Julie London • Julie is her Name, Vols 1 & 2

Although she's now in her senior citizen years, listen to Julie London's stunning 1955 debut, and you'll still think she's one of the hottest creatures on two legs. "The girl with the come hither voice" is how the original liner notes described it, and London's sultry vocals simply oozed it. With the first track--which became her first single--London's legend was etched in stone. "Cry Me a River" became one of the greatest torch songs of all-time, and while it's been reinterpreted over the last 40 years by everyone from Streisand to Joe Cocker, the song forever belongs to London. The other standards here--from the likes of Irving Berlin, Kern & Hammerstein, and the Gershwins--are nothing to slouch at, and one listen to her version of "I'm in the Mood for Love," and you just may be, too. She's semi-famous for being the ex-Mrs. Jack (Dragnet) Webb and, later, Mrs. Bobby ("Route 66") Troup--but genuinely forever famous for this LP. Female lounge singers have been trying to sound just like her ever since. -- Bill Holdship
