NATURAL LOVE - THE SCOTTI BROTHERS RECORDINGS

After achieving tremendous success as an international music star in the 1960s and 1970s, Petula Clark began a new phase of her American music career when, after a short hiatus from the States, she was approached by Scotti Brothers Records to return to the recording studio. 

Label owner Tony Scotti was a fan of Petula's work, and knew that she was capable of singing a variety of styles, including country-flavored tunes. 

Scotti's instincts proved dead-on; the slick and twangy toe-tapper Natural Love, Petula's debut release for Scotti Brothers, not only brought her back to the Billboard Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts but also to the Top 20 Country Singles list in 1981. 

Its success set the stage for follow-ups: Petula's plaintive take on the western torch favorite Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain and a pair of pop ballads, Love Won't Always Pass You By and Dreamin' with My Eyes Wide Open

Ironically, at the time Petula wasn't able to capitalize on or properly promote her renewed popularity in the U.S., as she was tied up starring in a record-setting revival of The Sound of Music on stage in London through 1982. However, Scotti Brothers did take advantage by issuing a single for the British market of Petula performing Edelweiss from the beloved musical - a song popularized by Petula's childhood friend Julie Andrews in the movie version. Now, for the first time, all of Petula's Scotti Brothers Records masters are brought together in an album featuring all eight single sides - including a pair of original Clark compositions (Because I Love Him, Darkness) and three additional songs not originally released for a total of 11 tracks, several of which are making their CD debut. It's a missing cache of music from one of the most important and versatile voices in the pop world, with incisive liner notes from The Second Disc's Joe Marchese, period photos and digital remastering by Mike Milchner of SonicVision. Natural Love is released on 03 June 2016. Another all-time great female singer brought to you by Real Gone Music!
