5.0 out of 5 stars Charles, Je t'adore October 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
You can see from the title I am a devoted Aznavour fan and have been for 40 years. I have attended several of his performances and even met him once briefly. He is an extraordinary singer/songwriter and performer. He is 81 years old now and although he still records, he doesn't tour much outside France as he used to. He has, however, made a number of DVDs. Unfortunately, they have only been released in PAL format. I have so many Aznavour recordings. I bought this because it has a nice compilation for CD but it is by no means definitive. It's interesting, because I also have the Spanish version of this CD, "Sus Mas Grandes Exitos" which has the same cover, but a slightly different mix of songs. The French version omits "Que C'est Triste Venise" and "Mourir D'Amour," two of my favorite songs, but they are included on the Spanish. There are so many more than 20 songs which I consider Aznavour classics, that it would take many more CDs to contain. That said, I highly recommend this CD for both the diehard fan and the casual listener. It's a wonderful example of the work of this extraordinary man. He has never made a bad recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is he singing about?? May 29, 2003
By PES
Format:Audio CD
Recently I saw the movie "The Truth About Charlie".. the movie was just okay.. but there was this older gentleman singing throughout the movie.. and his name is Charles Aznavour.. I had never heard of this guy but there was something about his voice that was amazing.. I did some "Internetting" and decided that this was the CD to buy.. I believe I made a fine choice.. I have no idea what he is singing about because it's all in French.. but it doesn't even matter.. This guy can sing.. I also ordered a CD on which he sings in English.. I can't wait to hear it.. There is a duet with Edith Piaf.. I need to do some research on her too... so much music to discover.. I'm very glad I've discovered Charles Aznavour..

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING April 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
You can take Edith Piaf, Gilbert Becaud, Yves Montand and put them together and don't even come close to Aznavour. Had the distinct pleasure of seeing him at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, as well as, the Olympia Theater in Paris, France, and other venues throughout Europe. Aznavour is the quintessence of the interpreter of songs (ala Sinatra and Ella), as well as, a most prolific writer of songs in the realm of Jimmy Webb, Gershwin, etc. His emotions and sensitivities are evident in EVERY performance that I have had the pleasure to witness. NONE BETTER!!!!! In addition, these traits are evident in every recording available by him. BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Voila, Le Maitre January 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recently "discovered" Charles Aznavour in the used vinyl section at a local second hand shop. There I occasionally find gems while picking through the weathered relics of bygone decades. The same shop once yielded a now-beloved Nana Mouskouri album from the sixties, with songs in French. My French is passable at best, but it's easy for me to pick up on the romanticism of post-war French popular music, a romanticism which is now largely passe, apart from serving as background music at Macaroni Grill or the Olive Garden. I just love songs in French. Anyway, the Aznavour album was packaged basically like an album by Perry Como or some other "popular singer" of the era, but I sensed from the extensive liner notes that the lyrics (all written by Aznavour himself) were the work of a true artist. I hoped that his voice would not prove as dated as the packaging. I took a chance. I was not disappointed.

The production value reminds me of the fore-mentioned Nana Mouskouri album of the sixties. Some of it sounds a little Austin Powers, a little swinging sixties, but I don't mind. Musicians from that era seem much more versatile, more well-versed in all kinds of music from all over the world. The featured musical fills, whether by violin, accordion, what-have-you, are so tasty, so expert that they're almost boring; you take them for granted. Then there is the heavy orchestration, the notorious 40 piece violin sections. Fortunately none of it overwhelms the man's delivery and songwriting skills. His singing style does not sound dated in the least. It sounds timeless. He is masculine and strong, but not overly so, like Sinatra, who to me often sounds ponderous and self-important,dated like a WWII relic. Aznavour's delivery is light, subtle and rich, passionate yet disciplined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Voice, Great Music March 13, 2004
By J. Dunn
Format:Audio CD
I had the identical experience as the previous fellow. I watched the movie "The Trouble With Charlie" and was completely taken aback and intrigued by the Charles Aznavour tunes playing in the background. Although somewhat familiar with French cafe music, I must admit that I had never heard of this guy. All I can say is that after buying this CD I have become a fan for life. This is romantic music at it's best, the kind you want to play afterhours with your arm around your lady and a single malt in your hand. Utterly charming and uplifting, rendered by a master at the top of his game.
