Henri Salvador

Today I bought a CD of Henri Salvador's greatest hits. Salvador's voice was incredible, dulcet tones like velvet. Sadly, his voice recently left the earth and so the French are in mourning. He was an incredible singer and a very likeable man with an easy laugh. He might also have been the last of the great French singers, at least for a while. Today's French singers can't hold a candle to Piaf, Chevalier, or Aznavour.
