5.0 out of 5 stars More in the squeeze-box than sentiment...
Thanks to Philip Sweeney's world-wide travels in search of popular music, this is a surprise item with class. The nimble fingers and humble accordeon of the dance-halls proved to work well with the advent of jazz and swing, and blended with other instruments surprisingly well; the variety of compositions which Sweeney has unearthed is a revelation.

This is very nice to listen to while in the car - very jolly music. (Even better if travelling in France.)

Thanks to Philip Sweeney's world-wide travels in search of popular music, this is a surprise item with class. The nimble fingers and humble accordeon of the dance-halls proved to work well with the advent of jazz and swing, and blended with other instruments surprisingly well; the variety of compositions which Sweeney has unearthed is a revelation.

Another surprise item is rock-face Jean Gabin of those moody 'filmes noirs' singing on the soundtrack of Le Belle Equipe of 1936. He began his career as a singer.

I wondered before I bought this whether a whole disc of accordeon would prove too much -- or too sweet.. Not so !

Very good CD. I love Paris and their music. When I play this CD it brings me straight back Paris and my memories. Love the cover to.

Good quality and arrived quickly. Bought as a gift so have not listened to quality of playing/ recordings but searched and listened for the tracks on the internet and they transport you to France - great background music.

This review is from: France - Cafe Parisien: Chansons Accordeons Croissants - 25 Original French Accordion Songs (Audio CD)
Used it for a French evening I was very busy as there were 60 people, so I only heard bits of it as there was lots of background noise but what I heard was very good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Relax with Frenchie, 28 May 2011
This review is from: France - Cafe Parisien: Chansons Accordeons Croissants - 25 Original French Accordion Songs (Audio CD)
It's a lovely alternative to the music on the radio. I play this in the car and daydream about french cafe's, croissants, baguettes, the beautiful cobbled streets of Paris and the wonderful art nouveau buildings. Sit back and relax.

This review is from: France - Cafe Parisien: Chansons Accordeons Croissants - 25 Original French Accordion Songs (Audio CD)
Not really as good as I had hoped, I wanted French cafe music like I often hear on films but this was not really it. It is very difficult when you are not sure of the titles of the music etc.
