Imagination Lady
NEWLY REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC 1972 ALBUM BY CHICKEN SHACK
WITH TWO BONUS TRACKS
BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1972 album by CHICKEN SHACK.
"Imagination Lady” was the fifth album by the group and the band had undergone changes to the line-up, instigated by band leader, guitarist STAN WEBB, prior to the recording of the album.
Now a trio featuring JOHN GLASCOCK (Bass) and PAUL HANCOX (Drums), the album saw STAN WEBB head in a hard rock direction, albeit with Blues influences, resulting in a fine album featuring such classic tracks as ‘Crying Won’t Help You Now’, ‘Daughter of the Hillside’ and the epic ‘Telling Your Fortune’.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and includes two bonus tracks, previously unreleased on CD, taken from two respective singles. The reissue features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.

From St. Tropez To Paree
Serge Gainsbourg was known outside France primarily for the heavy-breathing Masterpiece J'taime Moi Non Plus but to those at home he stood as the ultimate rebel artist. His poetry was compared to Rimbaud and Baudelaire, his morality to the Marquis de Sade. He wrote and directed four controversial movies, published a scurrilous novel, his records were often denounced as obscene and he was perpetually embroiled in scandal, whether for turning up drunk on a TV show and offering to F*** fellow guest Whitney Houston, recording a reggae version of Le Marseillaise or burning a 500 franc banknote on prime-time TV.

Gainsbourg was surely the only man ever to have written hit songs about the joys of incest, sodomy, motorcycles and cigarettes and to still be awarded the Chevalier Des Arts et Lettres, his country¹s highest artistic honour. Summarising his approach to life and art, he said: "Without controversy it would all be very boring" and "For me, provocation is oxygen." Gainsbourg died in 1991, since then his influence and popularity have only grown. His life is celebrated in Joann Sfar's recent film, Serge Gainsbourg - une vie heroique (Serge Gainsbourg – a heroic life).

Brigitte Bardot, BB, La bebe, is a symbol of the age of the Pill and the Playboy philosophy. After her first film at the age of 17 she was catapulted to fame. Her beauty and unashamed, sensuality are well known, it's arguable that no woman has ever created a greater impact on her times and film-makers, actresses and designers continue to pour through the doors of permisssivity she kicked open with elan.

Love Is My Profession / Une Parisienne
1957 and 1958 were pivotal years for the young Brigitte Bardot. Hard on the heels of her breakthrough with And God Created Woman, they involved an idyllic comic role in the popular Une Parisienne opposite Henri Vidal and Charles Boyer, followed by arguably her most scandalous film, En Cas de Malheur (Love is My Profession), which had the Catholic Legion of Decency up in arms. BB also fell in love with the jazz guitarist Sacha Distel and their headline-grabbing romance was for two years the seemingly singular obsession of the international pop media. BB’s activity of the period is compressed into our edition: Both of the rare film soundtracks, Ray Ventura’s much sought- after jazz tribute to the Bardot legend, La Belle Bardot, completed by Sacha Distel’s performance of his paen to his lover, ‘Brigitte’. Our Price: £9.95
