PETULA CLARK NOW, the British singer's first and only release on MGM Records--which went out of business just as the album was coming out--is largely made up of tracks from a UK-only release called JUST PETULA. Seven of NOW's 11 songs can also be found on that release, including a lovely version of "The Wedding Song (There is Love)" and fun covers of the pop hits "Baby I'm Yours" and "My Guy."
The other four songs--"Don't Hide Your Love," "Shelter," "Your Heart Is Free Just Like the Wind" and the Broadway-styled "Nothing Succeeds Like Success"--are sonically similar enough to the four songs eliminated from JUST PETULA that one wonders if perhaps they're outtakes from the same sessions. Overall, NOW is a fine example of the sort of easy listening adult pop Petula Clark was doing in the mid-'70s.
