ThÃ©Ã¢tre des Capucines 1963 is one of the earliest live documents of the legendary French singer. Recorded in a brilliant small group setting, featuring only the instrumentation of the fantastic Hungarian guitarist Elek Bacsik and French journeyman bassist, Michel Gaudry, this is Gainsbourg at his cool and minimalist best. This is the same group that recorded that year's near perfect studio album, Gainsbourg Confidentiel. This live recording takes that album's minimal vibe to its sultry and smoky extreme. A beautiful live recording from one of the most famous singers of the mid/20th Century.
