Serge Gainsbourg's first concept album, "Histoire de Melody Nelson", published in 1971, holds a very special place in the artist's discography. In the aftermath of the global success of "I love you, me no more", inspired by Brigitte Bardot and then by his new partner Jane Birkin, he decided "to get down to business". With the collaboration of a very young musician, Jean-Claude Vannier, he signs an album hailed as one of the most remarkable successes of orchestral pop music throughout the world.
