Petula Clark: Lost In You (The End Records/Sony)
Steven R Rosen, Blurt, 15 May 2013
AS MUCH A surprise as finding a new album by 80-year-old Petula Clark (singer of the 1964 pop-rock classic 'Downtown') on a label that also features Art Brut, the Prodigy, Cradle of Filth and Anvil is the fact that it's really good. Not just good, but contemporary in its production and (for the most part) material, creating a showcase for Clark's reserved but convincingly involved voice.
