Judy Garland (1922-1969) adored London. It was there that audiences welcomed her in 1951 after she left Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1950, and there that she died. The four and only times she ever did studio recordings in London – 1957, 1960, 1962, and 1964 – were during her Capitol Records tenure from 1955 to1965. In London in 1957 to appear at the Dominion Theatre, Garland recorded “It’s Lovely to Be Back in London” as a give-away single for those attending opening night. After a bout of hepatitis in late 1959, Garland did a side for the Colpix film Pepe called “The Far Away Part of Town,” recorded the LP That’s Entertainment for Capitol, then flew to London where between August 2 and 9 she recorded twenty tracks for Capitol that were intended as a musical biography. Garland returned to London in mid-1962 to do what turned out to be her last film, I Could Go On Singing, for which she recorded several tracks. Finally, her 1964 recordings, her last studio session for the label, consist of four tunes from the Lionel Bart West End musical Maggie May. All done at Abbey Road, these EMI/Capitol recordings are regrouped in First Hand Records’ new 2-CD set. These are not, however, all of Garland’s London sides. As the title states, all the First Hand tracks are studio dates, thus excluding one track Garland performed live on-camera in I Could Go On Singing, as well as her redubs for the now-infamous Palladium shows from 1964 with daughter Liza Minnelli. Also excluded are several alternates that have been released over the past decade. One alternate was even vetoed by the Garland Estate.
