Charles Aznavour started his singing career in the late-40s after Édith Piaf heard him sing and arranged to have him accompany her on tour in France and the United States. Following the tour, Aznavour opened for Piaf at the Moulin Rouge in Paris. By then he was already often referred to as "France's Frank Sinatra." Aznavour has gone on to record over 1200 songs in eight different languages. He has also been a prolific songwriter, with over 800 compositions to his name. This LP combines his first complete album sung in English, 1962's The Time Is Now (tracks 1-12), with six of his debut English language songs, which appeared on Believe in Me in 1958.
