The Best Of Judy Garland


ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This is a rare Australian 7" 45rpm "Extended Play" version of the American double album.

The cover photograph is from a 1963 session with photographer Milton Greene.

This set was released in "simulated stereo", a process that was very popular at the time (MGM Records used the process in some of their soundtrack reissues). The "simulated stereo" was created by taking mono recordings and adding some echo, and upping the bass on the left channel and upping the treble on the right channel. For me this process was always a little discerning. I had a button on my old receiver that switched the sound to mono, so I would use that button to listen to the "stereo" records.

All of these recordings have since been released on many CD compilations. The most notable being:
1989 MCA (Decca) "Judy Garland - The Best Of The Decca Years Volume One - Hits!" (MCAD-31345).
1992 MCA (Decca) "Judy Garland - Changing My Tune - The Best Of The Decca Years Vol Two" (MCAD-10504)
1994 MCA (Decca) boxed set "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)" (MCAD4/C4-11059/D 207185).
