Why You Will Want to Read This

1. Julie was an original vocal stylist. While most other jazz artists of the time were singing in a big band style, Julie's intimate vocal phrasing, and sparse arrangements created a unique, and emotionally impacting connection between artist and audience. The secret to success as a vocal artist is this connection which you can learn through reading this bio.

2. Julie uniquely balanced her private personal life of raising 7 children and yet maintaining a career in recording, performance, tv and modeling. Obviously no easy task.

3. Julie was the master of the concept album. Recording artists looking for tips on how to be successful in marketing must read this book.

For the past five years I have operated the julielondon.org web site. The site collects everything in the public domain about this lovely singer-actress. Author Jim Spencer called me several month back, asking to use content from my site for his upcoming book. I said sure. He's pulled lots of good Julie London information from the site.

I think Jim's book and my website compliment one another well. In 1494 abbot Johannes Trithemius of the Benedictine monastery in Sponheim, Germany was in the illuminated manuscript business, with his abbey full of monks. Fearing the coming revolution from the new-fangled movable type developed by Gutenberg, he wrote a book that translates as, In Praise of Scribes, which tried to stave off the collapse of the hand-written book monopoly. Interestingly, he had his book printed with movable type so EVERYBODY could read it. Lady Liberty and julielondon.org are not a direct analogy, but one medium can be used to support the other.

Web site or Lady Liberty? The correct answer for you may be both. First of all if you weren't a bibliophile, you wouldn't be reading this on Amazon.com now would you. Lady Liberty is a handsome addition to your collection. It's easy to find information and leaf through the 300 color pages. The book has information you won't find elsewhere. The web site can have more information such as mp3 files to listen to Julie's music and videos of her performing as well. I add new material weekly, so the internet has a more dynamic component which a printed book is not going to have.

Some people such, as my wife for one, would never read an ebook in her life, yet she has no trouble reading all sorts news online. To get at information on the web site, you have to `dig' through several pages to get to your objective. That takes time and some effort.

Jim's a musician and the focus of his attention clearly is the musical and recording aspects of Julie's body of work. The author has done a wonderful job of organizing Julie's music so you can easily find the information you want. It is a very attractive coffee table book and a joy to look through.

Having owned a printing company for over 20 years, I know what books like this can cost and Lady Liberty is priced as a bargain. The project clearly represents a labor of love on both our parts. I think you will enjoy the end result.
