I just posted these two recordings on YouTube (both sides of the same record). I just love these and think they are very typical of the persona Marlene Dietrich had built for herself over the span of her career. "Assez" (Enough) and "Je M'Ennuie" (I am bored) are nicely recorded on a 1933 Polydor 10 inch 78 record. There is just something wildly appealing to me about these songs. Sure, she isn't the best singer for sure, but she portrays what she is singing about almost as if you could see her singing them as the records play.

I might also like them because I purchased the record about 20 years ago from the late Edouard Pecourt. Every time I play the record I think of him. Here is another link that shows the collection in pictures Edouard Pecourt Collection.

Cleaned up the audio a bit. They are much nicer to listen to now.
