Souvenirs de Paris' Plus Grandes Chansons collects some of Marlene Dietrich's vocal performances from the '30s, '40s, and '50s, including well-known songs like "Lili Marlène," "The Boys in the Backroom," and "Mein Blondes Baby." Along with "Lili Marlene" and "The Boys in the Backroom," several other songs from The Blue Angel appear on this collection, such as "Illusions" and "Black Market." However, some fans might be disappointed that Dietrich's signature song, "Falling in Love Again," appears only in German as "Ich Bin On Kopf." The sound quality of this collection isn't as good as the recently remastered Der Blau Engel: The Blue Angel soundtrack, and the album's rather narrow song selections make it a less than ideal choice for Dietrich fans.
