give Longet's voice the most favorable surroundings possible, so even if her vocalizing on "Close to You" isn't going to make anyone forget either Karen Carpenter or Dusty Springfield, the playing behind her is fine enough that the record is worth hearing, just not necessarily for Longet; and her version of "We've Only Just Begun" isn't half-bad, just. not in a league with what the Carpenters did with the song. And on the more solidly uptempo numbers, such as "Broomstick Cowboy," she is very much worth hearing.
Claudine Longet's velvet and seductive voice plus the formidable musical arrangements make of this album a collector item. I knew about Claudine Longet when I saw her in The party from 1968 with the unique Peter Sellers.

Claudine Longet's long suit was really her album's covers, which made their purchase almost irresistable (at least, to men) once they were displayed in record stores. It all comes off as glittering vocal pop/rock, impeccably played (the CD is almost worth owning just for Joe Osborn's bass work, which is in almost as much sharp relief as Longet's singing).
