Sans Fusils, Ni Souliers, A Paris. Martha Wainwrig&hellip ~ Martha Wainwright
4.0 out of 5 stars A good substitute, 3 Jan 2011
I love Edit Piaf's songs and her style of singing them, but have never been able to find a decent quality recording of them. This album is a good substitute. Martha's voice is very powerful albeit not as powerful as Piaf's and a tad wobbly in places. Nevertheless, the spirit of Edith comes across, possibly helped by the fact that this is an extremely good quality live recording. I saw Martha perform some of these songs live and wes very impressed, so impressed that I bought the album. I would recommend this for any Edith Piaf fans who are happy with a faithful and enjoyable rendition, rather than a perfect imitation.
