Petula Clark Official Site
One of the very best vocalists of the 1960's was Petula Clark. "Downtown" was her major hit and is still an incredible song. When I took my young daughter and her friends on vacation I had "Downtown" on CD in my jeep. The kids went nuts whenever it came on... Still cool to this day.....
