"Any reissue of a reissue of a reissue needs to add to the canon. This is a new version of the BoxStar edition in 2009, but as that was a truly spectacular release, how could it possibly be bettered? God knows what magic Bernie Grundman managed in remastering this from the original 1955 tapes, but it's even more open and detailed. The brilliance of this mono LP is that its minimalism — just Ms. London backed by Barney Kessel on guitar and Ray Leatherwood on bass — needs no directional component to up its presentation. You'll soon forget it's mono. 'Cry Me A River,' 'Can't Help Lovin' That Man' and ten more from the huskiest, sexiest voice... ever." Sound Quality: 90% — Ken Kessler, Hi Fi News, June 2019
It's back. Our 45 RPM, 2LP version of the great Julie London debut on Liberty Records. Mastered by Bernie Grundman on his all-tube cutting system and now plated and pressed at Quality Record Pressings. This 45 RPM spreads the 12 tracks over two LPs for even better cartridge tracking and superior sound quality!
Much like Dean Martin's 1954 debut LP (Dean Martin Sings), Julie London's recording career started on the silver screen in the 1940s. In 1955 she made her debut LP on the newly formed Liberty Records. Recorded in August of that same year, in state-of-the-art mono sound, Julie Is Her Name is regarded by jazz buffs and '50s pop enthusiasts as a genuine classic! This LP features the hit single "Cry Me A River" and her stellar performances of "I Should Care" and "No Moon At All."
Supported by the legendary Barney Kessel on guitar and Ray Leatherwood on bass, this LP release brings back memories of the cool '50s. Whether you were a cool swinger in the '50s or you're a cool hi-fi lovin' swinger today, you will be transported to a time when a 15" coaxial speaker, a 20 watt amplifier and a girl who looks like Julie were all that mattered.
