Background: Released in 1964, In Person at the Americana was the first live album by Julie London.
The album did not chart.
Cut at the Royal Box of the Americana Hotel in New York City, this LP might as well have come from Las Vegas, since it was a glitzy affair that surrounded the star with a big band and a bevy of backup singers. She borrowed from Judy Garland for “The Trolley Song” (a number largely taken over by the choral accompaniment) and “The Man That Got Away,” while her husband Bobby Troup provided his 1941 hit “Daddy” and 1948’s “Baby, Baby All the Time,” the latter in a medley with “Basin Street Blues” and “St. Louis Woman.” London was at her best in the sexy, playful “Daddy,” which brought out her personality.
