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!

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.

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.

This is a great recording of evocative songs from a more gentle age. You won't regret buying this one! Just lovely.

All the classics from Trenet.....................you don't have to understand the lyrics to love the sound and feel of these recordings.Lovely as background music or to accompany an evening of French cuisine. Vive La France !

Wonderful and so evocative. Brought back childhood memories as it was a favourite song of my parents. I like all the songs on the CD.

To be honest I bought this product simply for the track "La Mer", But the rest was pretty good, too. It was nice to hear a pre-war French crooner, something that most people in this country have forgotten.. But the icing on the cake was certainly "La Mer" as I was under the impression for years that it was sung by Maurice Chevalier!

Have loved the title song for years, not knowing the name of the singer or it's writer. Having heard it in a recent movie, which gave the details of it being Charles Trenet, I was able to find it on Amazon and voila !! Truly conjures up the essence of France. Play this track over and over....

This CD was purchased specifically to remind my wife of a school holiday spent in France many years ago, when she first heard Charles Trenet's 'La Mer'. The memories came flooding back for her. Personally I found the music very enjoyable, and firmly anchored in the realms of nostalgia.
