Best Sir,

Bob
Would you consider this reissue a highly recommended purchase? With the new Canton's in the room I've been getting heavily into voice. Intimate, immediate and "in the room" type recordings. Does this Julie London release fit that bill?

I realized I posted that info and picture awhile back -- but it's the wrong album cover/issue. I inadvertently thought they changed the cover because the original issued in 1955 was a bit risqué for the era; but, no, that wasn't the case. Same title but officially known as Volume II. The Volume II by AP @ 200g/45rpm is probably just as sweet and luscious but I haven't heard it.

The one I meant to recommend is this one. Any mint Liberty pressing or especially remastered Boxcar by Bernie Grundman is so lovely. It is a mono recording but you'd be hard pressed to find fault with it.

This Boxstar Records release has been mastered from the original Liberty full-track Mono Analog Master. Remastered by Bernie Grundman on his all-tube disc cutting system, and pressed at Record Technologies, Inc. this 45rpm/2 disc set represent the finest audiophile high quality 180 gram vinyl available. It contains notes by multi-Grammy awards Stan Cornyn, along with a current remembrance from Arthur Hamilton, a lifelong friend of Ms. London, and the composer of the standard, CRY ME A RIVER."
