Yes THE album which single handed launched the Torch Singer genre...and opened the door for every imperfect but sexy vocalist since!
The most remarkable thing about Julie London is remarkable indeed: that she used her erotic persona not so much to interpret songs as to change the nature of them to become something other than when sung by anyone else. She used her breathy, sexy, sultry voice not to sing a version of a song that could compete with someone else's on a scale of good to better to best, but to change it's meaning!
This, her first album from 1955 set out her stall for all time; soft eroticism and single entendre... with sparse accompaniment for a late night groove that has been hard for generations to resist. With Barney Kessel's muted guitar and Ray Leatherwood's subtle bass the only sound apart from Julie's own bedroom whisper... just try to resist!
One of the most erotic albums of all time - sounding even more breathe in your ear than ever with RevOla!
Wonderfully packaged with pics of the sultry Miss London and full on notes! This is a must and no self-respecting collection should be without it
