Judy Garland Story


ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:
Inside jacket
In 1943, about seven years or so after she made her first motion picture for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Judy Garland quietly slipped out of endearing little girl roles to put on the mask of young leading woman. Hardly anyone noticed the transition. Nevertheless, she immediately began to serve notice that she could and would carry any vehicle virtually single-handed, and that co-starred or not, it would be Judy Garland alone who would be best-remembered by the movie audience.

This opening paragraph to the liner notes on this album written by Robert Kotlowitz, Senior Editor, "Show", best describes the theme of this album. All of the tracks are "adult" Garland solos from M-G-M Records albums. It would be another year before M-G-M Records would begin releasing Judy's solos from the pre-soundtrack album era.

This compilation is nicely packaged in the "gate-fold" style, with a nice collage of photos, including a photo from Judy's non-singing role in The Clock (1945). Oddly enough, the facing photo on the other side of the inside of the album is a promotional photo from Judy's 1954, post-MGM, Warner Bros. film A Star Is Born. The cover photo is Judy in concert, obviously M-G-M Records was capitalizing on Judy's career renaissance of the early 1960's by trying to appeal to the public's then-current image of her.

The track listing here is identical to 1954's 10 inch LP release: If You Feel Like Singing.

An abridged version of this album on 45rpm "Extended Play" was also released. Click Here to see it.
