ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This French double-album from 1985 is an add compilation of film, radio, and television performances by famous Hollywood stars. All of Judy's numbers are from her T.V. Series except "Maybe It's Because" which is from her 1949 radio appearance on "The Bing Crosby Show". Because of this, we have put this album in the "Television" section. All of the dates listed for Judy's T.V. performances are incorrect, listing them as coming from 1958! To make matters worse, several of the song titles are incorrect. For those that we know the real title, we have put that title in brackets [].

The sound quality is horrendous. The speed on several of the tracks seems to be off a bit, either too slow or too fast. This is too bad, as the gatefold packaging for this double album is nicely done. Inside is a repeat of the photo seen above (from Judy's 1941 film Ziegfeld Girl), along with the popular shot of Judy and Gene Kelly with their arms stretched out singing "Be A Clown" from The Pirate (1948), plus a photo of Joan Crawford and Fred Astaire from MGM's 1933 film Dancing Lady.

Medley: Who Stole The Jam? - You Can't Have Everything - In Old Chicago (Alice Faye)

* Probably a 1938 radio performance. Faye sang "Who Stole The Jam" in 1938's Sally, Irene &

"Medley of Film Songs": One Million Kisses - There's A Lull In My Life - Good Night My Love

* Again, probably a 1938 radio performance. There is no record of Faye singing "One Million Kisses" in any film but she did sing "This Year's Kisses" in 1937's On The Avenue. Faye sang "There's A Lull In My Life" in 1937's Wake Up And Live, and "Good Night My Love" is not a title listed for any film that we can find, it must be listed under a completely different title. 2:12
