In this stunning new collection-London Calling...A Toast To Julie London-listeners will discover a side of singer Lyn Stanley that they haven't heard before. The 17 tunes on this recording explore phases of romance from first glance, in "Blue Moon," to a missed chance, in "Cry Me a River." Most of the wide-ranging material presented here was originally recorded by singer/actress Julie London, along with a couple of offerings that Stanley feels would have been perfect for the sultry songstress, such as "It's Impossible," and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine."

With her distinctive sound and approach, Lyn Stanley brings to mind a method actor, mining the stories and feelings in each tune and getting to the heart of the lyrics. Striving for sensitivity, Stanley stays true to these stories and portrays the experiences of people engaged in the dance of romance.
