"Jean" is the original version!

"I was familiar with Rod McKuen's poetry but not his recordings, except the wonderful song "Jean" (the theme song from The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, one of my all-time favorite films). I looked for this song for a long time and it was available only on some of his greatest hits compilations that are now out of print and very expensive to acquire secondhand ($100 or more!). So when this new compilation came out I bought it, not knowing if the sound quality was good or if the song would even be the original version. Both of my hopes were highly fulfilled - the sound is great and "Jean" is indeed the version I remember from the movie. I'll listen to the others, but I bought it just for this song so if others out there are looking for it, the version on this CD is the one you want."
