Here’s an interesting record especially with the anniversary of Burial at Sea Episode 2 coming up soon.
While the original French version has been featured here before, Édith Piaf sang an English version shortly after her success touring the United States with Les Compagnons de la chanson.
As you may recall, all the records of Burial at Sea have been featured here before.
Here are the compilation posts for your perusal:

Robert Chauvigny was a classically trained musician and arranged music for Édith Piaf for most of her career. He would also bring the accordionist Marc Bonel to work with the orchestra.
Together with manager Louis Barrier, the three would remain a stable constant throughout Piaf’s life.
Not only did Chauvigny tirelessly play the piano for rehearsal sessions and conduct the orchestra for “Milord” , “Le mots d’amour”, and “Non, je ne regrette rein”, but he provided the mysterious voice for “Un étranger”.
