First of all, what an astonishing title for an album. Intoxicated Man features classic Serge Gainsbourg material from the period 1958 to 1962, when our man was in his simmering, swaggering pomp. Intoxicated Man maps out a very particular style of cool, which Serge absolutely excels at. Double LP on Le Chant du Monde.

Intoxicated Man is a comprehensive look at the first five years of Serge Gainsbourg’s recording career, covering his first four albums plus a host of singles, soundtrack work, live recordings. Although best known for his later acts of public provocation and musical sleaze, these recordings are far less radical than anything else in Serge’s lengthy canon. It ends with fourteen same-era Serge covers from artists like Juiliette Greco, Pia Colombo and Petula Clark which are nice enough, but I’d trade them in a second for more Gainsbourg originals.
