LOVE ON THE ROCKS is one of Julie's greatest albums. Backed by
the lush orchestra of Pete King, Julie does wonders with "Guess
Who I Saw Today", "Where Did the Gentleman Go?" and others. This
should have been on CD years ago. JULIE is an excellent album
which features her with Jimmy Rowles. Thanks to EMI for getting
this one out to us.

Julie London had her critics and plenty of them, not only among those who didn't like her style of music, but also among those who think that plenty of other people could do better. Sure, Julie's voice had its limitations, but Julie knew that and invariably recorded material that showed her voice to best advantage. As a consequence, her album were filled with romantic ballads and those presented in this twofer are no exception. Julie's music changed through the years, with the very sparse backing of her early albums giving way to a more substantial orchestral backing, but Julie's sultry voice was always the dominant instrument throughout. The contrast in musical backing is illustrated here, with the first album, Julie, dating from 1957 and the second, Love on the rocks, dating from 1963. There's a further contrast provided by the moods of the respective album, with the first album being mainly upbeat and the second album being all about heartbreak. Although some of the songs will be very familiar to fans of the Great American Songbook, there are plenty of less famous songs including at least one original song on each album from the pen of Julie's husband and record producer, Bobby Troup.

The first album opens with Somebody loves me, from a 1924 Broadway musical. Two instrumental versions (Paul Whiteman, Ray Miller) were enormously popular that year, while two vocal versions (Marion Harris, Cliff Edwards) were successful in 1925. Another popular song from the twenties featured here is Bye bye blackbird., which was originally successful for Gene Austin in 1926.

I've now got all her albums. In my view she was terribly underrated. Though her vocals couldn't stretch to varying octaves, she was able to inject a rich warmth and seductiveness with 'feel' for the lyrics she sang. And that's the most important element for any song - interpretation; she had it in spades.

A very enjoyable collection of 'standards', some of which can be described as coming from 'the great American songbook'. Julie London is a very good singer, and the arrangements have a jazzy feel, but would be enjoyed by most people I think.
