Very Best of Edith Piaf [Mastersong] Review

by James Christopher Monger

The Mastersong label's 36-track Very Best of Edith Piaf collection features all of the usual Piaf standards (with the notable exclusion of "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien," a Piaf anthem if there ever was one) like "Vie en Rose," "Hymme a l'Amour," "J'Ai Danse Avec l'Amour," "Mon Legionnaire," and "Notre Dame de Paris" spread out over the span of two discs. While it lacks the succinctness of EMI's excellent 18-track Éternelle compilation, it would still make a fine, entry level tutorial for Piaf novices.
