Les....pour la rose (fragment)




[Handwritten note on typewritten tape log in box:] Piaf? [Note on typewritten tape log in box:] He says nobody knows this, doesn't remember all the words. Rubin says she might find the words for him. And he might be able to get a job in a nightclub since French songs are popular now... [Ed. note: The full title of the song is actually “Comme un petit coquelicot” and is from the repertoire of Les Compagnons de la Chanson.]
