Customer Review

on May 28, 2011
I first bought this in a tape version in the late 80s. Later I got an original album & now have it on CD too. I know it all inside out & never tire of it - all 35 minutes of it (this is a 1964 LP).

Frankly this has to be THE definitive Laine-Dankworth early 60s collaboration. It's classy, chic, very London-England & the epitome of that black & white filmed, stiletto-heeled, back-combed, Profumo affair age. It's quirky too & maybe an acquired taste - but hey, so's a well made martini.

If you have a yen for the lost world of The Servant, Darling, The Avengers (with Cathy Gale... of course) then this is a MUST. Cleo's voice is utterly perfect, she swings it, she hits low & high notes as only she can & quite possibly shatters a glass or two along the way. She even manages a duet with herself here, but remains oh so cool throughout! Are you petitioning for it's re-release or MP3 availability yet? why not? I am!
