Too bad it's in English

"If you don't have any Charles Aznavour albums, try one in his native French first. This album is almost entirely in English and he is somewhat laboring to put the proper feeling into a language with which he's not entirely comfortable."
Easy listening Charles

"Charles Aznavour,just like Edith Piaf,a piece in time,UNFORGETTABLE,ROMANTIC and FOREVER. I love French music,and Charles Aznavour is truly a clasic out of the old Paris,yet keeps his audience SPELLBOUND with his soothing voice. This english collection album is a must have for anyone,who wants to plan a romantic getaway with a loved one.from ALTEREGO in Tulsa OK"
Get the French recordings
The Turtle | Weverton, MD USA | 03/09/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)
"I have to agree with those who'd suggest getting the original French recordings of these and other Aznavour pieces. On a few tracks, like "Old-Fashioned Way," of course, he's tremendous and the recording just drips with style, but on other tracks he sounds forced, drawn-out, as if someone is clipping his toenails while he's being recorded, or as if he's wearing a shirt collar that's too small. I hadn't been familiar with Aznavour's work, but have since dabbled with the French-language material he's done over the years and found them to be much more representative of this giant French star. Get this one for completeness, but get the French material to really hear what this legend can do."
