By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 9 Sept. 2002
Format: Audio CD
The late, great, June Christy was the ultimate stylist. June had her limitations, but worked within them to great effect. She was at her best on the soft, romantic numbers, but she was well capable of picking up the tempo when required. June always allowed her musicians their share of the glory - there are nice instrumental breaks here and there, but ultimately it is June's voice that is important.
These albums do not represent June's artistic peak (The Misty Miss Christy and Something Cool are generally regarded as her two best, though opinions are divided between them) but the two albums which make up this CD are of an extremely high quality. Most singers never come close to recording albums of this quality, never mind those other two.
What you have here (as the two titles suggest) are two albums which are inspired by, and ideal as a background for, those warm summer nights - but you can play them at other times of the year when you want to dream about summer.
If you are already familiar with June's music, this twofer will make a wonderful addition to your collection. If not, this is a great place to start - but whether you start here, or with another of June's albums, you may end up buying several of June's albums, just as I did, and you'll wonder why it took you so long to buy that first one.

I always remember June Christy as a blonde sophisticated lady who sings melancholy, romantic love songs that are very unusual with difficult melodies. She didn't have the prettiest voice in the world but she has got a style. Her voice is languid, warm and intimate. Her phrasing is faultless.

Although her most famous album is "Something Cool". June Christy said that she never liked that album. She felt that it was too popular. She prefers singing obscure songs and she has got an ear for difficult tune (for instance, listen to "Interlude" on this album, only Miss Christy could do justice).

"Gone for the day" is one of my favourite albums by her. I love it more than the second part of the CD: "June, Fair and Warmer" album. It's such a bargain for this lush, romantic album.

My ultimate favourite tracks in the album: Milton Raskin & Andre Previn's song "Lost in a Summer Night". The strings and flute composition and vocal arrangments are so sumptuous and melancholy in this track. Her voice grows on you. I don't think I'll ever get tired of listening to Gone for the day album.

I'd highly recommend June Christy's vintage album, "Ballads for Night People/Intimate Miss Christy".

We have two LP transfers on this CD to give us 24 lovely tracks of June Christy accompanied by the Pete Rugolo Orchestra, recorded in June and July 1957. Together with Misty Miss Christy and Something Cool, this is one of my favourite June Christy CDs. There are so many lovely tunes, beautifully sung by June and excitingly arranged by Pete Rugolo. Many songs are familiar from other albums - `When the world was young', `Imagination', Frank Loesser's `I've never been in love before', Irving Berlin's `The best thing for you', Warren & Gordon's `I know why', Arlen & Koehler's `When the sun comes out'. But as usual on June Christy LPs (CDs) there are many tunes that on first hearing were unfamiliar to me, like Alex Wilder's `It's so peaceful in the country'; Pete Rugolo's `Interlude' to which Bob Russell put words; Henry Nemo's `When you awake', and several others. This is a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining CD, vocally and orchestrally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just one tune gets this one 5 stars 18 Jan. 2009
By Rocky Mountain Jazz Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
June Christy was another of the fine female vocalists who cut her chops in the Swing Era--then went on to make her mark as a solo performer. Christy's start was all the more challenging because she did not start out in one of the "sweeter" swing bands, but rather in the very "progressive," more "jazzy" band of Stan Kenton. She and her immediate predecessor in the Kenton band, Anita O'Day, both went on to lead the "cool" genre of female solo jazz vocalists in the 1950's. The influence of Kenton's unusual and haunting arrangements and orchestrations would color both singers' styles for their entire careers.

On this album, June Christy is accompanied by no less than Pete Rugolo, the arranger extraordinaire of the Kenton band during its most productive and innovative period. The studio recordings here offer Rugolo the chance to arrange for a full orchestra--expanding his palette from the limited instruments of a traveling band. This provides a sterling showcase for Ms. Christy--along with a nice selection of both better and lesser-known tunes.

Christy, though of limited vocal range, combined a down-home girl-next-door appearance with a very "hip" vocal delivery and a cool smolder of emotion that would captivate just about any listener--especially the male ones. She uses this to great effect in this album, but--as I said at the beginning--one tune takes this album from just-plain-good to "must-have": it is the haunting Pete Rugolo tune written for the Kenton band, "Interlude." As originally written for Kenton, it was scored for piano and trombones. Here it is given a somewhat haunting lyric, and is scored for Ms. Christy and mostly strings by its composer, no less. Alternating from melodic to dissonant, happy to sad, "Interlude" is no easy technical feat to sing. Christy is more than up to the challenge, and sings it with the great, but "cool" emotion that was so her trademark. In a full handful of tunes like precious stones, "Interlude" is a diamond. It is also one of the few (if any) vocal renditions of this relatively seldom-recorded tune. This album is all good, but "Interlude" reaches the level of "magical."

5.0 out of 5 stars June At Her Very Best!!! 19 Aug. 2014
By HMG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I remember buying Gone For The Day from a record club in 1957.I was only 15 years old at the time. I am so glad to have this again after all these years. I have listened to the CD 5 times already this week. It is still one of my favorites of all time. I think it is June Christy at her very best. I love When The World Was Young,When You Awake, Love Turns Winter To Spring, Oh hell I love every song on this GREAT ALBUM. If you don't have it give it a listen I am sure you will love it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUNE AT THE TOWER 26 Sept. 2015
By Michael Palermo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
June is in fine voice. Pete Rugolo and Bob Cooper provide the unusually adventurous arrangements. The sound is great making you remember what great sound Capitol had. Two lp's on one disc so it's a good bargain too.
5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Afternoon...morning and night! 3 Jun. 2014
By Jan R. Schulman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
June Christy is just lovely on this album. Her husky voice lends itself so perfectly to all of the songs on this album. When she sings "It's a Lovely Afternoon," she makes iit lovely and you just want to spend it with her. I have to admit that "something cool" is my favorite JC album but this is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon/
