Four-Disc Set "Judy Garland – The Lost Tracks" Will Get U.K. Release

By Adam Hetrick23 Jun 2010 Released By JSP Records 8/2

June 22 marked the 41st anniversary of the death of Judy Garland, the late entertainer who captivated fans on stage and screen. U.K. record label JSP commemorated the date by announcing a four-disc collection of never-before-released recordings from Garland's early career.
The collection of songs — some of which feature a 12-year-old Garland's 1935 Decca studio tests — spans the years 1929-1959. "Judy Garland – The Lost Tracks" boasts 100 songs, 55 of which have never been previously released.
JSP will first release the collection in the U.K. Aug. 2, with a planned U.S. release in the future, according to representatives. All of the songs in "The Lost Tracks" have been remastered.
Notable inclusions are some of the earliest surviving recordings of the Gumm Sisters performing together, as well as a young Garland singing "Bill" and "On the Good Ship Lollipop/The Object of My Affection/Dinah" with her mother accompanying on the piano. The latter tracks were rejected by Decca in 1935 and thought to be lost until discovered in a trash heap outside Garland's vacated home in 1960.
