5.0 out of 5 stars Chasing Rainbows, 24 Jan 2012
This review is from: Smilin' Through: The Singles Collection 1936 - 1947 (Audio CD)
This set covers Judy's recordings for Decca Records, made during the time she was signed to MGM films and made all those classic musicals.

Though on the early tracks she is young, she shows immeasurable talent. I kid you not, Judy is one fine vocalist, and this set proves it. She sings and swings with the best of them. The best tracks are too numerous to mentions, obviously Over the Rainbow and Have yourself a merry little Christmas are two, and so many great standards that she herself introduced.

ALL her original Decca releases are here, with some outtakes thrown in too, though I would have put them at the end and left the rest in their chronological order.

Why should you by this set? First, it has all her Decca recordings. Second, it's cheap. And third, compared to other releases of her Decca stuff, the sound quality/remastering is unbelievable. No hiss, no dull quietness. It's amazing they were able to get the masters, some from the 30s, to sound so amazing. Hats off to all involved!

If you like good singing, traditional pop and jazz, then I can highly recommend this set to you.
