Well it took me a while to remember who Claudine Longet is as I was very young and her music is hard to find today. She has that sweet voice you remember from childhood listening through the door at your parents cocktail parties, seeing her with then hubby Andy William's on his T.V show, or hearing her haunting childlike theme from 'Rosemary's Baby'. She sang in the 60's classic 'The Party', with Peter Sellers, and seemed to represent a certain French waif 60's look, a sweetness and style, unique to her. The standout tracks to me on this great release are 'Meditation', 'A Man and a Woman', a wonderful version of 'The look of Love', 'I love how you love me', 'Love is Blue', 'Everybody's Talkin' from Midnight Cowboy, 'Am I blue?' Let it be me',... I love them all...but the best...the la la la theme song from 'Rosemary's Baby' called 'Sleep safe and warm'. I have wanted that for years! Claudine Longet is simply mesmerizing, she has a way of effortlessly making famous songs her own with her unique interpretation. This is wonderful stuff, so forget your worn out vinyl, Claudine's best is finally on C.D. I can assure you this won't leave the stereo.
