Very cool work from Claudine Longet
– a record that really has her stretching out a bit from the 60s – moving into some more sophisticated, adult styles that are totally great! The set's still got the same fragile sweetness of her previous albums – thanks to Claudine
's trademark vocals – but there's also a slightly different feel to the backings, which are handled by Dann Lottermoser in a style that's nicely compressed on the bottom, and spaced out a bit more to the sides – all with great effects on Longet
's voice! The titles are well-chosen too – with some more personal, maturing rock selections that come off quite well. Titles include "Birds", "When I Loved Him", "God Only Knows", "That's No Way to Say Goodbye", "Jealous Guy", "Sleep Song", "While You're Sleeping", and "Wake Up To Me Gentle".
