ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This deluxe boxed set was typical of the time. Reader's Digest was famous for releasing similar sets for years with a variety of themes such as "Big Bands of the 1940's". These sets came in approximately 1 1/2" thick boxes with an equally thick "sleeve" that held 5 (or more) records inside. The top part of this sleeve would drop down to reveal the track listing. Each individual record was housed in a deluxe plastic-lined sleeve to keep it protected (see image below).

In this case, The Longines Symphonette Society licensed Judy's performances from Capitol to make this set that was available only through mail order. A special single LP entitled "I Could Go On Singing Forever" was sent "free" to those who ordered this box.

All in all this is a nice collection with very nice cover art.

All of the songs are from Judy's Capitol albums. In fact, this set, and the single LP "I Could Go On Singing Forever" were originally released, with the songs in a different order, in the 1968 Capitol boxed-set release "The Magic Of Judy Garland".

All images on this page from the collection of Scott Brogan.

opens up to reveal the main section (shown at left).


Insert

The special box-insert shown above that houses the records has a flap that comes down
to reveal the (slightly off-center) sticker containing the track listing.
Each record is housed in a deluxe sleeve lined with plastic for better protection.
