Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally
(Emily Dickinson)


Here is a great song ("Le Grisbi" – "Grisbi Blues"), from the famous French movie "Touchez pas au grisbi" ("Hands Off The Loot", 1954), performed by the glamorous Liane.
Liane, also known as Liane Augustin (born in Berlin, Germany, in 1928), was an acclaimed European cabaret singer, gaining fame for her performances in Vienna's intimate Boheme Bar. Her popularity resulted in regular radio concerts, a series of Vanguard recordings and appearances in international nightclubs. Liane's style is her own, although of course she suggests both Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich. Liane is here at her best, with the imaginative support of her regular collaborators, "The Boheme Bar Trio", consisting of pianist Michael Danzinger, Laszlo Gati playing guitar and accordion, and bassist Willi Fantel. Arrangements, mostly by Danzinger, are tasteful, gentle and appealing. Liane made a total of 11 LP albums for Vanguard. In addition, she was Polly Peachum in Vanguard's recording of Kurt Weill's "Three-Penny Opera" with a cast otherwise drawn from the Vienna State Opera, which won a Grand Prix du disque in 1957. She was chosen to represent Austria at the Eurovision Song Contest 1958 with the song "Die ganze Welt braucht Liebe" ("The Whole World Needs Love"). She died in 1978, in Vienna, and was memorialized on May 26, 2009 as a co-namesake with Marx Augustin of the Augustinplatz in Vienna, a public square bounded by the Neustiftgasse, Kirchengasse and Kellermanngasse.
Enjoy Liane's great style!
