5.0 out of 5 stars Julie Steams Up My Glasses! July 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Unheralded, Julie London is one of the great female singers of our time. She belongs to a pre-rock, lounge culture that's gratefully been revived She's underrated because she doesn't possess the obvious, Wow-Look-At-Me-I'm-Singing pipes that make every record from Barbra Steisand, Celine Dion and other nerve-shattering divas so annoying. She also wasn't helped by the corny TV show "Emergency" in the 1970s, produced by ex-husband Jack Webb. But she's one sexy broad and her "molten mezzo," described by Bill Ballance on her first record in 1955, only got steamier in the '60s, when she made her best records for the Liberty label. Her vocals slide across every track like the hot kiss of a streetwalker. This compilation pretty well covers her 14-year recording career. I particularly like her straight pop recordings like "Wives And Lovers" and "Girl Talk." There's also plenty of racy insinuations on tunes like "House" and "Black Coffee" and "Making Whoopee." Julie always had a sly, tongue-in-cheek quality and with her smoky reading of "Mickey Mouse March" we're finally let in on the joke. My only problem with this CD is the lousy cover art. Vinyl collectors prize any Julie London album for the great, sophisticated art direction. Capitol Records has done an exemplary job with its Ultra-Lounge series, but I find the look of the Wild, Cool, & Swingin' series pretty weak. You'll never get tired listening to this CD, though. BUY BUY BUY!

5.0 out of 5 stars give that gal a spotlight !!! May 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Ultra-Lounge: Wild, Cool & Swingin' - Artist Series Vol 5 features wonderful songs and ballads performed by the great Julie London. Julie could sing out a tune so well that she could make you ecstatic or break your heart--she was that talented and that good. The sound quality is excellent and the artwork is nicely done although I've seen better renderings of Julie London. However, the music is what we're after and that's very good throughout!

"Come On-A My House" gets a fine jazzy treatment from Julie London who sings this with a much slower tempo than I'm used to--what a steamy rendition from the great Julie London! Her voice is as clear as a bell and that's excellent. "My Heart Belongs To Daddy" always makes me smile with its playfulness and the lush musical arrangement impresses me every time I hear it. Great! "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" features a very elegant musical arrangement with its percussion and piano; Julie gets the fine musical accompaniment that she deserves and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" is truly a major highlight of this album. Julie sings this without a superfluous note, too! In addition, "Makin' Whoopee" never sounded better than when Julie did this rendition--Eddie Cantor, watch out! "Makin' Whoopee" gets the full treatment from Julie who aces this tune effortlessly. Was it because it was easy to sing? Nope; we know better than that--Julie has incredible talent here and that's what makes it seem so easy when we know it really wasn't.

"Black Coffee" shines like new when Julie London sings it so sweetly; and that horn solo sounds so good! "Blues In The Night" by Harold Arlen gets a fine interpretation from Julie London who delivers this flawlessly. Great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Never really out of date, these songs and this singer... February 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I began to explore "Grown-ups music" ...in 1957. Julie London was not the top-rated "diva" of that era, but she certainly was the most sensuous...The performances are indeed sexy and great. Alas, in this compliation, the cover art is cartoonish and inappropriate. This is probably not the best Julie collection still available, but it ain't bad. There are 22 cuts, and at least half of them are wonderful. The other half are either a bit dull or a bit silly, but still listenable. The CD is certainly worth the price if you like adult women singing sophisticated material in a dreamy, low-key jazzy lounge style...My favorites: "You'd be so Nice to Come Home to"; "Makin' Whoopee";"Blues in the Night"; "You and the Night and the Music"; "Go Slow", and "Love for Sale." Julie London even makes the famous Mickey Mouse Club theme an exercise in arousal. If you like Sinatra's work in the "lonely or unrequited love" genre, you will also dig Julie's. I think "Wild, Cool & Swingin'" to be a bit misleading as a title...the overall tone of this collection is a bit more subdued...but that's not bad. The subtitle "The Artist Collection" is more right on...Julie was an artist. There is a great website devoted to her...find it with a Google search. And buy this one before it goes out of print.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice package January 9, 2000
By Spike
Format:Audio CD
Although not as stunning as the now out of print Julie is Her Name/Volume 2 on Liberty/EMI, this is a nice presentation of her her post 1957 work. There's a lot more orchestra tracks, fine for those who like that sort of thing, and few of the intimate two piece combo arrangements (featuring the sublime Barney Kessel) that characterized her first two LP's. Still, it's a cracking good listen, with You And The Night And The Music, Nightlife, and Nice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast. If you don't want to spring for the individual albums, most of which are available, this is a fine compilation
