5.0 out of 5 stars Sultry singer at her romantic best 19 Dec 2003
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This coupling of two outstanding albums full of quality love songs is everything that Julie London's fans would expect.
The first half of the twofer, the Calendar girl album, has a song for each month of the year, counting a year as thirteen months. The liner notes say that about half the songs are standards. In fact, I only recognized four of the songs as standards, these being June in January, I'll remember April, Sleigh ride in July and September in the rain. I believe the other songs are all originals but if any of them are covers, they are obscure and therefore cannot be described as standards. Nevertheless, I found these songs immensely enjoyable and it is quite likely that some of them would have become standards had they been written ten years earlier. Particularly noteworthy is Warm December, which is not about Christmas but sometimes gets included on Christmas compilations.
The second half of the twofer, the Your number please album, is a tribute to various men and contains another excellent selection of love songs. The men are Frank Sinatra (Learning the blues), Johnny Mercer (One for my baby), Four freshmen (It's a blue world), Nat King Cole (When I fall in love), Fred Astaire (They can't take that away from me), Gene Harris (Love is here to stay), Dick Haymes (The more I see you), Bing Crosby (It could happen to you), Mel Torme (A stranger in town), Eddie Cantor (Making whoopee), Bob Hope (Two sleepy people) and Matt Dennis (Angel eyes). Julie's recordings of these songs are every bit as good as you would expect them to be.
There are several twofers of Julie's music available as I write this, all of them brilliant. Even so, this is certainly one of the best of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Contains one of Julie London's best recordings 12 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
As with many of these "two original LPs on one CD" deals, you get one fantastic recording and one rather lacklustre effort. In this case it is "Your Number Please" that shines as one of Julie London's most accomplished recordings, making the rather dull "Calendar Girl" fade even further by comparison. That said, "Your Number Please" is such a wonderful recording that the CD is a must have. She may have made her name singing against a minimal guitar backing on "Cry Me A River", but the sumptuous strings and orchestral arrangements here prove a perfect foil for Julie's smoky vocals, and the song selection is inspired.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julie London with Pete King and Andre Previn 20 Sep 2012
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Julie London: Calendar Girl & Your Number Please

Calendar Girl was a rather gimmicky LP with 12 delightful and provocative photos of Julie on the cover and 13 (yes 13!) tracks for each month of the year with an added track called `The thirteenth month' for good measure. Some of the tunes are well-known, like `June in January', `Memphis in June', `I'll remember April' and `September in the rain'. Others I met for the first time with this record. The arrangements of the tunes were by Pete King who directed the orchestra.

Much as I liked hearing (and seeing) Julie all through the year, the real attraction for me in this CD was the second LP transfer - Julie London accompanied by an orchestra arranged and conducted by Andre Previn. There were no unfamiliar tracks here. Most of the tunes are standards, like Victor Young's `When I fall in love', the Gershwins' `Love is here to stay', and `It's a blue world' by Kismet and Song of Norway composer-arrangers George Forrest and Robert Wright. But there are also a couple of tunes that don't find their way onto every other LP - like Mel Torme's `A stranger in town'. Julie's singing is at its sultry best and the arrangements by Previn - and by King - are often quite original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb combo of two of Miss London's finest albums 5 Jun 2002
By Andrew Hampp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was first turned on to Julie London's amazingly sultry voice through the Ultra Lounge collection, then later when I bought a three -CD box set on a whim that, although does a great job of highlighting her prolific career, skips many of her greatest performances, many of them captured on this must-have disc for any fan of Julie's or for good old-fashioned standards bathed in strings ("Your Number Please...") or vamped up or nearly whispered, depending on the song ("Calendar Girl.") The set has many highlights, and the first half, "Calendar Girl," has plenty of outstanding original songs, some of which surpass a few standards. Among my faves are "June in January," "February Brings the Rain," and "November Twilight" from "Calendar," and fantastic Andre Previn-conducted renditions of "It Could Happen to You," "They Can't Take Thay Away From Me," and "Love Is Here to Stay" on "Number," although really the whole thing is top-notch. Many of these songs have been performed hundreds of times by some of the most legendary of artists, but no one could make them as sexy and intimate as Julie does on this disc. It warms up any winter evening but plays just as nicely on a hot summer porch. Perfection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Your Number Please by Miss London is breathtaking... 4 Aug 2000
By Aaron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Julie London sings with strings, and an orchestra arranged and conducted by Andre Previn, this moody album's highlights include the ultimate version of Makin Whoopee, and a breathtaking beautiful version of "When I Fall In Love." London sounds inspired and in a romantic mood, never have her velvety vocals sounded so delicious. An added extra is Calendar Girl another 50's LP is included on this two lp's on one CD, Calendar Girl is a concept album with a song for each month of the year, cute huh..., the price of the cd is worth it alone for Your Number Please and the cover art work for Calender Girl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just pull your heartstrings right on out! 18 Dec 1999
By "capncw" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
WARNING! Do Not Listen To This CD Alone! Julie's voice, recorded here, in analog, at the height of the "Hi-Fi" years gets all the way inside your emotions. "Love is here to stay" and "The More I see you" sound like they are whispered right next to your ear. Some of her best work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two fascinating albums 20 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Julie's Liberty albums are unlike those by any other artist right from the unforgettable covers to the jazz-pop music inside--very hip, very knowledgeable of obscure but worthwhile songs, always tasty, always hip. "Calendar Girl" clocked in at under 30 minutes, even with "The Thirteenth Month" and they knew it but how to improve on perfection? "November Twilight" alone is worth the whole album. "Your Number Please," a tribute to boy singers, nestles in gorgeous arrangments by Andre Previn replete with cocktail touches brushed with classical flourishes. Wow. Julie never met a song she couldn't seduce or a song she couldn't make sound better. Now if only someone/anyone would get the fantastic "About The Blues" on C.D. in real stereo!
