• Edith PIAF - En Anglais and live at Carnegie Hall

A deeply intense, dramatic and harrowing singer, Edith Piaf - known as 'The Little Sparrow' - was France's biggest star for nearly thirty years from the mid-'30s to her untimely demise in 1963, aged just 47.

This unique compilation includes all of Piaf's known surviving English language recordings.

Most of her major songs are featured, notably 'Hymn To Love' ('Hymne À L'Amour'), 'La Vie En Rose', 'The Three Bells' ('Les Trois Cloches'), 'Autumn Leaves' ('Les Feuilles Mortes'), 'My God' ('Mon Dieu'), 'No Regrets' ('Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien'), 'Heureuse' and more!

Disc one comprises studio sides, recorded between 1950-61 whilst on disc two we are treated to wonderful live recordings from two memorable concerts at New York's prestigious Carnegie Hall, in January 1956 and January 1957.

Greatly improved sound quality on many of these recordings.
