ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This is the extremely rare original 1943 Brunswick (United Kingdom) 78 release with the slip cover intact. The two songs featured are: "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart" (A Side) and "I'm Just Wild About Harry" (B Side).

"I'm Just Wild About Harry" remained unreleased in the United States until 1984 when it was included on the MCA Records LP "Judy Garland - From The Decca Vaults" - even though the song was recorded on July 29, 1939!

On July 29, 1939 Judy cut three sides for Decca: "Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart", "Fascinating Rhythm" and "I'm Just Wild About Harry". All were rejected for release at the time. Then, during the famous "Petrillo" recording musician's strike of 1943, Decca released these cuts as "new". Only "Zing!" and "Fascinating Rhythm" were released in the United States, while "Zing!" and "I'm Just Wild About Harry" were released on Decca's Brunswick label in the United Kingdom. This made "Harry" a very rare record even in 1943. Today, it's probably THE rarest of all Garland records. Collectors continue searching for this record but copies are seldom, if ever, found.

Along with the 1984 LP release, these songs can be found on the 1994 CD boxed set "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)", as well as various other CD compilations featured here in The Judy Garland Online Discography.
