Synopsis


Petula Clark: A Sign of the Times
Petula Clark's breezy, sophisticated singing style made her one of the world's biggest pop stars in the '60s and early '70s, and while her popularity may have faded in the United States, she remains a favorite recording artist and concert attraction in Europe. Recorded during a special appearance at the Virginia Arts Festival, this video finds Clark in fine form as she performs a special concert featuring a number of her biggest pop hits -- including "Downtown," "A Sign of the Times," "I Know a Place," "Don't Sleep in the Subway," and many more -- along with several popular show tunes and duets with Lou Rawls ("You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine") and Richard Carpenter ("For All We Know"). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I love Petula Clark. I love the Carpenters. I love Lou Rawls. So why wouldn't I buy this DVD? This DVD features Petula Clark with guest performances by Richard Carpenter and Lou Rawls. Everyone sounds great, and the concert is spliced with vintage footage of Petula Clark from her 1960's and '70s television specials. In fact, there is one vintage clip featured that I am convinced served as the inspiration for the choreography in the 60's London scene in the first "Austin Powers" movie. At any rate, if you are looking for some fun vintage clips and quality contemporary performances by quality artists, then this is the DVD for you.
