Édith Piaf

30e Anniversaire

(CD - EMI Music Distribution #4793132)

Review by

Capitol Records compiled a definitive collection of Edith Piaf's work 30 years after her death; the compilation includes both the well-known ("La Vie en Rose," "Milord," "Padam...Padam," "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien," etc.) and the hard to find (including "Johnny Tu N'Es Pas un Ange," "Un Dimanche à Londres," "À Quoi Ça Sert l'Amour?," and "A L'Enseigne de la Fille Sans Coeur," among others). At only two discs (and 44 songs), it's impossible to portray the complete picture of the Sparrow, but this is a very nice, manageable set that does a pretty good job.
