 Update me on new releases by Becaud

Gilbert Becaud (10/24/1927 - 12/18/2001)

Toulon-born composer-arranger and legendary singer 'Monsieur 100,000 Volts' Gilbert Bécaud (1927-2001) first toured the States as accompanist to Jacques Pills, the husband of Edith Piaff at the time who had encouraged him to take up singing. Bécaud modelled his own singing style on Frankie Laine and Johnnie Ray. His Paris Medley includes his own Si tu partais ("What Now My Love") and Cole Porter's I Love Paris (from the 1953 musical Can Can, filmed in 1960).
