty view of the tough underbelly of New York fifty years ago. It was directed by Alexander Mackendrick (‘The Ladykillers’ ‘Whisky Galore’ ‘The Man In The White Suite’ ‘Mandy’) Its audience is with jazz and film buffs and the eternally stylish! The Chico Hamilton Quintet / Goodbye Baby / Cheek To Chico / Susan (The Sage) / Sidney's Theme / Jonalah / Jam / Night Beat / Concerto Of Themes From Soundtrack Of "Sweet Smell Of Success" Our Price: £9.95

La Nouvelle Vague : The Films Of The French New Wave
Emerging in the late fifties with Truffaut's 400 Blows, Godard's Breathless and Resnais' Hiroshima, Mon Amor the French New Wave was an informal artistic movement that revolutionized the domestic film industry and had a profound influence on world cinema.The movement was spearheaded by a generation of brilliant new auteur directors; François Truffaut, Jean- Luc Godard, Alain Resnais, Claude Chabrol, Agnès Varda and Louis Malle and by such enigmatic new stars as Jeanne Moreau, Jean-Claude Brialy, Anna Karina and Jean-Paul Belmondo. Under the spell of John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles and Nicholas Ray, their films were exuberant, innovative, elegant and, at times, infuriatingly pretentious. Low budgets, jump cuts, long takes, location shooting, natural lighting, collage, improvised dialogue, overlapping sound. A melange of techniques that were far from commonplace in 1958.Stylistically and philosophically, the ideas of the French New Wave have had a huge impact on the face of modern cinema. It's legacy lives on in the work of Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Lindsay Anderson, Robert Altman and Quentin Tarantino.Our edition comprises original, historic scores from the groundbreaking films of the genre. Jazz, pop and orchestral themes by Michel Legrand, Serge Gainsbourg, Georges Delerue and others that capture the character and vitality of the French New Wave. Our Price: £9.95

Bossa Nova
Carlos Lyra wrote some of the classics of bossa nova and Música Popular Brasileira, either alone, or with such partners as Vinicius de Moraes and Ronaldo Bôscoli. His most famous compositions include Coisa Mais Linda, Você e Eu, Maria Ninguém (once claimed by Jacqueline Kennedy to be her favorite song), and Influência do Jazz. Along with Roberto Menescal, he was a primary figure of the younger generation of bossa nova musicians who closely followed the inception of the style by João Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim. With Menescal, he also created a guitar academy that became a meeting point for future artists like Edu Lobo, Marcos Valle and Nara Leão with whom he collaborated later, as part of the bossa's activist wing, seeking a return to its samba roots.João Gilberto included no less than three Lyra compositions on his momentous Chega de saudade 1959 debut lp; Maria Ninguém, Lobo Bobo, and Saudade Fez um Samba. That same year, Lyra recorded his first solo album, Bossa Nova, which we are pleased to present along with its eponymous sequel.
