After recording the Reed/Mason composition "The Last Waltz" for her 1967 album The Other Man's Grass Is Always Greener Clark had rendered that song as "La derniere valse" for release in France to serve as the follow-up to her #1 hit "C'est Ma Chanson." The success of "La derniere valse," which reached #2 in France in January 1968, encouraged Clark to record an original Reed/Mason composition: "Kiss Me Goodbye" in a session at Pye Studios in Marble Arch produced by Tony Hatch although the arranging/conducting duties were assigned Les Reed who played piano; the track also featured Big Jim Sullivan on guitar.
Hatch also produced the B-side: "I've Got Love Going For Me," a composition by Clark herself, with Hatch's assistant Johnny Harris as arranger/conductor. However, despite being showcased on Clark's 2 April 1968 Petula NBC-TV special, "Kiss Me Goodbye" would rise no higher than #15 — although the track was ranked as high as #12 in Cash Box and #10 in Record World) — and would mark Clark's final appearance in the Top 30 of the Billboard Hot 100 where the follow-up "Don't Give Up" would peak at #37.
Released in February 1968, "Kiss Me Goodbye" rose swiftly up the Billboard Hot 100 to enter the Top 20 at #16 on the chart dated 23 March 1968 representing a considerable comeback for Clark whose last two U. ("Don't Give Up" would peak at respectively #27 and #23 in Cash Box and Record World: in all three trades it would be Clark's last Top 40 hit.) The Billboard magazine review of the single stated: "Miss Clark has another 'This is My Song' in this beautiful ballad, penned, arranged, and conducted by Les Reed.
