Excellent singer of the early seventies

"Clodagh is based in Britain but was originally born in Ireland. At the end of the sixties, she had two massive UK pop hits, Come back and shake me and Goodnight midnight, both included on this compilation. Clodagh continued to make excellent records well into the seventies, although her best-known tracks from that period are missing, these being Jack in the box (her Eurovision song) and Save me (which failed to chart, but has nevertheless been covered by such diverse singers as the South African group Clout and the country singer Louise Mandrell).Even without Jack in the box and Save me, this is a wonderful collection that showcases Clodagh's talents admirably. There are plenty of covers here, including Nothing rhymed (Gilbert O'Sullivan), Natural woman (Aretha Franklin), Betcha by golly wow (Stylistics), Will you still love me tomorrow (Shirelles) and I will, a song that has been a hit for several singers down the years (including UK hits for Billy Fury in the sixties and Ruby Winters in the seventies) and must not be confused with the song of that title from the Beatles white album.Although the definitive collection of Clodagh's music has yet to be released, this is still worth listening to. You might have to wait a long time for that definitive collection."
One underated singer

"clodagh released many "poppy" type songs, but also many unavailable fantastic tracks i.e. It's diferent now,I who have nothing,everybody go home the party is over.some available on this album. but how do we get c.d. re-issues of everything that she has ever done.If there was any justice,Clodagh would now be a diva de luxe and a premier gay icon.BRING BACK CLODAGH WITH ALL HER ORIGINAL RECORDINGS AND SOME NEW."
Clodagh, we know so little of you!

"I was drawn to find music of Clodagh Rogers, the truly loved Irish chanteuse. Like most of you, I learned her name from the Monty Python episode "The Cycling Tour". This CD has some of her early music, but really very little, mostly her later attempt at MOR countryish '70s stuff. I was truly disappointed to find her music sorta second-third string Pet Clark or Dusty Springfield, but mostly disappointed that "Jack in the Box", her song from the eurovision song contest which was featured in Python was not on this CD package. And you cannot find that song on any eurovision disc collection either! My bet is that there could have been a better more important package put together on her, but we are unlikley to get one anytime soon. For other rare Python mentioned songs, I recommend Pet Clark's collection with "Don't Sleep in the Subway on it" the best song ever written about sulking, and the newly released collection of Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson which has " Sing Little Birdie""
