Liberty Records was pleasantly surprised when Julie London’s debut album was such a big hit. Julie Is Her Name did contain the hit single “Cry Me a River,” but each featured mellow jazz guitar and bass backing — which was considered commercial suicide in 1955. So, instead of changing direction and recording the follow-up Lonely Girl with a full orchestra, Liberty wisely allowed London to strip the accompaniment down even more on the album by dropping the backing down to one instrument. Lone guitarist Al Viola plays gentle Spanish-tinged acoustic behind the hushed vocalist, and it suits London perfectly.
