Ma Cherie Amour...Essential French Crooners...40 Popular Chansons

This 40 track collection of French chansonniers will take you back to the heady days of the early to mid 20th Century when the cafes of Paris were alive with singing and dancing and the celebrated Rive Gauche was the place to be. 

This selection of singers and their trademark songs featuring Serge Gainsbourg, Charles Aznavour, Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel, will explain why French popular music of the period continues to exert an enduring appeal.

  1. Thanks Marty. I do like a bit of Chanson. I start my "Far Away Places" radio show each week with a French song. In fact I've been presenting my other show "Gems From The vaults" for 7 years, playing all the types of music you described in your blog header. So it was a pleaant surprise to discover your wonderful blog. Keep up the good work! Regards, Bob Sevier.(Angel Radio)
