Offered for sale is a scarce stereo copy of Julie London’s 1955 debut LP, Julie Is Her Name.
Julie London may best be remembered today for her roles on television in the 1970s, but from 1955 through 1969 she cut nearly 30 albums for Liberty Records, most with alluring cheesecake covers. Don’t be fooled by the covers, though – these are great recordings, especially her early work recorded with jazz ensembles. Her debut LP, Julie is Her Name, featured Barney Kessell on guitar as well as her biggest hit, Cry Me a River.
While this LP was first issued in 1955 on the green Liberty label, it wasn’t released in stereo until 1960 on the multicolor label used at the time. The stereo pressings of this album are rechanneled stereo.

About this copy: The copy offered for sale has a M- record that looks as if it hasn’t been played at all. The cover is VG, with some wear on the front and the edges, but no seam splits. The name and address of a previous owner has been stamped on the back cover. The original Liberty inner sleeve is included.
A beautiful still copy of a terrific record that’s quite hard to find in stereo.
