Is the super-expanded cd worthwhile? I have only the expanded.

And did the super-expanded one credit the arrangers? I want to know if Skip Martin did "Lose That Long Face" and "Gotta Have Me..."

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Martin did the pre-song combo arrangement of "Man That Got Away" and Heindorf took over the arranging when the famous trombone solo entered.

For sure. I believe the 2004 Legacy release has all the tracks the previous one has, but with improved sound in every case. Then they add much of the background score, which may be mono, but has that full, great Warners sound. Nice booklet and notes too, but no arrangers mentioned.

I have the super expanded and it's definitely a step up from previous versions. There is also an alternate version of Lose That Longface with alternate lyrics that's only available on the Judy Sings Harold Arlen album.

It's not really super expanded, it's just the last re-release from Sony with 26 tracks.

You mean the 2004 release? That's the one I have. With the Columbia pink and yellow LP cover.

But none of the unreleased songs?

And I'm not sure the background score is worth my while. As I recall Heindorf was selling "The Man That Got Away" pretty-danged hard in his writing. Got on my nerves.

Hi, David! As I recall, Heindorf was selling "The Man That Got Away" pretty-danged hard in his writing, and I loved it. It's a great song, after all, and Heindorf was a great arranger. Sorry it didn't work for you, but I hope you enjoyed the rest of the picture.

Yes, I did but I agree with those who think it's got its problems.

At the very least it put a little more JG in the pickle for all time.

Yes, it had its problems -- and its glories -- but I'm afraid I'm unclear about your meaning re: Judy in the eternal pickle...?

"in the pickle" meaning "preserved for all time".

So: at least a little more JG has been preserved for future fans to enjoy.

Thanks. I'd never heard "pickle" used in that expression before, or did you just cleverly coin it? What I have heard is when it's a synonym for trouble, as in, "Oops -- now we are in a pickle!"

I read it in a book, writ by a Brit, so I imagine it is not American.

It's been 17 years since the last release??

Surely they can scrape up some demos of the unreleased songs. They're Harold Arlen songs, fer Kendall's sake!
