    You left out Free and Easy from “Julie.” Mancini/Troup, maybe Bobby just wrote the lyrics. Found this page looking for a Troup songbook, he wrote some cool tunes.

      Hey KLR,

      Thanks for the tip! I’ve added the Julie London recording of “Free and Easy” from the 1957 album Julie to this page, and will add a Bobby Troup recording of the song to the Bobby Troup sings Troup page. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you find any others I’ve missed. The help is much appreciated.

      Most sites credit the song to Mancini and Troup without specifying who wrote what. The lone site I’ve found that indicates that Mancini wrote the music and Troup wrote the lyric is dbopm.com, which oddly enough gives the copyright year as 1959.
