This section of the
website, catalogues and showcases
items held within the Petula Clark Collection which is the private
archive of www.petulaclark.co.uk. The archive collection is probably one
of the most comprehensive Petula Clark collections in the world.
archive has been utilised by the BBC and ITV for the television
documentaries Blue Lady for BBC Four, Coming Home for BBC Wales and
Petula Clark, A South Bank Show Special and London Tonight for the ITV
network to name but a few.
archive houses a vast collection of commercially released 78s, 10"
albums, 12" albums and singles, 7" singles, EPs, CDs and re-issue
pressings. There is also a large selection of important overseas
releases, many featuring foreign language recordings by Petula, and
these releases are often presented with alternate covers. The collection
also includes a significant gathering of collected works; original
photographs spanning eight decades, commercially published sheet music,
handbills, theatre and concert programmes, theatre, film and concert
posters, record catalogues, news cuttings, reference and film press
centrepiece of the archive collection is the impressive audio and video
material of recordings dating back to the start of Petula Clark's
career, including non-commercially available demo recordings and
presenting these occasional catalogues, it is hoped that the
materials held within the collection are accessible and made available
on a non-commercial basis subject to copyright restrictions.
archive collection is actively collecting when it can and further
accruals to all parts of the collection are expected. A current wants
list is available on request.
