2003 release. Never mind how many ethereal, bewitchingly songs Claudine Longet recorded, this marvelous French singer has always been remembered for the tabloid-fit events surrounding her personal life. In 1976 she was convicted of "criminally negligent homicide" in the shooting which killed her boyfriend, skiing star Spider Sabitch. Some people remember her marriage to crooner Andy Williams, and most remember her career as an actress -- consisting of a TV series and a co-starring role in a Peter Sellers' movie The Party. But her musical career has remained unfairly obscured through the years, except for connoisseurs of smooth and sophisticated sixties pop. And here's this superb collection to change this! The CD includes all the tracks from her We've Only Just Begun album (except one), all the tracks but three from Let's Spend the Night Together, and six tracks from the Sugar Me rarities album. The 2LP set adds seven tracks not found on the CD. This means that this reissue contains the "richest" moments of her career: covering Neil Young, The Stones, The Beatles, Beach Boys, etc. and her own songs in her own exquisite manner.
