Martha sings Piaf,
This review is from: Sans Fusils, Ni Souliers, A Paris. Martha Wainwright's Piaf Record (Audio CD)
This is a brilliant album. Martha Wainwright manages to sound like Edith Piaf, but the production and sound quality make this even better than the original Piaf. Martha also chooses the songs that suit her voice best and that have not dated. Her French is impeccable and I highly recommend this album.

Of course the production and sound quality are going to be better - this was recorded decades after the original songs were! But better than Piaf? No.

Nor does she sound like Piaf - this is an album of Piaf songs, not of Piaf impressions. A great performance.
