Offered for sale is an original red vinyl Japanese test pressing of the 1968 LP Softly! by Julie London, including the original obi.

This album has the same cover as the U.S. release Easy Does It, but mostly has different material.

About this copy:  This copy of Softly! is a 1968 Japanese pressing on the Liberty label, pressed on “Everclean” red vinyl.

The cover is VG++ with slight ring wear on the front cover lamination.

The obi is VG+ with a few wrinkles, but no tears.  The “hojyuhyo” (reorder tag) is still attached.

The plastic-lined white sleeve used for promotional copies is included. The lyric insert is missing.

The red vinyl test pressing disc is M- on side one, and VG++ on side two, with a couple of very faint scuffs.  There are no spindle marks on the labels; the record may be unplayed.  Clean disc!

A beautiful copy of a very rare Julie London LP.

Background: Released in 1968 in Japan, Softly! is a bit of an odd album.   It has the same cover as the U.S. Easy Does It LP, but it has different track listings.

  • April In Paris
  • When I Grow Too Old To Dream
  • The Man I Love
  • I’ve Got A Crush On You
