News Judy Garland's "The Letter" Makes CD Debut March 13 Judy Garland's legendary 1959 album, "The Letter," makes its CD debut March 13 on the DRG Records label.

Produced by Scott Schechter, the recording — which traces a relationship from first meeting to breakup to reconciliation — was digitally remixed and remastered in 24-bit directly from the original session tapes. The CD also includes a lavish booklet with rare artwork as well as liner notes by producer Schechter. "The Letter," according to press notes, "contains narration of a letter written to Garland by her beau, played by acclaimed Academy Award nominee John Ireland. As Judy reads his letter, her thoughts mend with his, and she answers him musically, through ten songs, crafted by Capitol's main musical master, Gordon Jenkins, a beloved musical arranger and conductor, who also worked with Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra."

The complete track listing for "The Letter" follows:

"Beautiful Trouble"
"Love In The Village"
"Charley's Blues"
"The Worst Kind of Man"
"That's All There Is, There Isn't Any More"
"Love In Central Park"
"The Red Balloon"
"The Fight"
"At the Stroke of Midnight"
"Come Back"

The recording also features four bonus tracks: alternate versions of "Beautiful Trouble," "That's All There Is, There Isn't Any More," "The Worst Kind of Man" and "The Red Balloon."
