I bought this CD 'blind' about a year and a half ago and barely a week has gone by when I have not played it through at least once - it falls into the category of music that always digs its hooks into you no matter how many times you have listened to it. Most of the songs comes from the era of the likes of Sinatra and Dean Martin, with the backing music orchestral and fantastic in its own right, and coupled with the sort of lyrics you just don't get any more. This collection of 40 songs will take you through all the emotions, laughing at Tu T'Laisses Aller, crying at Non Je N'ai Rien Oublie, Que C'Est Triste Venise (that mandolin!), or being thoroughly uplifted by Emmenez-Moi. Anyone who has seen 'L'Appartement' will recognise 'Le Temps' as the song the two lovers dance to, swooping in time to the pacy, thrilling tempo. The songs are varied and cover the entire range of Aznavour's recording career, so there is not a single song that does not deserve to be here. I get the feeling that the album compiler had a difficult job deciding what to leave out, rather than scrabbling around to find enough songs to make up a 'Greatest Hits', something that seems to have happened with other artists' collections. If you do not know Aznavour's music but want just one album, this is the one - you really will not regret it, now or ever!

A great selection of songs in French sung by a remarkable performer.
A must for anyone who appreciates an artist.

I bought this CD to replace some of my obsolete cassettes. It has some of Aznavour's best songs, and is an essential addition to anyone who loves the genre and admires Aznavour. It also has the advantage of having 40 songs on only 2 CDs, which is great.

All the best songs on two CDs. If there is one CD to buy from Aznamour, I'd say it's this one.

The CD is wonderful to listen to and each song takes to another world of beauty and nostalgia.
