Offered for sale is an original Japanese red vinyl white label promotional copy of Hushabye Mountain, the last studio album by pop singer Julie London, including the original obi.
Hushabye Mountain is the same album as the U.S. Yummy, Yummy, Yummy LP, though the songs are in a different order.
About this copy: This copy of Hushabye Mountain is a 1969 Japanese pressing on the Liberty label.
The cover is VG++ and close to M- with a tiny corner dent and a bit of discoloration from aging on the back.
The obi is M-; the “hojyuhyo” (reorder tag) is still attached. The lyric insert is missing.
The plastic-lined white inner sleeve used for promotional copies is VG with a lot of foxing, but no tears.
The red vinyl white label promo disc is M- aside from a light inaudible mark through “Sunday Morning.” There are no spindle marks on the labels; the record may be unplayed. Clean disc!
A beautiful copy of a very rare (and very good) Julie London LP.
Background: Released in 1969, Yummy, Yummy, Yummy was the twenty ninth and final studio album by Julie London.
The album, which consisted entirely of contemporary pop, did not chart.
Pop standards vocalist/actress Julie London was definitely at a transitional phase in her career when she cut Yummy, Yummy, Yummy (1969) — the final entry in her decade-and-a-half long relationship with Liberty Records. Modern listeners will revel in the obvious kitsch factor of a middle-aged, old-school female who is crooning rock & roll. Rightly so, as the two musical universes rarely collided with a lucrative outcome. However, just below the genre-bending veneer lie interesting interpretations of concurrently well-known selections with the occasional sleeper gem thrown in. The lush and admittedly antiquated orchestration doesn’t mask London’s smoky and smouldering pipes, and some scores definitely work better than others.
