CD Reviews

FROM 1936 TO 1958
ALAIN ROBERT | ST-HUBERT,QUÉBEC | 09/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Without a doubt,this is the best overview of CHARLES TRENET on a single cd.It collects all his best songs,and you'll notice that from QUE RESTE-IL DE NOS AMOURS on,there is a new nostalgic approach in his songs.In his early years 1936-1943 CHARLES is a young man ,who having been in contact with surrealists figures ,is deeply influenced by this group.When the war arrives,the drama being more natural,it seems to inspire him to write melancolic songs,and those i think are his most fondly remembered today.I really like COIN DE RUE ,who symbolizes the world of his youth from a personnal experience,and also LE JARDIN EXTRAORDINAIRE which allows CHARLES to display his fantasy.These are the two aspects of CHARLES TRENET.Anyone with an interest in FRENCH music should buy this cd."
Happy go lucky reminder of pre-war Paris
M. Maynard | Detroit, Michigan USA | 01/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a delightful album that belongs in the collection of anyone who imagines Paris before World War II, or who thrills at the smile of Maurice Chevalier. It is worth it just to hear Trenet's recording of "Boum." If you bought Adam Gopnick's book, "Paris to the Moon" you will particularly enjoy this album. Play this on a Saturday afternoon during a wine-filled lunch."

"I do not have anything to add to the other reviews, only to advise to buy this one. Beautiful, very good soundquality. If you like old French melancholic songs, go for it!"
