Philippe Nicaud – Erotico…Nicaud
With an artwork by the famous painter “Aslan”, this one is my french Holy Grail. The music is as good as the cover. Philippe Nicaud is a french comedian from the sixties who acted in wack parisian plays. The music go from bossa to jerk or funk orchestra. Nicaud doesn’t sing he speaks, the lyrics are not explicit but there’s innuendo! I think that this lp is musically better than the better Gainsbourg LP from the 70’s. All the ingredients are there: horn, strings, male and female scat over funky breakbeats. A must have for french amateurs or funky beat lovers.
