Downtown is an album by Petula Clark (her first album licensed to Warner Brothers Records) following the success of her single of the same title. The album's tracks were all produced, arranged and conducted by Tony Hatch and were recorded at the Pye Studios in Marble Arch with the session personnel including drummer Bobby Graham, guitarist Big Jim Sullivan and the Breakaways vocal group; the "Downtown" track included guitarists Vic Flick and Jimmy Page in addition to Sullivan.
Petula Sally Olwen Clark, CBE (born 15 November 1932) is an English singer, actress, and composer whose career has spanned seven decades.
If he wasn't the mastermind behind Petula Clark's mid-1960s career boom, producer and songwriter Tony Hatch was certainly the catalyst. Associated with her for a decade, he provided the singer with the mid-career opening "Downtown," as well as such follow-up successes as "Call Me," "Color My World," "Don't Sleep in the Subway," "A Sign of the Times," and "I Know a Place," along with a brace of the lesser-known but generally pleasing pop numbers included here: "After You," "Goodbye.
A great budget priced compilation, this mixes most of Clark's biggest hits with some obscure and previously unreleased tracks. Tony Hatch was the oducer who helped create Petula's phenomenal success with many of his tunes, and this album showcases that very particular 60s English sound.
