4.0 out of 5 stars La Mer - Charles Trenet 9 Dec 2010
By D.T.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album knowing nothing whatsoever about Charles Trenet, and not knowing much French either! My wife and I really like this album, and it doesn't matter whether you understand the language or not, the music is great!
Good cooking music!

4.0 out of 5 stars All the classics 2 May 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All the old classics are on this CD as original recordings. There's a lot more to Trénet than La Mer! He wrote and recorded poetic, quirky and whimsical songs that were often quite surreal but always highly entertaining.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Song 13 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this in order to have "La Mer" - the song. Overall if you like retro music i.e. the 40's then this is a recording for you.

Must have track was La Mer. The rest: some good some just ok, guess that's why one has to have a collection of cd's. Nice for an evening in remembering past glories.
