La Femme Dietrich's career lasted several decades, and when she inked a deal with Decca Records in 1939, her first recording assignment was to produce an album of her "greatest hits," so already pervasive was her fame. This 16-track collection rounds up selections recorded over a 25-year period between her signing to Decca and her later recordings for Dot and Kapp, all of which parent company MCA-Universal now owns. Besides the definitive, elegant orchestral reading of 'Falling In Love Again', Marlene also puts her pipes and personality to other hits like "The Boys in the Backroom" and "You've Got That Look (That Makes Me Weak)" from the movie Destry Rides Again, as well as a batch of classy readings of "You Do Something to Me," "You Go to My Head," and uncharacteristic, almost surreal 1957 rock & roll stabs at "Near You," and "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine" and the campy spins of her final single in 1965, "If He Swing By the String" and "Such Trying Times." All in all, a great little career overview to add to the pop vocal side of the collection.

Mick Harvey released Intoxicated Man and Pink Elephants in 1995 and 1997, respectively. They were two of his first three solo albums apart from being musical director for Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, and they are both tribute albums to Serge Gainsbourg. Harvey was among the first native English musicians – if not the first – to delve so deeply into the vast catalog of songs from France's great musical icon (who was Belgian by birth). Both titles feature well-known Gainsbourg tunes, done in English with their French titles placed in italics side by side.

Genre: Pop, Rock, Chanson | Label: Philips

La fantastique histoire de Johnny Hallyday en six compilations, telle a été l'heureuse initiative prise par Universal. Six albums - et que de grandes chansons (choisies, dit-on, par l'artiste en personne). En dix-huit titres, ce dernier volume couvre les années 1985/1997. Loin de s'essouffler, la carrière de Johnny a alors connu une nouvelle dynamique grâce à des compositeurs de la trempe de Michel Berger ("Quelque chose de Tennessee") et de Jean-Jacques Goldman ("J'la croise tous les matins"). "L'Envie" et une version absolument imparable de "Que je t'aime" constituent également deux moments forts de cette superbe anthologie. Un album à l'intensité toute rock'n'roll !

Spring 2016 will be the 50th anniversary of the music for A Man and a Woman, Francis Lai's birth-certificate as a film-music composer. To commemorate the event, Play-Time is proud to present this 7CD boxed set entitled Francis Lai Anthology, a collection whose simple aim is to present the (very) original soundtracks composed by the great Lai, now carefully restored for the occasion. Each album in the set has its own concept: Lelouch-Belmondo for example, with the music from Itinerary of a Spoiled Child and Love is a Funny Thing, or Lelouch-Hallyday, notably for the electrifying score from L'Aventure, c'est l'aventure (Money Money Money), a pop tsunami that was never published after the film's release… until now. The set also includes the CD Double polars (from the films Body of my Enemy and The Crook), the iconic original score of Bilitis, here for the first time in its splendid unabbreviated version, and also a CD devoted to the productive association between Francis Lai and René Clément (with the music from their films And Hope to Die and The Baby sitter). Along the way, the contents reveal previously unreleased music and other rarities: the complete signature-tunes that Lai composed for FR3 Television; pieces written for short films (notably works directed by Claude Pinoteau); and an iconoclastic reading of Les Etoiles du Cinéma, specially recorded by the brilliant pianist and composer Jean-Michel Bernard in tribute to his master.

Hotel Amour is the musical love affair between Pink Martini bandleader Thomas Lauderdale and the crowd-surfing post-modern diva Meow Meow, backed by members of Pink Martini. These two friends have performed and composed together across the globe for years, from the backstreet bars of Berlin to the glamorous stage of the Sydney Opera House, from London's legendary Royal Albert Hall to Mary's Club, Portland's legendary strip club. Hotel Amour features several sparkling originals alongside exquisite journeys into the French, German and Shanghainese canon of the 20th century, with alluring tastes of the 1920s and 30s, bittersweet tragedy, humor, politics, witty Weimar, and aching French torch song. And the album includes joyful duets with fabulous guests, including Rufus Wainwright, Barry Humphries (of Dame Edna fame), and The von Trapps, as well as a very special live recording with the legendary late French pianist and composer Michel Legrand.

Joe was an easy listening pop singer who died in the early eighties while still in his prime. This collection contains the best of his music from 1965 to 1979. Some of the songs are of French origin and it would appear from the credits that he co-wrote some of them. He sings one of the tracks here (The guitar don't lie) in English, although the other 45 tracks are all in French. Apart from the French songs, there are a number of other songs that he sings with French lyrics. It is clear from the titles that at least some of them have completely new lyrics rather than being translated from the original. I conclude this review with a list of some of the songs that might be familiar to you, to give you an idea of his range of material. Despite his easy listening style, the sources of the songs are diverse, including country and folk as well as mainstream pop songs.

Michel Sardou est né à Paris le 26 janvier 1947. Fils de comédiens (Fernand et Jackie), il arrête ses études en Terminale et anime les soirées du cabaret de son père. Michel Sardou sort son 1er 45 tours Le Madras en 1965. Lentement mais sûrement, il fait son chemin. En 1969, sa chanson Les Ricains est boycottée par les radios, ce qui décide Barclay à se séparer de lui. L'année suivante, c'est donc chez Tréma que Michel Sardou rencontre le succès avec son titre Les Bals populaires.

One of the most enigmatic figures in rock history, Scott Walker was known as Scotty Engel when he cut obscure flop records in the late '50s and early '60s in the teen idol vein. He then hooked up with John Maus and Gary Leeds to form the Walker Brothers. They weren't named Walker, they weren't brothers, and they weren't English, but they nevertheless became a part of the British Invasion after moving to the U.K. in 1965. They enjoyed a couple of years of massive success there (and a couple of hits in the U.S.) in a Righteous Brothers vein. As their full-throated lead singer and principal songwriter, Walker was the dominant artistic force in the group, who split in 1967. While remaining virtually unknown in his homeland, Walker launched a hugely successful solo career in Britain with a unique blend of orchestrated, almost MOR arrangements with idiosyncratic and morose lyrics. At the height of psychedelia, Walker openly looked to crooners like Sinatra, Jack Jones, and Tony Bennett for inspiration, and to Jacques Brel for much of his material. None of those balladeers, however, would have sung about the oddball subjects – prostitutes, transvestites, suicidal brooders, plagues, and Joseph Stalin – that populated Walker's songs.

Genre: Pop, Chanson | Label: Jacques Canetti Productions

Legendary French record executive, talent agent, and producer Jacques Canetti recorded French singer Jacques Higelin's first disc in 1965, though their meeting dates back to 1954, when Higelin was 14 years old and was already singing Trenet – at the time, Canetti refused to work with teenagers, whatever their talent. To celebrate the 2015 50-year anniversary of his career, the release of his 2013 album Beau Repaire, and a 2015 residency at the Philharmonie de Paris, Jacques Canetti Productions reissues his first album, with two bonus duets with French poet and vocalist Brigitte Fontaine. CD in digipak with 16-page booklet and exclusive photos.
