https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXg6UB9Qk0o Was looking into her career some time back, was news to me that this was one of her hits. Well, I am not that old. So found youtube of this and was mesmerized by the performance when I first saw it. Ca. 1964. So I have been looking for a nice condx. Liberty pressing of this album and guess what nice ones are still selling preeety well $$$ on the bay. Ouch.

One of the comments on YouTube said she had a voice so husky it could pull a dog sled. This is one of Julie's biggest hits and she's accompanied by her husband Bobby Troup and his Quintet. It's safe to say this is the definitive version of that song and probably always will be. She aces it. Here's a performance in color and it comes in tight on her beautiful face and doesn't get too far back.

Fans of the show Emergency (1972-1979) will remember Julie and Bobby as Nurse Dixie McCall and Dr. Joe Early. That's where I first saw her when I was a kid and I had no idea she was a sultry singer from the 1950s and 60s until later. Her album covers are quite the thing.

My favorite Julie London wax, from about 1956;

She also starred in the '58 flick, "Man of the West", with Jimmy Stewart.

I got the Julie LP from ebay yesterday. Mono of course. Don't know if it was originally made in stereo in the studio so I figured avoid a stereo LP as it might be loathsome "simulated" stereo. But now I also ordered a CD of her stuff and I hope that it does not include alot of reprocessed stereo. There were both mono and stereo versions of the LP I guess. While I was at it, I ordered a 50s Sinatra CD reissue. For some reason I am not finding Sinatra LPs in the estate sales or thrifts around here. The LP looked minty but a little crackle. I cleaned it with the ultrasonic but that did not make a huge difference. FIFTIES- I have that mono LP with that song I got at the two buck thrift. That mono LP is what got me to look further on. Very natural sounding vocals from here on that Liberty disc.

Hoo boy. And I got the black label LP and now just got a CD version on EMI. For comparitive purposes of sound quality. So I just ordered the green label original pressing to compare to the other two. The black label is a reissue about maybe 5 years later.
