Love From Judy (plus bonus tracks), Original London Cast


Categories: ,


Here at last is the CD release of the British hit musical of 1952/3 – “Love From Judy” starring a host of home grown talent – Jean Carson, June Whitfield, Johnny Brandon, Barbara Windsor etc along with Adelaide Hall and Bill O’Connor.

Adapted from the play “Daddy Long Legs”, it was amazingly fortunate that the ideal Jerusha Abbot (Judy) should have been in the talented person of Jean Carson, who shot to stardom overnight for her delightful interpretation of the orphan who falls in love with her guardian. What is most pleasing is that “Love From Judy” succeeded amongst a crop of fine American musicals playing in London. “Judy” chalked up a very respectable 600 performances in the West End before touring the country, and breaking attendance records at every venue it played. Jean Carson went on to conquer America as Jeannie Carson hosting her own television show, June Whitfield has become an icon through “June and Terry” and “Ab Fab”, and Barbara Windsor is today a household name via her appearances in the “Carry On” films and “Eastenders”.

All tracks have been re-mastered by Sepia and we have searched through archives to find you additional rare tracks that have never appeared on CD, let alone LP. Bonus tracks featured on this CD include recordings by Jean Carson, Johnny Brandon, Adelaide Hall, Eve Boswell, Hermione Gingold, David Hughes, Gary Miller, Gilbert Harding and June Whitfield.
