nice, could that really be the original mix of the B&C track as it sounds so modern with the repeated sample of the gorilla type sound.
Gainsbourg was always years ahead of his time.
James, that sound is definitely on the original record. Like Steve says, Gainsbourg was very forward thinking, as were many of his collaborators. The promotional film for Melody Nelson needs to be seen to be believed, a few clips of which can be seen below.
