This 1968 album features a second set of songs cut with the one and only B.B. (Brigitte Bardot). Initials B.B. sounds almost like a greatest hits of funky decadence. The sensuous melodies and gorgeous arrangements make the songs like little Technicolor movies in sound. Initials B.B. continues to sound as stylish and hip as it must have the day it was released. – Press Release

“The Comic Strip compilation may be an ideal overview to Gainsbourg's pop oeuvre, but for those sick puppies interested in exploring his entire catalog, this collaboration with then-lover Brigitte Bardot is a good place to start. Many of his most infamous songs ("Bonnie and Clyde," "Comic Strip,") are here, and the lesser-known numbers achieve the same giddy decadence. Yes, the subject matter is transgressive, the performances often silly, but long after the initial shock wears off, Gainsbourg's work continues to surprise and delight. The sensuous melodies and sumptuous arrangements aspire to the visual; they are little technocolor movies in sound.” – Allmusic
