The Magic of Jackie Trent

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
Songwriting partner (and later, wife) of super-producer Tony Hatch, Jackie Trent earned a big hit single in 1965 when "Where Are You Now (My Love)" famously ousted the Beatles' "Ticket to Ride" from the top of the British charts. Nearly as beautiful a piece of AM pop as Dusty Springfield or Petula Clark ever recorded, the song benefited greatly from Hatch's melodramatic string production and Trent's tortured vocals. Following the single that same year was an LP, The Magic of Jackie Trent, that saw Trent attempting to cement her show-biz bona fides with detours into adult pop -- that sweet spot between Frank Sinatra and Tom Jones. There's only one Trent/Hatch original, a pop ...

All Music Guide - John Bush
Songwriting partner (and later, wife) of super-producer Tony Hatch, Jackie Trent earned a big hit single in 1965 when "Where Are You Now (My Love)" famously ousted the Beatles' "Ticket to Ride" from the top of the British charts. Nearly as beautiful a piece of AM pop as Dusty Springfield or Petula Clark ever recorded, the song benefited greatly from Hatch's melodramatic string production and Trent's tortured vocals. Following the single that same year was an LP, The Magic of Jackie Trent, that saw Trent attempting to cement her show-biz bona fides with detours into adult pop -- that sweet spot between Frank Sinatra and Tom Jones. There's only one Trent/Hatch original, a pop torch song named "Faces." Elsewhere, as great as she sounded on her breakout hit, Trent does less well with material others had made famous; she outdoes the bombast of Tom Jones on "It's Not Unusual" (at a slower tempo, no less) and over-enunciates and over-emotes on Kander & Ebb's "My Colouring Book." The uptempo, flute-led "I Believe in You" would have made a great play for the charts, but nothing else here. [An El compilation of 2007 bookended the original LP with a total of 13 additional tracks, including "Where Are You Now (My Love)," her second hit "When the Summertime Is Over," and highlights from 1968-1969 like "7.10 from Suburbia" and Scott Walker's "Such a Small Love" (a favor returned, since Trent and Hatch had given Walker their own "Joanna" to sing).]
