I Know a Place is an album release by Petula Clark, which in the USA (her second on Warner Bros.) charted at #42. In the UK, the album was released as The New Petula Clark Album, a name which was dropped during later re-releases to prevent confusion among record-buyers.[2]

Arranged and produced by Tony Hatch, the album followed on the release of Clark's "I Know a Place" hit single and yielded another UK hit with "You're the One". The latter song was a Top Ten hit in the US for the Vogues and another song introduced by Clark on this album: "Call Me", was reached the US Top 30 via a cover by Chris Montez.

Another album cut: "Strangers and Lovers", is noteworthy as the song Helen Reddy chose to compete with in the televised talent show she won in 1965, her victory marking her move from Australia to the US.[3]

"The In Crowd" was also recorded in 1965 by Dobie Gray, whose version charted in the top-twenty in the U.S. and top-thirty in the U.K.
