JUDITH is one of the best albums Judy Collins ever made.
Harold
'Judith' is one of those great albums that you listen to and find yourself thinking, "I wish they still made them like this." This CD is a real treasure.
A. Wolverton
The lyrics, the arrangements and the voice combine to create a poetic delight.

"The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress" by Jimmy Webb (Jimmy Webb remains one of the quiet giants of music behind the glitz and glory of others, listen to his contribution to Carly Simon's "Film Noir" for one of Carly's and Jimmy's and popular music's finest moments) begins this journey beneath the gentle mist of a midnight moon with this first and lasting impression. The title alone is brimming with poetry and anticipation. The lyrics mingle with Judy's voice and the orchestral arrangements in the most natural way, giving this song a richness that will linger long after the song concludes. "Angel, Spread Your Wings" has a lighter tempo, a bit ethereal. One is lulled a little further on the journey. "Houses" a song written by Judy, and perhaps one of her best authored pieces (I would compare this song to anyone of John Denver's best songs). "The Lovin' Of The Game" a nice folksy song to sing around the campfire. A slight similarity to "City Of New Orleans" in tempo. "Song For Duke" another song authored by Judy. Touching tribute. "Send In The Clowns" one of the greatest songs written and performed. I remember every Sunday going into Chicago for some entertainment and friendship, and on the way home it was almost invevitable that Judy's "Send In The Clowns" was played on this classical station that highlighted popular music to enriched the soul. It was usually the perfect song for the conclusion of a perfect Sunday in Chicago. "Salt Of The Earth" a Jagger/Richards song that showed their writing skills. This is one of my least favorite songs on the LP/Cd, though I recognize it as a well written song. "Brother Can You Spare A Dime" is a song one can only understand years down the road of life.Read more ›

I've had a slightly scratchy version of this album for over 20 years and thoroughly enjoy it,especially when I am in a pensive mood, or just want to hear some inspirational music, often with a social message that transcends the decades ---including "Salt of the Earth." Now I'm finally upgrading to a CD.
The tribute to Duke Ellington brings me close to tears each time I hear it. And now that baseball season is upon us, the late, great Steve Goodman(a devout Chicago Cub fan) is remembered with a solid version of his "City of New Orleans." The listener can feel part of that venerable train as it heads downstate in Illinois.
Judy Collins has done so much for the world, and the world of music, so it is impossible to single out just one album ---but make sure you have this one (in a new CD if possible) in your collection. And take a ride with her on the City of New Orleans as it rolls down the track with "the disappearing railroad blues."

"Judith" is one of those efforts where everything seems to come together just right... the musicianship, Judy's voice, and song selection all add up to a tremendous album.
The song selection covers a range that few popular artists would put on a single album -- from Great Depression era blues ("Buddy Can You Spare a Dime") to Broadway ("Send in the Clowns"), from biographical story-telling ("Born to the Breed") and country-folk ("The City of New Orleans") to rock and roll ("Salt of the Earth"). Whether written by Judy herself or others (most tunes are written by others), each song is excellent both in itself and as part of a collective whole.
The clear, pure, melodic qualities of Judy's voice are in fine form on this CD; this represents probably the single best effort in her career (that naturally says quite a bit). "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress" opens the CD and quickly and firmly establishes that this is a talented singer at the top of her game. The musicianship is solid throughout (check out the opening guitar work on "City of New Orleans"), and the arrangements work perfectly for every song.
I suppose there is one criticism I could level at the album -- it is only one CD. I'd have loved it if Judy had put out a double-CD or follow-up CD to this one, given the quality of this one and the years of musical listening enjoyment it has given me.

This is one of those albums that transports you back to the time you first heard it. The years rolled away when I listened to this, and it was summer 1975 again. 'Houses' has to be one of this artists most beautiful songs; I might not know exactly what she means, but, by God, the words bring a lump to my throat. Her version of 'City of New Orleans' isn't Willie Nelson's, but doesn't pretend to be, I suppose. An essential album for me, then, and one that takes a jaded, world-weary 40 something back to easier, brighter, sunnier days before the world turned sourer.

Made myself cry. For many years I could not listen to Judy Collins for each time I did, I thought of my dearest aunt Maryann who died just a few years ago. We would sit and listen with our heads together silently and listen to "Judith" when she was ill and cry. But, I missed Judy and this CD in particular. So, I ordered a new copy and allowed myself to listen to her beautiful and restorative voice. Wonderful memories Judy. "Send in the Clowns" as done by Judy is one of the most beautiful and hopeful songs ever written. Thank you for your gift.
