JSP Records is proud to announce the release on August 4, 2017 of Judy Garland: CLASSIC DUETS, a 4-CD 109-track set produced by John Stedman that will include 15 tracks never previously issued on CD. Entirely remastered by the renowned U.K. audio restorer Peter Reynolds, with the cover and brochure designed by the distinguished graphic artist Raphael Geroni, it will contain essays by the award-winning Garland historian Lawrence Schulman, who has written extensively about her in the ARSC Journal; journalist Randy Henderson, who has contributed to the magazine The Garland Gazette, Emmy Magazine, and the webzine Garlands For Judy; Randy L. Schmidt, who is the author of Judy Garland on Judy Garland: Interviews and Encounters (Chicago Review Press, 2014) and edited and wrote the foreword for Judy and I: My Life with Judy Garland by Sid Luft (Chicago Review Press, 2017); and French singer Isabelle Georges, whose CD and show devoted to Garland, called Une étoile et moi, met universal acclaim.

The set, which was compiled by Schulman, will contain duets Garland sang with 33 partners, including such illustrious names as Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Mickey Rooney, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Johnny Mercer, Dick Haymes, Bob Hope, Al Jolson, Sophie Tucker, Fanny Brice, and others. Past JSP sets devoted to Garland, all curated by Schulman, include Lost Tracks (2010), Smilin' Through - The Singles Collection 1936-1947 (2011), The Carnegie Hall Concert (2012), Creations 1929-1962 Songs She Introduced (2013), The Garland Variations (2014), The Best of Lost Tracks (2015), and Judy Garland Sings Harold Arlen (2016).
