Various Artists- Paris After Dark

I recently picked up this CD at a used record store and was really impressed with all the great music that it contains. Paris After Dark compiles songs from the 1920's - 1950's or the classic French chanson period of music. This is the type of music that would play in the cabaret and even brothels of the city during this time period even as the Nazi occupation of France was in full swing during the 1940's the music remained. Highly recommend this one to anyone with any interest in music from France or just from this time period in general as you will not be disappointed by this great little CD.
