GARLAND STORY Vol. 2
THE HOLLYWOOD YEARS!
EMI Records (UK)
THE DISC & RECORDINGS:
This is the UK version of the 1962 follow-up to "The
Judy Garland Story - The Star Years" released
the previous year. This is the first
time MGM Records
pre-soundtrack album performances, taken directly
from the film soundtracks. What is interesting
is that they chose two more outtakes, including
the premier release of one of Judy's Annie
Get Your Gun (1950) prerecordings from
1949 ("You Can't Get A Man With A Gun").
The liner notes are again written by Robert
Senior Editor, "Show." He mistakenly
notes Judy's performance of "Bei Mir Bist Du
Schoen" as being in the film, and not the outtake
that it really is.
The packaging for this UK version is a single sleeve, and not in the more deluxe gatefold format as its US counterpart. The cover photo is again
of Judy post-MGM, obviously M-G-M Records was capitalizing
renaissance of the early 1960's by trying to appeal to the
public's then-current image of her.
