Second Souvenir Album



ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Decca released this second album of Garland songs during a music industry strike. The President of the American Federation of Musicians, James Petrillo, announced a ban on their members making any recordings when the union's existing contract with the recording industry expired on August 1, 1942. Luckily for Decca, they had several unreleased Garland tracks to choose from, including the 1939 recordings of "Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart" and "Fascinating Rhythm".

When listening to the tracks on this album in the order they're presented, it's interesting to hear the more adult Garland segue to the younger, more youthful sounding 1939 Garland.

Decca would be the first to settle with the union in late 1943. By that time, Judy had signed another contract to record another 12 sides for the label, which would result in the second Garland "Cast Album", this time for her final co-starring role with Mickey Rooney, Girl Crazy (MGM 1943).

All of these songs are included in the 1994 CD boxed set "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)."
