"Julie London's voice is one of the greatest. Add that she was an actress and a stunningly beautiful bombshell and ask why isn't she better known, even revered. Just listen to this CD and you may revere her too. She was known as having the 'come hither' voice, and there is an intimacy and warmth in her songs that shames countless better known singers. This is a great collection, and I heartily recommend it to anyone who likes the songs from the era of Sinatra, and Dean Martin."
The BEST Julie London Collection, IF YOU CAN FIND IT!

"Here, in three superb discs, you have the VERY BEST of JULIE! Short, Sweet, and Neat! One Box! All her Hits! A Great Low Price! (But, I see, sadly, no longer in print!)
If you are unable to locate or obtain a copy of this set, by all means, DO go for the double album "The Wonderful World Of/The End of The World" from EMI, which contains many of the songs here on this box set.
Certainly, one of the finest singers of all time, Julie London belongs on your shelves of music, if you truly love great ballads and love songs...NOBODY (even including Peggy Lee) had the "Come Hither and Listen to Me" that Julie had. After all these years, and all these hearings, I still fall, willingly, under her spell, time and time again...what a Great Entertainer she was. If you can, get yourself a copy of this set, you will be forever glad you did! Enjoy! ~operabruin"
