Wild, Cool & Swingin': The Artist Collection
by Julie London
Released: Jun 1999
Label: Capitol Records
Forget the demeaning color-by-numbers cover painting and head straight for the music. Twenty-two cuts of prime London, including such classics as "Daddy," "Girl Talk," and the cool jazz of "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" (which London actually recorded in her living room). The collection leans more on London's lounge side than her depressive torch side, but it's still a winner.
