Yikety Yak

The late-night cable favorite Gwendoline (or as we Americans know it, The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik-Yak) was the last collaboration between director Just Jaeckin and composer/French pop star Pierre Bachelet, who also brought the better-known Story of O and Emmanuelle. Tawny Kitaen stars as an American explorer looking for a mythical butterfly who, with her two companions, winds up in a demented S&M neverland run by a sadistic queen. Never released on CD and only available on vinyl in France, this sweet, catchy score features Bachelet's typically strong melodic instincts and boasts some tracks that rank among his best (especially "Gwendoline" and "A Pikao"). Forget the corrupt and glitchy torrent files floating around out there; this is a fresh new rip direct from the original.

Thanks man... I have been searching for this score for years and years. Tried to buy the Vinyl second hand a number of times and failed... I was already happy when the movie was re-released a couple of weeks ago, but the music is too buried behind dialoge and soundeffects to rip it from the movie. Your posting really made my day! I think the score is (though cheesy in parts) way better than the movie and definitely gets my total cult approval. The quality of the rip is excellent, specially considering how old the vinyl is, wow! 1000 Thanks!

Glad you like it! Luckily the vinyl was pretty high quality to begin with, which makes things easier; I have no idea why it's never been on CD. If you like this, also try the soundtrack to Laura I posted recently -- very much in the same style.

I have just stumbled across this thread and would really appreciate it if you would make the Gwendoline soundtrack available again on rapidshare. I have tried the link and it no longer works.

I have been searching for this for a long time - I have the vinyl but it's not in good condition and don't have a turntable anymore.

I hope you can help.

Thank you.

7 Black Notes......THANK YOU!!!

You have no idea how long I have been searching for this....

Listening to A Pikao right now....

Your efforts are really appreciated and the 192 kbps Bitrate is great quality.

Thanks again.

That you put this up is beyond cool. You are really making great scores and rarities available to the common folk. Pierre Bachelet is my favourite composer, so I can't wait to get this.

Now if only Le Dernier Amant Romantique could be found.... got that on vinyl, be awesome to hear it on the pod.

Thanks again.

Hi! I was not sure, but is this link to the site still active? Noticed last comment was two years ago.

Thanks
