Coming back from Paris after a long stay in America, Charles Trenet
gives a stunning performance at La Varenne in front of a public which is
particularly familiar to him. There is his postman, which only flew in
Charles’ songs, his baker, the very one who beat the dough with his arms
in "Y a d’la joie", the head of the small station of La Varenne he
evokes in "Revoir Paris"… It is an almost family recital whose
atmosphere is quite singular, where he mixes new and old songs.
This concert was recorded at the cinema Le Dôme in La Varenne
Saint-Hilaire on the 16th may of 1954.
