Recalls Those Kenton Days — A 1959 album by June Christy of tunes she sang with her days with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, arranged by Pete Rugolo.

The original LP contained five songs per side. The liner notes present June Christy's reaction to the project, quoting her as saying, "This has been absorbing as well as sentimental for all concerned. The originals were, and still are, all top efforts, and it was a real challenge to try to re-do such well-established concepts. I think we succeeded in doing right by them."[1]

The album was re-issued in 2001 as a double-CD together with This is June Christy.
