HASH(0xa497e5d0) out of 5 stars DALIDA, A FRENCH SINGER FROM EGYPT June 29 2014
By Robert Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Dalida, (Lolanda Christina Giglotti) was born in Egypt, far away from the French music industry. Unlike struggling cabaret singers like Edith Piaf, she was born into wealth, the daughter of the first violin player at the Cairo Opera House. She was crowned Miss Egypt in 1954. And studied in an affluent Catholic school. Besides her singing, she played in some notable films. She moved to Paris, despite her parents objections and soon became a very popular singer. She was very successful throughout Europe and even thought to record in the USA. Despite her success, she was unhappy and ended her life in 1987 (overdose of barbituates).

This two disc set of 50 selections contains many of her most famous recordings. All of the songs are sung in French. Some of the popular tunes are recognizable as her remditions of English and American pop music by artists like Petula Clark and Bobby Darin.

I enjoyed her music. It is backed by orchestra with a strong string section. Most of it has the flavor of the fifties and early sixties popular music in America.

A 50s abd 60s singer unknown in America but popular in Europe.
For good reason. A smoky strong voice echoing from another time and style of music.
There can't be a better compilation than this 2 cd one.
I first heard of her through a sound track of a recent Wood Allen movie.

HASH(0xa4bcaf0c) out of 5 stars Excellence in beauty, song and taste. Feb. 13 2013
By Michael J. Mcguire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Dalida was very beautiful and a wonderful multi-linqual singer. No one will ever surpass her unique and elegant style.
Especially not what is out there now or what will be down the road from now. Davida's era is gone forever.
Never vulgar or with questionable taste.
She left this world too soon, by her own hand as her life was glamorous but emotionally troubled.
Listen to her sing La Vie en Rose (not on this disk).
