Great track..i hadnt heard the original before,but was aware of Marc Almonds cover in 1993....which i liked esp when sung live,but the original is something else.Great voice.Dennis he is up there with the most amazing people to have ever walked musical earth and was dubbed France's Frank Sinatra. I had no idea anyone else on here like him and so for a while thought myself somewhat strange having played his tracks many a time on the Juke Box thread.
During the german occupation of france during World War II Aznavour and his family hid “a number of people who were persecuted by the Nazis, while Charles and his sister Aida were involved in rescue activities.” Their work was recognized in a statement issued in 2017 by Reuven Rivll, President of Israel. That year, Aznavour and Aida received the Raoul Wallenberg Award for their wartime activities. "The Aznavours were closely linked to the Missak Manouchian Resistance Group and in this context they offered shelter to Armenians, Jews and others at their own Paris flat, risking their own lives."
Here is one of my favourite songs and an also wonderful video production. What a life and what a journey !
