ARSC Journal, April 2003

"A well-produced collection of Piaf classics from Naxos Nostalgia, a label consistently presenting aurally-impressive compilations of vintage recordings by vocalists from the middles of the twentieth century...Long live Naxos Nostalgia!

...for the audiophile interested in owning only one quality Piaf collection, this is a wise choice...Even the most exacting listener will be satisfied with the audio quality of Edith Piaf: Tu es partout - Original 1935-1947 Recordings, since many of the most familiar tracks sound significantly better here than on many other Piaf compilations. The balance between the vocal and the accompaniment is just right, and the vitality of both mine a freshness from these fifty to sixty year old recordings. Since this disc also features many of the songs most closely associated with Piaf, it provides an inexpensive way to add a high quality collection of Piaf vocals to a collection of mid-twentieth century popular music."

"Delightful collection...First rate music, first-rate performances, first-rate words. Not much not to like."
