Product Description

Product Description

In 45 tracks spread across two CDs, Petula Clark The Ultimate Collection features all her major triumphs from the 1950s and 1960s, including two UK No 1s and 10 UK Top 10 hits. Beside the UK hits sit a series of worldwide smashes and several tracks that have become highlights of her live sets over the years. Recordings taken from Petula's various films and stage shows are also present, as are several rarities including four brand new, previously unreleased songs which are unique to this collection. Each song has been digitally re-mastered using 24-bit sound quality, but The Ultimate Collection doesn't just sound amazing, it looks great too. The album comes packaged in a deluxe slipcase and contains extensive inner sleeve notes that include many previously unpublished photographs and an exclusive interview with the lady herself. The perfect overview of Petula's long recording career.

There are to many Petula compilations out there. So, as a fan, when I heard about yet another I was less than excited. It was only when I heard there were actually previously unreleased AND newly recorded songs on this CD that I decided to buy it.
Disc 1 covers all the hits from the 50's 60's and 70's. Great songs like Downtown and I Couldn't Live Without Your Love. Disc 2 starts with a great new song 'Memories of Love'. Its catchy, snappy and sounds really fresh. Petula sounds not a day older than when she recorded Downtown. What follows is a selection of hits from the screen musicals she starred in (Finians Rainbow & Goodbye, Mr Chips) along with the stage ones (Blood Brothers, Someone Like You and Sunset Boulevard).
The new songs sound very modern as Pet shows she's not stuck in the 60's. The sleeve notes contain comments on each recording by Petula herself - and there are some nice pictures to.
When an Artist has recorded over 1000 songs - its difficult to make an Ultimate Collection. But if you want the hits from the Charts, the Movies and the Shows - then this is the CD to buy. It's also great to hear new stuff.
I really do rewcommend this to those who aren't die-hard fans and those who have seen Pet in the press and thought "Oh yeah, Pet Clark, I remember her...!"
Hope you enjoy it!

The Sound of Petula has been ringing in our ears for just over 60 years. This 2cd set highlights her recordings from the late 1950's to 2002. All the megahits from the 60's and 70's are included but surely the standout is Memories of Love a song destined to become a huge hit for Petula in 2002 given the right publicity. The set also highlights Britains most succesful solo artists' achievements in film, TV and stage and also features gems such as Never Been A Horse and Nik Kershaw helping out on Oxygen which shows the lady can rock with the best of them. The set shows that there is a lot more to Ms Clark than Downtown, many of her peers have rated her the greatest living white soul singer, the diversity of material on this collection highlights this fact perfectly. Petula Clark is a British national treasure and national treasures are thin on the ground these days. This set deserves a top ten chart ranking on top of the top 20 position it has already achieved. Buy it - Pet deserves the acclaim and you deserve to listen to one of the great artists of all time in her Ultimate glory.

The brilliant American compilation, Downtown to Sunset Boulevard, was never released in Britain, but this compilation is clearly inspired by it. The time-span is greater - the oldest hit here is Suddenly there's a valley (which gave Petula a British top ten hit despite competition from Gogi Grant and others) - and there are some new recordings here too.
The pre-Downtown era is also represented by With all my heart, My friend the sea, Romeo and Sailor (a hit in America for Lolita under its German title Seemann). It also includes Chariot, a French million-seller, for which Petula recorded an English version called I will follow him (not included here). Petula's English version did not chart in Britain or America (although it did well in other countries), but Little Peggy March covered it and had an American chart-topper with it, and also had a British hit with it.
The peak years are represented by mostly the obvious tracks, though it is nice to see Two rivers included. This is a song Petula wrote herself about her divided loyalties between London, where she spent her early years, and Paris, where she has lived ever since.
The seventies and beyond are represented by an assortment of stage and movie songs along with a few other songs. These are often different from those selected for the Downtown to Sunset Boulevard compilation - Finian's rainbow and Goodbye Mr Chips are represented on each compilation by different songs - so you may find it worth buying this whatever music of Petula's you already have.

A couple of previous reviewers have mentioned e'bay's 'incorrect tracklisting' but done nothing to alter it? Disc 1 is correct, it's just Disc 2 which I've entered below for anyone wanting to know the 'correct' tracks.

1. Memories Of Love
2. La Vie En Rose
3. I Don't Know How To Love Him
4. Look To The Rainbow
5. London Is London
6. On The Path Of Glory (Petula Clark & Harry Belafonte)
7. Wedding Song (There Is Love)
8. Never Been A Horse That Couldn't Be Rode
9. Twelfth Of Never
10. How Good It Is To Know You
11. Don't Cry For Me Argentina
12. I Could Have Given You More
13. Sound Of Music
14. All Through The Years
15. Oxygen (new mix)
16. When You Get Right Down To It (Petula Clark & Michael McDonald--previously unissued)
17. Tell Me It's Not True (solo version)
18. Perfect Year
19. Here For You
20. All Those Years Ago [new recording with Richard Carpenter]

I've only nipped in to help with the tracklisting & not to do a complete review guys. However, for what it's worth, personally I can't get on so much with Disc 2's duets & new recordings but love Disc 1's original hits. I'm not a massive fan though [just a fan of 60's music] but I'm sure for big fans of 'Pet' Disc 2 will be perfectly alright for you.
Cheers.
