By Julie London

Very Good Condition

Although she's now in her senior citizen years, listen to Julie London's stunning 1955 debut, and you'll still think she's one of the hottest creatures on two legs. "The girl with the come hither voice" is how the original liner notes described it, and London's sultry vocals simply oozed it. With the first track--which became her first single--London's legend was etched in stone. "Cry Me a River" became one of the greatest torch songs of all-time, and while it's been reinterpreted over the last 40 years by everyone from Streisand to Joe Cocker, the song forever belongs to London. The other standards here--from the likes of Irving Berlin, Kern & Hammerstein, and the Gershwins--are nothing to slouch at, and one listen to her version of "I'm in the Mood for Love," and you just may be, too. She's semi-famous for being the ex-Mrs. Jack (Dragnet) Webb and, later, Mrs. Bobby ("Route 66") Troup--but genuinely forever famous for this LP. Female lounge singers have been trying to sound just like her ever since. --Bill Holdship

A Review:

One of the best from Julie London. Very intimate production with Vol. 1 featuring Barney Kessel and bass (Leatherwood) and Vol 2 with Howard Roberts on guitar. First version of Cry Me A River. 34 tracks in total, great mood music for an intimate evening with loved one. She made many albums, some noted for their covers. Favorite songs include: I'm in the Mood for Love, It Never Entered My Mind, Laura, Gone with the Wind, How Long has this been Going In. Bonus Tracks from Lonely Girl, Julie & Calendar Girl. She is best when she sticks to standards. Married to Bobby Troup who produced some of her albums. Later become film star with Gary Cooper and Robert Mitchum and then played memorable role with husband in Emergency. I have a lot of her albums and it is wonderful to see albums reinvented as cds. Great music and nice to see the 2 albums combined.
