ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This is one of the rarest of all of Garland's Decca albums. Very hard to find these days. This album had a limited release during the holiday season of 1942.

The two Garland recordings can be found on the 1994 MCA (Decca) CD boxed set "Judy Garland - The Complete Decca Masters (plus)". Both were performed with husband David Rose's Orchestra. Rose also provided the orchestra for Tony Martin's recordings, made on the same day as Judy's recordings. Although they didn't sing together here, Judy and Tony had previously worked together in MGM's 1941 musical Ziegfeld Girl.

Special thanks to Rutcherd B. for providing the details regarding The King's Men & Tony Martin's recordings.
