Julie London
Lonely Girl

  (Item #: londolonel_1708) 

Our Price: $349.99

  • A Knockout of Female Voice and Guitar: Triple Plus (A+++) on the first side mated to a seriously good Double Plus (A++) side two
  • Julie is in the room with you - intimate, breathy and Tubey Magical like practically nothing you've ever heard
  • For late night listening this is surely one of the best Sultry Female Vocal recordings ever made - you won't believe it
  • "Lone guitarist Al Viola plays gentle Spanish-tinged acoustic behind the hushed vocalist, and it suits London perfectly. While the singer was often chided for her beauty and lack of range, she deftly navigates these ballads without any rhythmic underpinnings to fall back on. London's intense focus on phrasing and lyrics recalls Chet Baker's equally telescopic approach."
