This is a 32 track collection from Petula Clark. All tracks are re-recordings. It is not noted when these tracks were recorded but her voice is great and the instrumentation is good also. Casual listeners may want to look for a single CD collection of her original recordings. Fans may be interested in this more extensive collection.
This album is just like a greatest hits album since all tracks are smash hits of the 60's by the originals artists. Ray Conniff did it even better than the original versions. I mean I've never heard such harmonies like this before, it just blows me away. Ray Conniff really did a great job for this.
This is a mish mash of songs done by stars and faded stars. Some of these artists and songs may have gone down in obscurity if not for the producers of these CDs. The uniqueness is in most of the arrangements of the familiar songs that for the most part have been done better by others. There are a few no names that will tweak your interest. Good enhanced remastering.

How about saying thanks to the city for giving me my ambition, my sense of humor and my decency. - Barry Manilow. Barry latest studio album is a musical montage with all the sights and sounds of a great city. It's filled with different styles of music: Pop, Easy Jazz, Broadway type songs, early Rock n Roll, a little R&B and a little Funk. It's a musical melting pot just like New York.
