AllMusic Review by

36 Titres is a two-disc collection of material spread evenly between Montand's jazzier studio sessions of the 1960s and a live date from 1981. The studio tracks are excellent throughout, not necessarily his biggest hits, but delightful nonetheless (especially "Le Jazz et la Java"). The live tracks, however, are a bit of a mixed bag; they bely Montand's age only slightly, but are scattered throughout the set with little rhyme or reason. The selection could be improved, but there are few better Yves Montand compilations available.
