Retro Vinyl Find: Edith Piaf (Music For Pleasure, 1970)

I saw a documentary on Edith Piaf a year or so ago on BBC Four and was rather taken with her somewhat tragic life story.

Despite so many personal tragedies, Piaf appeared to bring so much joy to so many over the years through her music and has continued to do so beyond her death in 1963.

Music For Pleasure released an album in 1970 not only lamenting Piaf's loss but also that of another young singer Judy Garland the year before on the albums sleeve notes. It may have seemed like an end of an era at the time, but certainly it was the beginning of a music legacy.

This release simply titled Edith Piaf (MFP 1396) was released in mono and highlighted 12 moments of the French Chanteuse output in both french and English including La Vie En Rose,  No Regrets, Les Croix, and The Three Bells.
