Please help identify a jazz CD!

I have misplaced a really great CD. I believe the name St Germain is in the title it Paris jazz, but this recording has Debbie Harry and Iggy Pop singing a song together, it also has Francoise Hardy on several songs. I desperately want to replace this CD, would you happen to know the exact title?

St. Paul, MN

Dear Linda, the disc you're looking for is called "Jazz a Saint-Germaine". It's a compilation disc of smokey French jazz club numbers, performed by a bevy of improbable artists.

The Public Radio Music Source has it here.

As my French teacher once said to my parents, "Ça pourrait être joli si c'etait décoré avec goût".
