Julie London-- "The Good Life"

Jenni Alpert put this on my wall in Facebook.  It gave me a very nice chance to slow down and think of simpler times.  Julie London has such a velvety voice and with the crisp analog studio work of the time all the nuances and snap to her delivery were much appreciated by my aging ears, that have grown so much more patient as time goes by.
 We get so immersed in the music of our times with slight deviations to the outer boundaries just to keep a context.  But, I must admit that the snap and sizzle of singers like Sinatra were not high on my list as a kid, so I've gone back to those sections of time to familiarize myself with special gems here and there.
