CD Reviews

A great album - A must-have for fans
Jenna A. Aubert | Gaithersburg, MD | 12/07/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Usually I don't enjoy live recordings, but this album makes me forget that fact. There are some songs such as the "My Fair Lady" ensemble that are not available on any other Pet Clark albums, and yet is just wonderful."
Petula is Fabulous!

"I have heard all of Petula Clark's studio hits many times since childhood, but this is the first chance I have to hear any of her live performances. My personal verdict? Fabulous! Her live vocals are absolutely beautiful here.

This live 1972 performance catches the essence of that era, and there is an absolutely surreal meeting of the subcultures when Ms. Clark sings the medley from "Hair." The counter-culture pieces are performed in pure pop-variety-show mode. The introduction she gives before the medley is actually very touching; she mentions the impact of being a mother of two has had on her life, and she dedicates the "Hair" medley to... Peace. It's almost hard to picture such a dedication sounding anything but satirical, but she comes off as sincerely heartfelt.

All of her 1960s hits are here, and she does a flawless job on every one of them. For those of you under 40, this CD will send you that jubilant "Austin Powers" aura; for the rest of us, this serves as a top-rate quality nostalgic romp. Petula Clark, you are fabulous!"
My step-dad loved this

"My step-dad saw Petula Clark in London while she was being recorded for this collection (he was in the Navy at the time.) He told me that he always wanted a copy of this because of her beautiful voice and he was there while it was happening. So, I searched out Amazon, and voila! He was so happy to get this. I liked it too. It's been a good while since I bought it, right before he passed away in August of 2005. I was really glad that I could get this for him, and he treasured it. Because he's gone, I now have it, and wouldn't take a million dollars for it."
