There must be a million Petula Clark compilations out there but if you are looking for the best of the best, I would recommend "The Ultimate Collection" (2002), Kaleidoscope (2003) and this three disc set which covers mostly her 60s and early 70s work.

All the major hits, including "Downtown", "I Know A Place", "My Love" and "This is my Song" are spread out amongst the three CDs, in addition to the many album tracks and covers featured here. This may be too much for the casual Petula Clark, but if you are burgeoning fan like I am, this is worth adding to your collection.

If you're a big fan of Petula Clark like I am, then this collection is for you. Not only does it have her big hits on it, there is a fine selection of some of her best album work. The three CDs show her versatility. I truly believe that Petula can sing anything, whether it be rock, easy listening, blues, or country. I particularly like her cover versions of popular songs. She truly makes them her own. Enjoy!

Petula Clark is more than well represented in this mostly 60's 3 cd set.She shows her romantic and tuneful craftmanship on these A and B sides with some select cuts from her warner years.

I found this 3 cd set broken into themes(each cd),as fresh as pop music comes. Her collaborator Tony Hatch is largely responsible for the creative original song writing. Petulas covers of Charlie Chaplin's "Eternally","Smile",and "This is my song" are romantic and deliciosly produced.You'll be going"uptown" if you buy this beautiful set.It is collector colorful,and any Petula fan should be proud to own it!

This cd set has so many hits it reminds one of Petulas clout as England's most popular female singers of the 60's.She rivals Dusty Springfield in her range and good taste in production.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on August 2, 2005
Format: Audio CD
This triple CD focuses on Petula's most popular years, with a theme for each CD. The first CD shows what the swinging sixties was as all about with plenty of up-tempo rocking songs. It includes the inevitable big hits - Downtown, I know a place, I couldn't live without your love, Don't sleep in the subway, Color my world, A sign of the times, Round every corner, The other man's grass is always greener - but it also includes many minor hits and album tracks. The second CD is described as mellow but is really an easy-listening collection. Some of the songs (including This is my song, Kiss me goodbye and Happy heart) do not fit my definition of mellow. With fewer hits than the first CD, this CD is dominated by album tracks. The third CD is supposed to showcase Petula the diva by including some of her most dramatic performances that don't belong on either of the first two discs. Actually, some tracks would sit comfortably on one or other of the first two discs but I can see what the compiler was trying to do with this set.

Aside from Petula's own hits, the songs are a mix of covers and originals. Some of the originals (You're the one, Call me, I don't know how to love him) later became hits for others and are not generally thought of as Petula's songs. Among the other originals, I particular like 31st of June, which rarely appears on compilations of Petula's music.

Among the covers, there are plenty of song that fans of sixties music will recognize, all of which Petula sings superbly. I was particularly pleased to find Have I the right (Honeycombs) and I want to hold your hand (Beatles). If Petula had recorded faithful covers of these songs, they would have belonged on the first CD, but Petula's very romantic interpretations of these songs belong where they are - on the second CD.
