"In Her Own Write" is the definitive collection of Petula Clark's finest compositions, encompassing the period between 1980 and 1995. As well as her compositions it features stunning memorable performances from Petula herself and 18 of the tracks are being released on CD for the very first time.
This lovingly-prepared collection has taken many months of careful preparation, tape research and re-mastering in order to present this stunning retrospective of some of Petula Clark's finest compositions. All the songs featured on this set have been composed or part composed by Petula.
The sixteen page booklet that accompanies the album features a detailed track by track commentary as well as liner notes specially written by Dee Shipman and Tony Hatch plus many stunning photos including previously unpublished shots. As well as commercial recordings, the album includes themes and an unreleased film soundtrack scored by Petula herself and also songs from the Petula Clark / Dee Shipman musicals "Someone Like You" and "Zola".
This is the second release for Sepia Records on their 8000 series and this collection is being fanfared in celebration of Petula's 65th year in show business since first being discovered by the BBC in 1942.
