AllMusic Review by

Le Disque D'or is a below-average sampler of kitschy French pop from '60s icon Brigitte Bardot. While the recording quality is fine and the songs are quite fun, four of the 15 tracks are instrumentals (probably not what someone purchasing a Brigitte Bardot CD would be looking for since she never seriously played an instrument). In fact, since the liner notes say next to nothing about the recordings, one of the only selling points this record company is offering is a half-naked photo of the actress on the cover. In the album's defense, most of the songs she is most closely associated with are represented here, except possibly for her version of the racy "Je T'Aime...Moi Non Plus" (the breathy love song was recorded in 1967, but on demand of Bardot the song was not released until 1986 and can be found on Serge Gainsbourg's 1988 album Classe X). While this may be snatched up by completists and collectors, the average Bardot fan would be better off picking up Polydor's Best of B.B. or The Brigitte Bardot Show on Flavour of Sound.
