Format: Audio CD
These recordings are very evocative of the France before and after the second world war. Charles Trenet was known in France as the singing fool. His style of singing ranged from the comic through romantic and also the jazz era in France after the war.His popularity has waned since the sixties but is now becoming more popular as his unique singing style is being re-discovered by a new generation. Download a few examples from the internet to explore his comic genius.

This is what I call happy music-it is full of joie de vivre and cannot fail to make you smile. It is also very good value as there are 3 C.D.s included.

A superb and extensive set of all the very best Trenet songs. All the classics are here (La Mer, Boum etc) and digitally remastered too. A superb buy at approx 7.

Very good value. All well recorded with perfect clarity. I prefer the quieter softer songs amongst the collection than the `dance hall` numbers but well worth it for the 50 odd I like. He has a lovely soft voice in that romantic French style. Sort out the soft ones from the rowdy ones and you have a nice chill-out selection.

Not normally the musc I'd buy, but coming across it by chance my interest was raised. The French take their Trenet seriously and though he is from another time - for me a time I regard as typically French, a little romantic and good for the soul!

This collection shows the range of Trenet's songs and appeal; perfect for a relaxing time with a glass or three of your favoutite tipple looking out at the stars and thinking.......!

Trenet is an icon of French Chanson. Songs that stay in the memory for a long time, evoking a bygone and much loved France

It's easy to understand why he was a major star in French popular music, not to forget he was a necessary antidote to Edith Piaf. One needn't be fluent in French to enjoy his music.
