Petula Clark....320 Kbps


Petula Clark's many french recordings...

I think the cover is great...songs are good too not many well known ones...
Over the years she has recorded some great album's and singles...
One of her best CD's in my opinion was one called "Blue Lady"..."The Nashville Sessions"She recorded it in 1975 but it was'nt released till 1995 it was recorded for the ABC Record Company...reason for the delay according to the review was "Creative differences with the label" ...whatever that means so it was lying on a shelf for 20 years
