First things first, P.P (Pat) Arnold is one hell of a vocalist, such a big, big voice and I have always been an admirer of her dynamic style and delivery. But, within that big, big voice, comes a big, big problem, that of coming up with good, suitable material and ensuring that material has at least good production values and here is where I differ from other reviewers.
Too often the big voice is too "over the top" and a good producer would or should have reined this in. It doesn't always auger well either if the big voice is blasting out all the way through an album and especially so if there's some material which is of less than a good quality.
Extensive notes from Paulo Hewitt inform the listener of the many tracks recorded by PP during her long career and one of these songs, (a duet with the then unknown Rod Stewart) Goffin & King's "Come Home Baby" from 1966 isn't included (for whatever reason), which is a pity as his surprisingly 'soft' vocals act as a counterbalance to PP's stunning big voice and superb delivery.
Moreover, too often the arrangements act against the vocals either because they are as big as her voice, or do not counterweight that voice, which again is a great pity.
Perhaps this combination of production values and material is the real reason why the hits dried up in the very late 60's which again is an absolute shame and travesty, because here, the predominantly UK-based PP Arnold is one hell of a singer and she deserved much better. Not that her career could ever have been considered a failure mind, but one does think about what might have been.
