One of the best, compilation albums
to be released in the 1970's. Most of the songs appear
here on LP for the first time.
Although this is only one disc, the cover is a "gatefold" which
opens up to reveal what would become the cover and back
cover of the re-release in 1982.
The first 4 are the only tracks
from the Decca years, the rest being Judy's four sides for
from the soundtrack of Judy's only animated film "Gay
"Little Drops Of Rain" from "Gay Purr-ee" would become one
of Judy's favorites songs. She would later sing it as a Christmas ballad
on her TV Series in 1963.
