Always thrilled by her "Nice girls don't stay for breakfast"...

Brew

"All of those email writers also said they were fans of singer Julie London, who was married to Troup." ... a fact which caused numerous pangs of jealousy among men who were "leaving the room as soon as Bobby started to sing."

That's what a very good friend of mine (a record seller) has told me when I seriously wanted to order the original Capitol LP "Bobby Troup!" ... He of course didn't have it in stock, and I had to get it on eBay.

Julie is phrasing like a horn player; and the little duet with Don Bagley is priceless (it can be found in color at YT too).

Omar Ridder

A charming woman by all accounts, she was a neighbor of my aunt in Encino and was much loved by her neighbors. Interesting fact; she was married to Jack Webb prior to Mr. Troup.

Barbara Ireland

Loved this blog and video clip Marc! Julie London is one of my faves too (as are Troup's songs), and the phrase I use to describe her is 'pheromone jazz.' It is power and elegance and sublety and eroticism all mixed together to create music sublime!

Richard Salvucci

Ah, you're smitten Marc. But who wouldn't be? Can I suggest that part of what made Troup and London work were the wonderful stylings of a very young Dennis Budimir on guitar? Also a member of the Wrecking Crew, and too little appreciated.

Ray Accardi

Great Show!!!!

Brian McMillen

She's intoxicating.

Dennis Budimir

to Richard Salvucci: Thanx so much Richard for your very nice compliments!
