"Caterina Valente was the first international girl pop star and has much in common with the yé-yé girls of the '60s, Francoise Hardy, Brigitte Bardot, Sylvie Vartan and Anna Karina currently so beloved in Japan and in underground European pop circles. Her vocal range was often compared to that of Yma Sumac and it was her distinctive voice, allied with great charm and intelligence, which brought her immediate commercial success, and this compilation of her brilliant early work includes the three million selling hits 'The Breeze and I,' 'Malaguenña' and 'Love Paris.' This compilation has serious export potential to Europe, Japan and Australia where she toured extensively and was consistently successful. She was so successful in Germany she is often mistakenly thought to be a German singer. In the '60s and '70s Caterina recorded four albums with her second husband, the gifted British jazz pianist Roy Budd."
