AllMusic Review by

Souvenir De Paris is the Living Era label's tribute to classic French pop of the '20s, '30s, and '40s. From Georges Thill's version of the "Marseillaise" to Yvonne Printemps' "Plaisir D'Amour," this album captures the romantic, glamorous appeal of French nostalgia. Maurice Chevalier contributes two songs, "Oui, Papa! (Everybody Loves My Girl)" and "Valentine," as does Josephine Baker, with "Petite Tonkinoise" and "Si J'Etais Blanche." Jean Sablon, Lucienne Boyer, and Tino Rossi are just a few of the other chanteurs and chanteuses included in this delightful collection.
