Worth Collecting For One Brilliant Song

"If you are a serious Petula Clark fan, as I am, you probably have most of the songs on this failed collection (a "Vol. 2" was never released), but there is one track here that is REALLY hard to find: "Oxygen." This should have been a huge hit. I am a DJ, and whenever I play this track at parties, people stop whatever they're doing and take notice. It never fails to prompt someone to run up to me and ask, "what is that?" Not really a dance track, it does have a vaguely 80's disco feel, but perhaps the best description I can come up with is that it's like Petula meets Jean Michel Jarre. If any of you fans out there can tell me what the original source for "Oxygen" is, I would love to know; I Googled it a while back, and came up with nothing more than listings for this collection, and one other compilation. Clark's official website lists a remix of it, too, but I was still unable to get much more info. Petula sounds great, here; the song is very different for her, and if there has ever been an entire Pet Clark album of this style of music, I would love to locate it, but of course, I need a title!
The rest of this set is pretty good, and it only includes a few songs that have been available on lots of other collections, so if all you have is one of the more common greatest hits CD's, and you want a little more from Petula, there won't be many repeats here.
