Found Vinyl: Claudine Longet - Colours

"Colours" is the 1968 album from French pop/folk singer and actress Claudine Longet.  Longet was popular in the 60's and 70's, releasing a handful of albums (featuring a lot of cover material), but disappeared from the limelight after she was convicted of criminally negligent homicide in the murder of her then boyfriend, Olympic skier Spider Sabich.  Salacious affairs and murder aside, Claudine sings lovely, wistful little pop-folk tunes to while away the hours to...working in a garden or something.  Take a listen to the Randy Newman assisted (on piano) "I Think it's Gonna Rain Today" below.

And here's "Am I Blue?" below.

And finally, the title track (a Donovan cover).
