2004 compilation for the eternal sex kitten features 20 tracks including collaborations with Serge Gainsbourg and Sacha Distel. Bardot began her acting career in 1952 and, for the next 20 years, she was constantly referred to as one of the sexiest women alive. During this time, she became a sporadic recording artist, scoring a few hit singles and albums. While many claim that it was her notoriety that shifted units, Bardot's seductive vocals were better than your average actress-turned-singer recordings that have been released over the last five decades. 20 tracks. Mercury.
