Judy sings Arlen

Newly restored Judy Garland ‘A Star is Born’ outtake to be released in Harold Arlen set  Judy Garland Sings Harold Arlen, a 45-track CD set containing music from the movies, records and live performances, will be released in early 2016, reports Garland historian Lawrence Schulman. Featured will be “the world premiere release of a newly-discovered A Star Is Born pre-recording,” according to a news release. The recording comes from a lacquer playback disc of the Arlen/Ira Gershwin song, Lose That Long Face. “The newly discovered A Star Is Born prerecording is a real event,” Schulman said in an email to the Miami Herald. “After my discovery of the 1935 Decca tests and the 1960 Paris concert by Garland, this is my third greatest discovery. It isn’t every day one discovers an unknown piece of this legendary and ill-fated film.”
