Julie London - Sings Soft and Sweet

Hi there groovers...

Well, it took the fabulous Julie London to drag Mr Snookles out of retirement. The one lounge Diva that Mrs Snookles is jealous of - and with good reason - what lounge lover could resist those smoky, sultry tones?

Julie recorded 32 albums in a career that began in 1955 with a live performance at the 881 Club in Los Angeles. Billboard named her the most popular female vocalist for 1955, 1956, and 1957. She was the subject of a 1957 Life cover article in which she was quoted as saying, "It's only a thimbleful of a voice, and I have to use it close to the microphone. But it is a kind of oversmoked voice, and it automatically sounds intimate."
