Are you kidding: I have several versions of her singing Non, je ne regrette rien.  Plus M'lord; Hymn l'amour; Three Bells, Droit de amour.  Piaf is a giant, still, and my hope with the movie is that more people will discover this great artist.  Been listenign to Charles Aznavour, another great artist who wrote such wonderful songs as Yesterday, When I was Young, You've Let Yourself Go, Happy Anniversary, Reste, You've Got to Learn, etc.  He was a protege (and lover) of Piaf; Montand was another one.

Listening to a wonderful, "early music" rendition of the story of Robin and Marion by Ens. Micrologus. Perfect love story with a happy ending!!   Cheesy

I've been out of town for awhile.  Read a nice article in The Guardian on Fairport Convention on the way home on the plane,

NYT, pay no mind to bottle, I have been enjoying the Traveling Willburys box set.  My only gripe is that they could have put in a few more extras.

Fariport the top band? All a matter of opinion or preference. I would vote for Steeleye Span or Pentangle.

Sandy Denny spanned both bands, as I remember. Personally, I like Steeleye Span better as well.

I just bought the Traveling Wilburys set (since I've had the Vol. 1 for years and love it).  THis is one funny album with Dylan's hilarious Tweeter and the Monkey Man), containing many references to Bruce Springsteen songs.

I cannot wait to receive the new Wilburys set.

Personally, my favorite Beatle was and still is George Harrison.

"...they could have put in a few more extras..."

The only thing the songs ever had going for them were the Harrison and Orbison vocals, and the Springsteen rip was a rather unneeded and unkind cut, and what is Tom Petty doing in there, bad move since he is still trotting out the pop gem every few years. 

Other than the fear component, you might've been better served mugged of the $30, which might've trickled down toward decent music.
