Judy Room Spotlight on Easter Parade Section

Easter Parade


ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This is probably one of the worst bootleg CDs to come out in a long time. The tracks are obviously ripped from the original Rhino CD version. And if that isn't enough, most of Judy's best numbers are left out, while the company kept many background scoring tracks. Among the missing are: "A Couple Of Swells"; "Mr. Monotony"; "It Only Happens When I Dance With You" (Judy's solo and the dance reprise); and "Better Luck Next Time"!

Definitely a CD to NOT purchase!

Academy Award Winner: 1948 Best Scoring of a Musical Picture (Johnny Green & Roger Edens)
