by Jane Birkin
Released: May 2006
Label: Parlophone France
By the 2000s, the very English Jane Birkin was still a French pop institution. But she was also enjoying a new reputation among maturing American and British indie rockers. On this duets set, Birkin directs things at this new audience by revisiting her old hits and doing cover versions with stars from both sides of the pond. It's hard to find fault with the bilingual set selection or Jane's choice of singing companions: Bryan Ferry helps make his Roxy Music freakout "In Every Dream Home" even more sinister, and Beth Gibbons (Portishead) and a pre-fame Feist help out, too. Brazil's Caetano Veloso and Italy's Paolo Conte join French stars Francoise Hardy, Micky 3D, Alain Chamfort, Etienne Daho and Manu Chou.
