Synopsis

Album Description
From her beginnings in the slums of Paris to the limelight of New York, Edith Piaf's life was a constant battle to sing and survive, to live and love and her magical voice made her a star on both sides of the Atlantic. Piaf, the subject of a recent, critical acclaimed film entitled La Vie En Rose, was a phenomenal singer taken too soon. She died tragically in 1963, succumbing to a morphine and alcohol addiction, but not without leaving behind a rich body of work. First time listeners would find her nearest American analogues in figures such as Judy Garland or Billie Holiday. This set is a great introduction into the world of a true musical treasure.
