ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Orchestrated and conducted by Gordon Jenkins, "Alone" was Judy's first and best "conceptual" album. All of the songs reflect the album's title of being "alone". As does the artwork. Original newspaper advertisement

This album is quite a departure for Judy, who shows her versatility as a vocalist by performing very bluesy and jazz infused numbers. If you ever want to show people that Judy Garland sang more than just "show tunes", this is the album to play.

The 1989 premiere CD release contains a bonus track of "Then You've Never Been Blue" recorded on March 6, 1957. The CD quickly went out of print and became a hot collector's item until the 2002 re-issue coupled with "Judy In Love".

Subsequent Releases:
* 33RPM; World Record Club (U.K. - 1957) #TP-154, as "Alone With Judy Garland"
* 33RPM; Capitol EAP-835 7" 45rpm "Extended Play" set (1957)
* 33RPM; Capitol SM-11763 (1978) (Abridged version missing "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues")
* Capitol CD #CDP-7-92346-2 (6/20/1989)
