It was Noel Harrison's exquisite reading of Charles Aznavour's "A Young Girl" that made me originally purchase this LP in STEREO on London Records in 1966. And from start to finish, the collection of 12 songs was a joy, showcasing actor Harrison as a more-than-competent singing wannabee. Retrospectively, it still possesses an artful freshness and diversity that simply evaporated when he moved to Reprise Records and cast himself as an easy-listening folkie. His hit remake of the Leonard Cohen standard, "Suzanne," is, unfortunately, more remembered than any of these earlier recordings.

Backtracking to this particular reissue, however, prospective purchasers should be aware that the entire CD is taken from the MONO LP master tapes, which were apparently identical to both its U.K. release on Decca Records and its U.S. London Records counterpart. And with that being the case, the stereo collector who would be hopefully eyeing this CD to obtain a clean version of "A Young Girl" in stereo and the rest of the album in its rarer two-channel glory, will be deeply disappointed and puzzled by how Rev-Ola repackaged this '60s souvenir.

Although there is no mono or stereo designation on the outer packaging, the buyer is assured that the contents were licensed from Universal Music Group, guaranteeing master-tape quality. Open the CD and on the label is the designation "Visual Stereo." So far so good, and by this time the disc is probably in the CD player, so you hit Track 1, "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue." Mono. Skip to "A Young Girl." Mono. Sample all the others. Mono! Mono! Mono!

I grew up with this album years ago when it first came out in the late 60's. Somehow over the course of time, we lost track of the actual LP, only managing to save the cover. So, I was tickled to find the CD remaster available recently. Noel's versions of these time tested songs were fairly new at the time, but unbeknownst to me at such a young age, I was being exposed to Dylan gems and the like long before I would ever hear the originals. A Young Girl stands out to me as the obvious hit here, and still manages to move me even to this day. Check this CD out. It's a groovy look back at a hipper age, indeed.

Must admit I purchased this product for just one song-A Young Girl (of Sixteen) to replace the version I've had on vinyl for over 40 years. Sound was crystal clear and after all these years it was nice to hear a forgotten classic without all the hiss and pops that I've grown used to. Excellent album for those that enjoy hearing songs that no longer seem to have radio airplay.

The first time I heard "A Young Girl", I was floored. What an ending! DEAD! I did not see that coming, for the first time in my life I was listening to a love song that goes terribly wrong. No happy ending, no moral, nothing but here you go over the cliff and spiraling down at turbo speed. This was the first album that I ever bought that covered alot of musical ground, a little Dylan, a little Billie Holliday etc. It holds up well considering the fact that Mr. Harrison does not possess the best voice.
