I am very happy to present a recording by the legendary Mistinguett...

The song is a lesser known one and could be translated as "It's all yours". Mistinguett is a flower girl, offering all her flowers and the happiness they bring for sale...except one...

She sings (in the final part) :

I have only one flower that is tendre and closed
and I would not sell for all the money in the world
Yes, you have guessed it right
that's my rose
and it's not for you!

Mistinguett (1875-1956), the embodiment of Paris and its nightlife in the first half of the 20th century, creator of songs and fashions and proud owner of the best legs in the world needs no introduction... It is a shame that so little footage is available which shows Mistinguett as she really was : an excellent "meneuse de revue"... So do not judge her solely by this recording, she was a fantastic entertainer and an inspiration for many other artists...

The video shows Mistinguett on the balcony of her room at the hotel Adlon in Berlin and performing around 1931. The sheet music is from my personal collection...

About the record :

Odeon (Green label)
A166107b / Ki1675
(B-side to "On m'suit")

This record is in perfect condition, it looks and sounds as if it has never been played... No denoiser or any other procedures used.

According to the website Chanson.udenap.org the recording was made in 1928 (Mistinguett's recordings were released on both Pathé/Pathé Saphir and Odeon, later on she recorded for Columbia).
