FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LONDON, January 12, 2011 — JSP Records will release in late 2011 a box set of CDs to be called The Complete Judy Garland at Decca Records 1936-1947 that will include all her known master takes, alternates and outtakes. John Stedman will produce the entirely remastered set, and Lawrence Schulman will compile it and write the sleeve notes.
You might recall that JSP Records was responsible for the hugely successful “Lost Tracks” 4 CD set. According to Worlds Records (the main U.S. distributor of the set), it was their #1 catalog item for 2010. Plus JSP is set to go into a second pressing of the set due to its popularity and of course, huge sales.
This new Decca set will be the first time that all of Judy’s Decca recordings, including all of the alternates, will be released. The 1994 “The Complete Decca Masters – Plus” was wonderful but did not include all of the alternates. Technology has advanced so much in the past 17 years that a newly restored, comprehensive set of all of Judy’s Decca recordings is long overdue.
Now, if we could only get Capitol Records to do the same!
Details to follow as they come in… 🙂
