This two-disc set, generous at 50 tracks, is probably the most comprehensive Julie London anthology available. While certainly no match for her more technically accomplished contemporaries, London was a fine, appealing singer who used her cool, understated alto to excellent advantage.
London is best known for her signature song "Cry Me a River," and that's here, of course, but her sultry take on standards like "When I Fall in Love," "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," and "Body and Soul" are nothing to scoff at. While some of her later recordings can suffer from excessive orchestration, London's vocal stylings are always on point, as the wealth of material on this EMI collection proves.
This is more than just a compilation. My husband and I have been collecting music for years and Julie London is one of our favorites. We have several of her LPs and CDs and we were hesitant about getting this one even with the 5-star reviews. We had so much already,but there are a few songs,that have been hard to come by so reluctantly we ordered it and we are so glad we did. The songs are so beautifully arranged and sound so completely different from what we own. There is such a richness to the recordings and you feel like you are hearing her, really hearing her for the first time. We were so totally pleased by our purchase my husband said I had to write our own review. This is Julie at her best and we thank her and EMI-Capitol for bringing it to us
