Instead of reviving her career, 1972's Now turned out to be a last gasp -- Petula Clark didn't have another hit until 1982. Between those two albums, Clark never stopped recording or performing, and she turned out a series of pleasant but unremarkable collections of MOR pop, beginning with Come On Home. Clark tackles several '70s pop standards -- "Killing Me Softly," "Baby, I'm-a Want You," "Everything I Own," "I Can See Clearly Now," "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again," "If You Could Read My Mind," "Without You" -- along with a few country songs and classic pop tunes. While none of her versions are particularly remarkable, none are particularly bad, but only dedicated fans will need to venture down this road.
