Editorial Reviews

Depending on your age and point of view, you will view this, Julie’s last LP for the Liberty label, as a "Golden Throats"-style camp classic or a soft pop gem. But it’s actually both; for as weird as it may sound for the sultry, intimate vocal stylings of Ms. London to tackle such fare as ‘Louie Louie’ and ‘Light My Fire’, she really does pull it off! Of course, this was one of those harebrained schemes by late-’60s record executives to increase her sales by having her tackle "the now sound," but arranger Tommy Oliver and Julie—who could have been insulted by having to sing the title track alone—bring an adult sophistication to even the cheesiest of fare. As a result, record collectors of ’60s lounge music have a very, very special place in their hearts for this 1969 album, and we proudly reissue it here on CD with original art and new liner notes. Another one-of-a-kind Collectors’ Choice Music exclusive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yummy, Indeed! July 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Recorded in 1969, this album is touted as Julie's lounge classic and it doesn't disappoint. Her vocals (ever so sexy/sultry) and the arrangements are in top form. All tracks are standouts, but my faves are Like to Get to Know You, Hushabye Mountain (from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), the Mighty Quinn, Stoned Soul Picnic and the title track. It's difficult to believe Julie had only one big hit (Cry Me A River), although she recorded over 30 albums and reportedly they most all sold well. Anyhoo, this is a must, order yours today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Julie London lights my fire--THANK YOU, JULIE LONDON !!! September 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Julie London, one of the most enchanting songbirds ever, performs magnificently on this sought-after disc with its cover songs that really shine as Julie sings them faultlessly! Julie is in excellent form on this album and it's great for her fans as well as anyone who enjoys classic easy listening. The quality of the sound on this CD is excellent and the artwork is in very good taste.

The album's track set starts with Julie singing "Stoned Soul Picnic" to perfection--and beyond! Her excellent diction enhances her performance all the more and I'm very impressed. The musical arrangement makes good use of the strings, percussion and that flute is just right! "(I'd) Like to Get to Know You" charms me with its natural beauty; Julie puts her own stamp on this ballad by making subtle changes to the keys and the tempo--wow, what a wonderful cover Julie does of this tune! Now THIS is wonderful easy listening/lounge music by one of the best ever. "Light My Fire," by The Doors, shines brighter than silver and gold in Ms. London's capable hands; her voice adds a romantic feeling to this number that makes this excellent "make-out" music.

"It's Nice to Be with You" boasts a stunning musical arrangement that fits perfectly with Julie's vocals; overall this song is just wonderful. "Sunday Mornin'" features Julie London squarely front and center; and she makes it seem so easy, too. Of course, we know it really wasn't all that easy; Julie's talent always carried her through. "Hushabye Mountain" from "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" gets the royal treatment from Julie London who delivers this without ever skipping a beat; and the musicians never even try to steal the show from Julie--she remains completely in the spotlight which is right where she belongs!

5.0 out of 5 stars YUMMY! August 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD
When I originally read about this album in the early 90's (in Re/Search # 15 Incredibly Strange Music, Vol. II), it was talked about in a kind of 'jokey' manner. Not disrespectful (I hate saying that), but, it wasn't looked at seriously.

This was before the internet, so, I had to track down a copy - of the ALBUM (no mp3's, and you couldn't get most good things on CD, yet).

That took some time, but, when I did, and I put the needle on it, I was DUMBSTRUCK.

This album is AMAZING!

Without a drop of jokiness, I said to myself (re: Louie, Louie) it sounded like proto-trance music. The opening, with that piano/Moog combination, and, then the slow drum-line that goes throughout the track - it was hypnotic.

Then, I heard LIght My Fire, and I was just gobsmacked.

THis is DEFINITELY a 'Julie London' album, but, Ms. London (and her producer) worked on shaping an album that blended pop and jazz.

I read on YouTube (someone talking about Light My FIre) that Jim Morrison LOVED Peggy Lee. Hearing that, I think he would love Julie's cover.

I don't know if Ms. London took this album seriously, but, she was a consummate professional, and every track is performed with that professionalism. She gives her all.

I'm laughing a bit as I write this, because I jus finished reading Son Of Flintstone's review ('...Before Donna Summer's "Love to Love You..."), and, I totally agree with him. This album IS '34 minutes of sex.'

And, it's GREAT!

Like good sex, it's also got fun, and, I give Ms. London and the musicians, and the producer, engineer kudos for this.

And remember this: Ms. London - who looks SENSATIONAL on the cover - was over 40 years old.

I was just listening to this album again (The Collector's Choice CD reissue, one of those oldies obscurities that astounds me: It Got REISSUED?!? ETHEL MERMAN'S DISCO ALBUM GOT REISSUED?!?). I discovered this on vinyl years ago, went through two copies upgrading the condition in my quest for, well odd stuff. But first....

As a vinyl junkie, after a while of crate digging and trying to get past semi-intelligent old guys in dusty rusty fans trying to convince you that their thrift shop records' rejects are worth some kind of "book value" while you're getting first call in folks' garages and storage sheds, you pick up that some artists' records, which OUGHT to be available buried in storage sometimes in mint condition, just AREN'T: Patsy Cline's Lps on Decca (nope; always '70s MCA el cheapos), Buck Owens' early Capitol albums before BEST OF BUCK OWENS T/ST 2105, Rolling Stones' '60s great Lps (always beat to s*** and unusable condition), well, you get the picture. And those GREAT, GREAT Julie London Liberty Lps. Never available in really nice condition; what show up are just one short step away from landfill condition. Never available. Why? ... No one who has them will part with them. They're too good. Out goes billions upon billions of '60s Andy Williams, Sinatra, Martin, Martino, Nabors, Campbell (WICHITA LINEMAN must've had its own pressing plant in '68), Conniff,...again, you get the picture. But no minty stereo 1963 Buck Owens, no minty Julie London albums (OMG Those Covers!)....

As a kitsch work, this is beautiful on soooo many levels. Heard straight, it's a masterpiece. Everything that can go wrong, song choices, a too-druggy funky orchestra, a voice that breathes Mrs. Robinson trying to seduce a young man. And it works. Beautifully!
