By the time Petula Clark released Now in 1972, she was past her prime, but she wasn't content to sit still. So, Clark attempted a full-fledged comeback with Now, working with a new set of arrangers and picking a strong set of songs. If the musical results were strictly pleasant soft-rock and MOR pop, at least it was well-crafted and well-sung, and it was a stronger collection than its immediate predecessors. And, with two songs -- "My Guy" and "Wedding Song (There Is Love)" -- becoming minor hit singles, it proved that Clark's voice was still engaging and that she could still make enjoyable mainstream pop.
