Downtown: The Greatest Hits of Petula Clark

Genre: Reissues; Lead Performer: Petula Clark; Producer (group): BMG, Buddha

In her mid-’60s heyday, Clark had six top 10 hits — all here — and was the first Englishwoman to reach No. 1. Her signature songs (”Downtown,” ”I Know a Place”) evoke groovy Carnaby Street quicker than you can say ”miniskirt.” But her less known tracks (”This Is My Song,” ”Who Am I?”) haven’t aged nearly as well.
