One of the later and more outstanding of Petula Clark's albums, Portrait was accompanied by an NBC special of the same name in In an unusual but typically gracious act, Petula let Andy Williams sing Happy Heart, which he had just released as a single even though she had just released it as well. Andy had the bigger hit with it. With this album Petula stepped away from the Tony Hatch hit era that had begun with Downtown in and had led to a remarkable string of fifteen hits in a row.
They had a collaboration much in the way of Dionne Warwick and Burt Bacharach, and stepping away meant that the songs for the new album had to be carefully chosen, and indeed they were. The first thing you notice about this album is the high quality of the songwriting with each song being distinct and memorable.
The overall effect is of a softer sound than the strongly upbeat Hatch-Trent songs. The range of material is impressive.

Saw Petula Clark in a live concert recently, and was surprised, impressed, and thoroughly appreciative. Her talent has not diminished, her energy and ability to connect with her audience is genuine, and we should indeed be happy to have such a special icon in our midst. Enough cannot be said about her interpretive skills; she has the talent and ability to make many of our favorite popular songs her own.
A special lady. One person found this helpful. For the most part I enjoyed this CD. Clark's voice after all the years of singing is very strong and most pleasant. This record contains new material and covers mostly good.. The one exception is her version of Fever. Sounds off key to me. Overall a positive listening experience. Her new cd is a mellow mix of covers and self penned songs and the material serves her well. The first single Sacrifice My Heart showcases Her mellow, deeper voice and is a contemporary standout.
Petula Clark fans celebrate that at 83, She is still entertaining and making excellent music. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Petula has had one of the longest recording careers in the world from to date and this new album is a testament that experience of such a long life has enriched her voice and gives her the chance to show off some of her song writing skills on songs such as " Sacrifice my heart and talent for giving her own interpretation of cover versions of Peggy Lee's "Fever" and the Beatles "Blackbird".
The legendary voice may be slightly lower and huskier after all these years but the magic is still there.! Petula also shows her flair for French with no less than Charles Aznavour writing the words to music written by her!
Not many know that Petula was the first British pop singer to become a huge star in France and the first British female to sell a million in the USA ,win a Grammy and top the American charts twice!
Producer and co-composer of some of the songs John Owen Williams has to be congratulated on getting the best out of Petula and with his team encouraging her to explore new genres of music which are every bit as contemporary as any of the current female singers around today! Lead single "Sacrifice My Heart" sums up this album - fresh and contemporary. Her voice has aged so beautifully and suits the style of the songs performed.
