Going to see Sunset Blvd? Buy the CD there instead!

"Great CD, but if you are going to see Sunset Blvd in a future date, buy the CD there. You will get 3 Sunset Blvd songs as well (As If We Never Said Goodbye, A Perfect Year, and With One Look). If you are going to the play, it's worth waiting to get the CD!"
Not one of Petula's best, but some excellent recordings

"In my opinion Petula Clark is the most sensual looking and sounding singer/composer in the last fifty years. Her photographs over the years have conveyed a sensitivity, vulnerability, and softness that few entertainers possess. Petula has lost some of her range and vocal control and of course sounds much older. However, she sounds remarkable for her age, and at 66 years old she still sounded better than most of the best contemporary female vocalists.I believe that the lyrics she has written over the years are as good as any female vocalist in the rock era and her Here for you is the best song on the album. Children will listen and Seasons of love are excellent recordings. Her version of I never do anything twice is much better than the other Broadway recording. Pet's version of Seasons of love is excellent.Pinball Wizard could be the title track of a Worst of Petula Clark album. Many of your neighbors could do it as well on Karaoke night. You should buy this album if Petula Clark is one of your favorite female vocalists.I added a star for the beautiful photographs included with the CD."
Petula still in reasonable voice in her sixties

"By the time these recordings were laid down in 1996, age had started to catch up with Petula, but this is still a fine album, with songs selected mostly from stage and screen. It even includes a new version of Look to the rainbow, from Finian?s rainbow, the movie for which Petula is perhaps best remembered. There is also a cover of Pinball wizard. Although the version here is good, I wonder what Petula might have done with it in the sixties or seventies.Most of the songs here are slow or mid-tempo, which suit her better at this stage of her career. I particularly like Children will listen, a Sondheim song from Into the woods, but the standout track is the title track, which was written by Petula herself. Petula has never been given the credit she deserves as a songwriter. One day, maybe, one day.A special tour edition was made of this CD, including three bonus tracks from Sunset Boulevard. That is the edition that I own, but even without these songs (With one look, The perfect year and As if we never said goodbye) this is still a high quality album. As Petula began her career as an actress, this takes her back to her roots."
