Super Hot Stamper

Julie London
Calendar Girl

  (Item #: londocalen_1902) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • This Julie London 1956 Classic makes its Hot Stamper debut with outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Both of these mono sides have plenty of Tubey Magic - they're fuller, more musical and more natural than most any other copy we played
  • Julie's voice sounds particularly nice on this copy - intimate, rich and warm, just as the way we like her to sound
  • 4 stars: "Calendar Girl is a fun, if often bittersweet, ride and a must-have for fans of classic vocal pop and lounge music."

Super Hot Stamper

Julie London
Julie... At Home

  (Item #: londojulie_at_home_1901) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • This mono Liberty pressing from 1960 was one of the better copies from our recent shootout with Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish
  • Julie is in the room with you, and it's not just because this pressing is so good - the album was actually recorded in her own living room!
  • John Kraus (Julie Is Her Name) engineered brilliantly once again, and the wonderfully relaxed Al Viola is back on guitar
  • 4 Stars: "Julie...At Home finds the vocalist comfortably in front of a small jazz combo highlighted by vibraphonist Emil Richards and guitarist Al Viola. The sessions seem relaxed and casual, often with the lyrics slyly slipping from London's lips, at once sophisticated and sensual."

Super Hot Stamper

Julie London
Julie

  (Item #: londojulie_1901) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This outstanding vintage Liberty stereo pressing boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER from start to finish
  • Both sides have in-the-room presence, preternaturally breathy vocals, and boatloads of wonderful old-time Tubey Magic
  • This is an amazing sleeper of a record that belongs right up at the top of Ms London's oeuvre (25 albums strong!) along with Julie Is Her Name - high praise indeed
  • "Usually put into a torch song setting, this release allows London to shed that garment and become jazzy. Instead of being sultry, she becomes dazzling and sparkling. She also becomes more adept at phrasing and timing and takes a risk or two in the tradition of a jazz singer. "

Super Hot Stamper

Julie London
Make Love To Me

  (Item #: londomakel_1811) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This outstanding original Liberty Turquoise mono pressing boasts solid Double Plus (A++) grades, or close to them, on both sides
  • Thanks to superb engineering and vintage All Tube mastering, this 1957 LP is wonderfully rich and sweet, with a breathy, intimate Julie London performing live in your listening room
  • It's also pressed on unusually quiet vinyl - Mint Minus Minus, with no issues to speak of - they don't come quieter
  • "Julie London's concise and melodic versions of standards were quite popular during the latter half of the 1950s. Her subtle sensuality and lightly swinging style made for a potent combination."

Julie London - Julie

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: londojulie_7004_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Stunning Julie London sound! We are constantly picking up Julie London records, whatever we can find, in the hopes that we'll stumble upon one that sounds like this. Usually we aren't so lucky, but man is this one something! If you love jazzy female vocal records, you're going to flip out over this pressing.

Julie London - Julie Is Her Name, Vol. 2

Our Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: londojulie_is_2_2017) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

The notes I took during this shootout lay out just how impressed I was with the sound of this remarkable copy:

Wide stereo. Big Bass. Swingin'. Just the right amount of reverb. Tonal perfection. The stereo kills the mono (on this album, on the copies we played anyway).

Julie London - Julie Is Her Name

A Boxstar Bomb

  (Item #: londojulieis_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame pressing from Cisco / Impex / Boxstar.

One question: Where's the Tubey Magic?

We would never have pointed you in the direction of this awful Boxstar 45 of Julie Is Her Name, cut by Bernie Grundman, supposedly on tube equipment. I regret to say that we actually sold some copies, but in my defense I can honestly and truthfully claim that we never wrote a single nice thing about the sound of the record. That has to count for something, right?

Julie London - Julie Is Her Name

What a Record!

  (Item #: londojulieis_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

We award this copy's side one our very special Four Plus A++++ grade, which is strictly limited to pressings (really, individual sides of pressings) that take a given recording to a level we've never experienced before and had no idea could even exist. We estimate that about one per cent of the Hot Stamper pressings we come across in our shootouts earn this grade. You can't get much more rare than that.

Julie London - Julie Is Her Name

What to Listen For

  (Item #: londojulieis_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on what you should be listening for when critically evaluating your copy (or ours) of the album.

On side one listen to how rich the bottom end is on Barney Kessel's guitar. The Tubey Magic on this side is off the charts. Some copies can be dry, but that is clearly not a problem on this one. The naturalness of the presentation puts this album right at the top of best sounding female vocal albums of all time.

Julie London - Julie... At Home

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: londojulie_at_home_2018) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

If you're a fan of intimate female vocals - the kind without a trace of digital reverb - you should get quite a kick out of Julie... At Home. And unless I miss my guess you'll be the first and only person on your block to own it! (That's not a bad thing considering the average person's taste in music.)
