Julie is her name Volume II
Liberty...7100...7 1/2 ips...2 track...Stereo
But whether it's indentification or subconscious or feeling for the 'little fella', it's undeniably fun. And this was all part of "Julie is her Name". An untried singer with uncompromising musical faith; an unknown record company; sophishcated, tastefully presented material smack in the middle of a roaring rock and roll market; just a bass and guitar- all the ingredients of failure . . . a hundred-to-one shot.
But to get back to the beginning, what a lovely success story. "Julie is her Name" skyrocketed to one of the best selling albums of all time. Julie London rose to the top ten of every list of female vocalists. The satisfying simplicity and quietness of the guitar-bass formula gained happy acceptance in the midst of all the noise, and it has been copied and re-copied.
One's own success is always difficult to top. This is an old show business adage. Perhaps we're overly enthusiastic, but in this case we feel the good is followed by the better "Julie is her Name - Vol. II" has all the sincerity and warmth of "Julie is her Name". The songs have the same tingling nostalgia. Howard Robert's brilliant guitar work and arrangements capture every nuance of every mood. Red Mitchell's impeccable bass work couldn't possibly make a more musicianly marriage. And Julie's singing stature continues to grow and grow.
We hope you'll enjoy this annivesary with us.
