In my years here, it seems that men are far more likely to accept and like Claudine's records than women. I, too, enjoy them, with this track being a favorite. I also really like her work on Roger Nichols' songs.Claudine Longet as a vocalist. I think her 5 A&M LPs are top-notch efforts
Good. Then Harry you’ll appreciate this anecdote.it seems that men are far more likely to accept and like Claudine's records than women
Mike, I normally recommended Colours as a good place to start. Ron Elliot (Beau Brummels) contributed the acoustic guitar throughout and Randy Newman duetted with her on his I Think It's Going to Rain Today.Since my usual musical tastes tend to match Harry's when it comes to A&M Records, I probably should give Claudine another listen. Or I should say "a" listen because I've never heard any of her LPs. I've only heard the one song that appeared on Music Box, and now "Wanderlove" from the link above, which is quite appealing.
My only quibble was that these Japanese issues did not include non-LP single recordings (the first three did include the mono mixes, however):
I suppose, but the 50th Anniversary series included several release with adjacent 45s as additional selections (e.g., The Merry-Go-Round, Boyce & Hart, even Nick De Caro), so I was getting spoiled... Besides at $25 a crack, adding little extra umph ain't a bad idea .I would agree with that. I'm one who only likes bonus tracks on bonus media. I want albums on CD to exactly reflect what the album had originally, down to liner notes, logos, labels, innersleeves, etc.
Agreed.What I don't like are demos or redundant alternate takes.
