Universal Music and Mercury present an anthology of the filmed songs of Serge Gainsbourg in a 2 discs boxed set. Musician, songwriter, performer, painter, writer, director, brilliant tunesmith and lyrical genius, he had a gift for wielding words with bitter humour. Long disparaged and admired, but constantly in the forefront of the music scene, his work was inspired by a wild, romantic creativity. He left us a terribly-diverse repertoire adored by generations of fan. This boxed set holds approximately 280 minutes of music, along with a selection of footage chosen for its artistic quality, emotional charge and unique nature. - The formerly-unseen full version of the legendary video "Histoire de Melody Nelson", 1971. - 2 previously-unreleased song versions: "Adieu creature", "La nuit d'octobre". - 12 interviews filmed in France and Switzerland between 1965 and 1982. - 11 duets: with Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot, Philippe Clay, France Gall, Anna Karina, Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Eddy Mitchell. - 1 trio: Les roses fanees with Jane Birkin and Jacques Dutronc. - 2 videos: "Lemon Incest" and "Charlotte For Ever" and the never before seen trailer for the film. - 5 extracts from concerts at the Casino de Paris and the Zenith. - "Requiem pour un con" taken from the film "Le Pacha". - A liner with biographical background...
