ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:Label

Judy was a fan of composer Lionel Bart ("Olilver!"), and while she was in London in 1964 she agreed to record these four songs from his latest show "Maggie May".

This particular release is very rare, and is labeled "Audition Record Not For Sale". Not quite sure what Judy and/or Lionel was "auditioning" as I think we can all agree Judy was past the "audition phase" at this point in her career!! :)

These were Judy Garland's last studio recordings for records, although she would pre-record some material for later TV appearances.

These were officially released in 1964 on the Capitol/EMI 7" 45rpm extended play single "Judy Garland Sings Lionel Bart's Maggie May".

These songs were never officially released in the United States until the wonderful 2002 2-CD compilation "Classic Judy Garland - The Capitol Years: 1955 - 1965". However, the version of "There's Only One Union" on this CD is different than the 1964 singles release.

Some of the songs were previously released by on the following CDs:
1990: The Pastel Productions bootleg CD included "The Land Of Promises".
1995: The EMI CD "The Best Of Judy Garland" included "Maggie May" & "It's Yourself" - "It's Yourself" in stereo.
1999: The EMI CD "Legends Of The 20th Century" inluded "Maggie May".
A booleg version was released in the U.S. in the 1970's, but we have no information on it.
All four songs were also included in the 1982 EMI Spanish LP "Con Plumas Judy Garland".
