By Peter Durward Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on April 20, 2002
Format: Audio CD
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.
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.
The variety of different songs and styles included here is breathtaking, which may not suit everybody, but demonstrates that Petula could sing just about any type of song and sound fantastic - and helps to explain why Petula has sold more records than any other British female singers, then or since.

This is an excellent collection from one of the worlds truly great pop singers of the 50s and 60s who has gone on to become an international stage theatre and screen superstar and performer.
Petula is nothing less than perfect on this collection. It reminds us of her career highlights from the 1950s and 60s with such classics as Downtown,Don't sleep in the subway , Sailor,Romeo, and This is my Song.
This album also show highlights from Petula's stage sucesses of recent years,including a superb interpretation of "Tell me its not true" from Blood brothers, having heard the original version of this by Barbara Dickson, I feel this is the definitive version. I heard Petula sing it recently in concert and it mae the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end - sensational!
Buy this you won't regret it!

I been searching for years for a song on this CD. A wonderful collection of Belafonte classics and some more obscure recordings. I really enjoy his version of some old folk songs.

There are a lot of collections of Petula Clark's recordings out there, but this has to be one of the most thorough and comprehensive on two CDs. Almost all of her hits from 1964 - 1968 are here ("Don't Give Up" is the only one that's missing). However, there are also a handful of her early hits from 1955 to 1963, and a second CD that comprehensively covers the 1970's through 2002, including songs from her Broadway/ West End shows like "Blood Brothers" and "Sunset Boulevard". The only complaint might be that the French hits are a bit scarce (only two songs in French), but that's a minor issue. As a bonus, Petula also gives her individual comments on each song in the enclosed booklet.

Over 70 years alive, Petula Clark is climbing a new top of her career. We in Germany love Petula, but singers like Dusty Springfield are more famous. Why? I don't know. For me, Petula is THE singer, her technic in singing is fabulous. In this collection you will find some of her 60's and 70's hits, mixed with absolutely new songs. Petulas clear and strong voice is young in this new pieces, very likefully! "When you get right down to it" sounds as it's been sung by a teenager, I wished it has a longer running time. Buying this double-album is buying Petula "now and then", and you can be sure: You wouldn`t regret this buy!

I would definitely recommend this album especially if you're a Petula Clark fan or even if you are not. As usual, the singing is fantastic. A good blending of old and new, including songs I didn't have in my vast Pet Clark collection. I especially loved Memories of Love, a new song recorded by her, which I'm surprised didn't become a hit. And her cover of the various Broadway musical numbers was awesome. It only goes to prove that even at the age of 70, Petula still has it. Buy this album, you won't regret it.

Ultimate Collection with Harry Belafonte is an amazing collection from a true crooner of calypso and island folk music. He has an amazing vocal ability and the lyrics for his tracks are quite well done and never sound forced or phony. It is true that most of the tracks are not written by Belafonte himself. However, still takes nothing from this collection of amazing island and calypso tracks such as Banana boat, Mary's boy child and many other nice tracks that are amazing to listen to and if one has a decent vocal abilities (like I do) then they are fun to sing as well. The book-let looks cheap but the photo is nice and shows Belafonte looking suave. This is a great summer album whilst drinking some gin and tonic.
