Judy Garland – Smilin’ Through – The Singles Collection 1936-1947 – 4CD
This 4-disc deluxe set is the first-ever complete anthology of Judy's singles at Decca Records that includes all her master takes and known alternates. Seven alternate tracks make their CD debut here.
Until now, some alternate takes were only available on the 1984 LP "From The Decca Vaults." Some others were mistakenly presented as the "A" takes when released by Decca on LP. In 1994, MCA Records released "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)" that was missing several of these alternates. Additionally, the sound quality on many of the tracks on that set was sub-par to what had previously been released on CD.
On this 2011 JSP release, all of the recordings have been gloriously remastered by Peter Rynston, making it the very best (and complete) compilation of Judy's Decca singles to date. A definite "must have."
Note: The two surviving test records Judy cut for Decca in 1935 ("Bill" and a medley of "On The Good Ship Lolipop/The Object of My Affection/Dinah") are not included as they were not recorded as "singles" and were rejected by Decca. Both recordings can be found on the 2010 JSP Records release "Judy Garland - Lost Tracks."
SPECIAL NOTE: After this set went into production, the International Bing Crosby Club came out with the revelation that there is a C take of “Mine” plus a “B” take of “Yah-Ta-Ta,” both duets with Bing Crosby. This new JSP set already includes the extra T take of “Yah-Ta-Ta” but the fact that there are two more alternate takes is wonderful news! It’s also puzzling that none of the Garland “experts” out there was aware of these alternates – until now.
Per the CD set’s compiler and annotator, Lawrence Schulman: ”I have just today [August 6, 2011] discovered the existence of an additional alternate of “Yah-Ta-Ta, Yah-Ta-Ta (Talk, Talk, Talk) and one of “Mine.” Since these discoveries were made after the preparation of Judy Garland: Smilin’ Through – The Singles Collection 1936-1947, they are obviously not included in the new JSP set. As much as it is regrettable that the new release is thus not a complete Garland at Decca, I think it is best to rejoice in the discovery of two hidden tracks. I think as much as I am disappointed that I was not able to include these newly discovered tracks (at least to me), I am also happy that new discoveries continue to be made. I hope there will be many more.”
