ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This is the long awaited CD release of "The Garland Touch", with six bonus tracks.

The original 1962 album was always a favorite of Garland fans, even though the tracks that were taken from the then-unreleased "London Sessions" were a mystery at the time.

This was Judy's final studio album released during her lifetime. Future releases would rely on recordings from her 1963-64 TV series; two concerts (the 1964 palladium concert with Liza and one from her 1967 Palace engagement); and a four-song British EP which was not released in the United States until the 2002 compilation "Classic Judy Garland - The Capitol Years: 1955 - 1965". Although Judy was constantly rumored to be recording new studio albums up until Capitol fired her in 1966 (and even afterwards), no new professional recordings were made other than the exceptions noted above.

The complete "London Sessions" recordings would not be officially released until the 1991 boxed set "The One And Only".
