JSP RECORDS TO RELEASE NEW JUDY GARLAND SET IN 2013
LONDON, February 18 — The British label JSP Records will release a box set of Judy Garland recordings in 2013 titled CREATIONS 1936-1962 – SONGS SHE SANG FIRST. The goal of the release is to include tunes Judy Garland was the first to perform. Lawrence Schulman, who was behind such other Garland sets as Child of Hollywood (RPCD, 1993), Judy Garland at the Paris Olympia (Europe 1, 1994), Classiques et inédits (Frémeaux & Associés, 2008), Lost Tracks (JSP, 2010), Smilin’ Through (JSP, 2011), and The Carnegie Hall Concert (JSP, 2012) will compile and annotate the entirely remastered set. Will Friedwald (author of A Biographical Guide to the Great Jazz and Pop Singers; Stardust Melodies; and Sinatra! The Song Is You: A Singer’s Art), John Meyer (author of Heartbreaker; and Operation Ruby Slipper), and Christopher Finch (author of Rainbow: The Stormy Life of Judy Garland; The Art of Walt Disney: From Mickey Mouse to the Magic Kingdoms, and Beyond; and Chuck Close: Life) will contribute essays to the brochure. Peter Rynston of Tall Order Mastering will be in charge of remastering, and Andrew Aitken will design the set. John Stedman, head of JSP Records, will produce.
