These are her songs, but NOT the original recordings

"These are Petula's songs, but NOT the orignal recordings. These are re-recordings done by Petula in the 80's to very different arrangements. For the seasoned fan, these are interesting diversions, but NOT nearly as great as the originals. I would NOT have purchased this CD if there would have been a track listing, which would have verified that these were the re-makes from the 80's.
Suffice it to say that anything Petula sings is great. However, if you are looking for the original hit versions of HER songs, this is NOT the CD to purchase. I also understand that these are songs she does NOT receive royalties to, so you are not supporting Petula by purchasing this CD.
Buy the BMG set "The Ultimate Petula Clark", "Then and Now, The Very Best of Petula Clark", or "Supersounds from the Superstar" if you are looking for the real thing. If you have the 'real thing' already, try "Open Your Heart, A Love Song Collection", featuring some of her 70's gems!"
