ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This fantastic 4-CD set is the eighth Judy Garland set released by JSP Records (see the other releases below).  This time, the focus is on Judy's duets ranging including radio, movie, and studio recordings.  This is THE definitive "Garland Duets" CD set.  Judy sings with 33 partners, including Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Mickey Rooney, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Johnny Mercer, Dick Haymes, Bob Hope, Al Jolson, Sophie Tucker, Fanny Brice, and many others.

This set features 15 performances making their CD debut, including:
     "Good Morning" - with Mickey Rooney from the radio show "Screen Guild Theater" version of Babes In Arms.
     "For Me And My Gal" - with Gene Kelly from the "Screen Guild Players" radio version of For Me And My Gal.
     "You Tell Me Your Dream (And I'll Tell You Mine)" - with Bing Crosby from the "G.I. Journal #41" radio show.
     "The Day After Forever" - with Dick Haymes from the radio show "Everything For The Boys."
     "Embraceable You" - with Frank Sinatra from "The Frank Sinatra Radio Show."
     "Snooky Ookums" - with Fred Astaire from "The Gulf Screen Theater" radio version of Easter Parade.
     "You're Just In Love" - with Vic Damone from the radio show "Hollywood Party."

What's also wonderful about this set is that many of the tracks included, while having been on CD before, have never been properly remastered until now.  Those previous CD releases (most from the 1990s) were poor copies of aged records and tapes.
