The Don's selections cross time, space and genre. Each week, as well as blending his favourite new music with classics from the UK, USA, Jamaica, Africa and way beyond, Don highlights a piece of Crucial Vinyl - a cherished album from his own collection. This week it's Aux Armes et cætera, Serge Gainsbourg's thirteenth album, released in 1979.

Don says, 'Recorded in Jamaica by the original French punk rocker, and featuring Sly and Robbie, along with members of Bob Marley's I-Threes, this record is a 'punky reggae party' essential. It includes a reggae interpretation of the French national anthem that nearly cost Serge his life.'.
