A Romantic, Melancholic, Sentimental, "Feel-Good" Disc Oct. 1 2011
By Stephen C. Bird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Truthfully, I tend to prefer 20th century French singers who are less well-known than Aznavour (but still famous in their own right, IE Serge Gainsbourg and Françoise Hardy). However--this disc is an excellent overview of the work of the "French Frank Sinatra" (which is a compliment to Sinatra). Many of the numbers on this CD are concerned with lost love and lost youth. And so, this is a a great record for "those of a certain age" who are in the mood to reminisce. There are many superb melodies here; Aznavour either wrote, or co-wrote, all of the tunes included in this collection. My absolute favorites are: Je M'Voyais Déjà, Hier Encore, and Emmenez-Moi (words and music for all three by Aznavour). This disc is a tribute to Aznavour the composer as well.

Highlights include: "Et Pourtant"; "Le Temps"; "Que C'est Triste Venise"; "La Bohème"; "Les Plaisirs Démodés" (combining a psychedelic big band sound with that of a nostalgic ballad); and "Les Comédiens", with its Latin-tinged arrangement. The orchestrations for all these songs are across the board fantastic. The only number I'm not crazy about is the schmaltzy English-French hybrid "For Me ..... Formidable". Knowing French will also heighten one's appreciation of this record. In closing--a quote from the Charles Aznavour biography on Amazon: "He sings with a voice which the French describe as 'Après l'Amour'."

20 songs of gold is a fine compilation of aznavour's songs.
just a joy to listen to.
i had the chance to attend an aznavour program in paris where
he sang many of the songs on this disc. it was great fun to sing
along--along with 1,000 others.
i do recommend this to any lover of old time french cabaret
singing and anybody else.
La Boheme June 22 2013
By Visa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
La Boheme was the reason for this purchase . I had hoped for some of Aznavour's other equally beautiful ballades. These
Chansons are OK but not as "golden" as was my expectation. I was also disappointed in an other CD I purchased from you by Juliette Grecco . I guess it was my fault for not buying it in France.
Aznavour: the ultimate gentleman of the love song. Sept. 15 2014
By Carlos Verdecia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Aznavour is the classic gentleman of the love song. His style is unique and has that elegant touch that makes him inimitable. It's sad that he is now on his farewell tour, likely pointing to retirement. In today's world we need him more than ever.
Outstanding! April 25 2011

Aznavour is daring and tender, exquisitely expressive. I am thrilled to have this CD of his earlier songs! The music of my life (at least at one point)!
