A seventies masterpiece

"This brilliant but overlooked gem was Petula's first album after she left her old record labels - Warner in the USA and Pye in the UK. The set begins in brilliant fashion with The wedding song (There is love) which was later covered by Captain and Tennille.Petula included several covers on this album, all of which are superb, including Solitaire (the Neil Sedaka song more commonly associated with the Carpenters and Andy Williams, who both had hits with it), Don't hide your love (Neil Sedaka), Shelter (Joe South), Baby I'm yours (Barbara Lewis) and My guy (Mary Wells).Petula wrote one song herself - Song without end - and also included a song by Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent, despite having split from them.While this is not one of the important albums of Petula's long and distinguished career, it is an excellent showcase for her talents and is a great addition to any collection of her music."
Some of Petula's BEST tracks on this album

"OK. Overall, maybe this album doesn't necessarily rate 4 stars (there are a few weak songs that unfortunately pull the rating down a bit...), but - and here's the important part - this album contains some of the best recording work Petula Clark has ever done. Her recordings of "Wedding Song" & "Solitaire" are nothing short of magnificent. No exaggeration. Her voice has never been more solid, focused, expressive - while at the same time vulnerable & delicate. There are some other goodies on this set, too (expecially "My Guy"), but it's the previously mentioned two that make this album a "must have." On a scale of 1-5, I give this album a 4 star rating. On a scale of 1-5, I give "Wedding Song" & "Solitaire" a SOLID 35!!!!!! Her voice will simply melt your heart on these songs."
Enjoyable Easy Listening

"Just an all around flowing and relaxing album. Petula's voice soothes on low tempo numbers like the "Wedding Song" and "Your Heart Is Free..." - while being bouncy and vibrant on "Don't Hide Your Love" and "Baby, I'm Yours." I'm not really a fan of "It's A Musical World," a bit of a weak song with which to close out the album. On the other hand, "Wedding Song" is wonderful. I love the Biblical allusions and beautiful picture of Christian marriage. If you enjoy the voice of Petula Clark, this is definitely an album worth getting."
