Julie LONDON - Julie... At Home 1960

Julie LONDON - Julie... At Home 1960
LST 7152


Julie London's sultry, dusky voice pushes all the emotions in this outing with superb arrangements. Especially good are June Christy's hit "Something Cool," "The Thrill is Gone," "Give Me the Simple Life" and "Let There Be Love." London's song selection here is first-rate and she delivers each title without over sentimentalizing, even on Sentimental Journey. If you're collecting London's works, make sure this disc is in your collection.
Julie at home, was actually recorded in her living room, with a very small jazz combo, making it one of Miss London's most intimate sessions, Around midnight is more notable for it's wondeful album cover artwork, however it is a very nice late night session, perhaphs a little overorchestrated but nice and lush. Recomended
I've an awful feeling that
This thought that's been a-stealing
Through my brain
Is not to be ignored

But to really tell the truth
Though I'm not a well known sleuth
I honestly believe
That you are bored

You've changed
That sparkle in your eye is gone
Your smile is just a careless yawn
You're breaking my heart
You've changed

You've changed
You're kisses now are so blasé
You're bored with me in every way
I can't understand
You've changed

You've forgotten the words 'I love you'
Each memory that we've shared
You ignore every star above you
I can't realize you've ever cared

You've changed
You're not the angel I once knew
No need to tell me that we're through
It's all over now
You've changed
