Product Description

This beloved double LP-a #1 album and Grammy winner for 1961 Album of the Year-has reached its 40th anniversary! Her irresistible versions of Over the Rainbow; Puttin' on the Ritz; Swanee; Chicago; You Go to My Head; Alone Together; Come Rain or Come Shine , and the rest of the original release.

Amazon.com

The late 1950s were tough on Judy Garland, but this live recording, cut on April 23, 1961, at Carnegie Hall, would (rightfully) bring the legendary icon back into the spotlight. Live would go on to win five Grammys, be Garland's bestselling record, and confirm that, yes, on certain levels, she still had it. Her vocals are as strong as ever on these tunes, and Garland has fun with an audience obviously enraptured by her charms. She's self-deprecating where necessary--on "You Go to My Head" she "forgets" the lyrics but pretends to improvise. Mostly she just shines, especially on tunes she made famous, such as "Come Rain or Come Shine," "Stormy Weather," and "Over the Rainbow." This is easily one of pop music's greatest live recordings and a fine testament to Garland's recorded legacy. This two-CD set has been remastered for EMI's 40th-anniversary reissue to coincide with the ABC film based on daughter Lorna Luft's memoir Me and My Shadows (and is also available in a 24-karat-gold audiophile format released in 2000). --Jason Verlinde

Customer Reviews

Judy Garland was always at her best doing live performances.
Ruben R. Rogers
That night Judy came out to a standing ovation and if you turn the volume up just a little and listen carefully you can even hear fans chanting a chorus of "Judy!
Matthew G. Sherwin
Incredibly sustained notes and a powerful voice makes her an audience's dream.

Format: Audio CD
So much has been written about Garland's private life that over time it has been increasingly difficult to reach through her notoriety to experience the art she created. The 1961 Carnegie Hall Concert provides the listener an opportunity to do just that.

Although the recording includes several examples of Garland's conversational rapport with her audience, the emphasis is on the music. And here, from the moment the orchestra begins an excitingly arranged overture, we find a degree of electricity, authority, and artistry that equal and quite possibly best any other performer of the 20th Century.

Although her range was not remarkable, Garland's voice possessed tonal qualities that set her apart from any other singer of her era, but more importantly Garland's voice was an instrument of incredible emotional nuance. Whether tossing off an up-beat throw-away such as "You Go To My Head," a scorching torch ballad like "The Man That Got Away," or the belter's classic "Swanee," one is always acutely aware of what seems to be an instinctively flawless phrasing specifically designed with you personally in mind, unavoidable, inevitable, and inescapable.

If you never listen to, or own, any other Garland recording, it must be this one. Forget about all the things you've read, all the documentaries you've seen, the mythology and iconography--interesting as such may be, Garland's completely overwhelming talent doesn't require reference to anything except itself. Lock the door, draw the curtain, turn off the telephone--and simply experience the single finest live concert recording of the 20th Century.

I have loved this recording for twenty years. It is Judy Garland at the climax of her now legendary 1960-1961 tour. My only problem all these years, in my opinion, was that both the LP and original CD release had a very muddy sound to them. The original CD release even substituted a studio version of "Alone Together" for the original track. The performance was still classic, but Judy was lost behind the roar of the crowd and a brilliantly loud orchestra. Well my friends, NOT any more! DCC obtained the original master tapes and re-mixed them the way they should have been. This "live" recording has a REALLY "LIVE" sound to it. Judy is right out front beating the band and has never sounded better. Things what were nearly undetectible on prior issues are now loud and clear! Not only is the audio quality improved but the recording is finally REALLY complete. Including the original "Alone Together" track. You have every moment as it happened nearly 39 years ago. From the first round of applause when the house lights dimmed, to Judy's footsteps across the stage, to additional storytelling by Judy, to the enthusiastic chatter after the curtain fell. It's all there! I don't care if you are a die-hard Judy Garland fan or just meeting Judy for the first time. If this is your first exposure....WHAT AN INTRODUCTION! The Gold Disc set is a must have for ANY music lover. Who ever said that you can't improve a classic. Steve Hoffman and DCC have done just that! The booklet included contains both the original album liner notes and new insightful narritive by noted Garland historian Scott Schechter. Listen especially for the new story from Judy following "That's Entertainment" on disc two. Shows off her legendary sense of humor brilliantly. I give this release ten stars. A highly entertaining, musical experience! Buy It!

Simply put, this recording documents one of the greatest triumphs of Garland's career. The quality of the recording is excellent. That night Judy came out to a standing ovation and if you turn the volume up just a little and listen carefully you can even hear fans chanting a chorus of "Judy! Judy! Judy!" over and over again. Garland then goes on to sing 26 songs, including some jazz, and wows the audience with her performance. Her rapport with the audience is excellent and the fact that Garland concerts were scripted is impossible to notice here. At the end of the second CD of this two CD set there is a long instrumental of "Over the Rainbow." It was at this time that fans rushed to the apron to shake hands with Judy or at least touch her hand or wrist for even just an instant of a second. How I wish I could have been there that night! Many stars flew in expressly for the occasion. Judy does two encores of After You've Gone and Chicago; they are exquisitely well done. At one point Judy "wonders" if the audience is getting tired--how they scream NO! Then she comments that perhaps she should keep singing and that they should all stay all night--and they SCREAM FOR MORE WITH DELIGHT! PLEASE, get this two CD set--I can't see how you or anyone could possibly regret this purchase. A strong BUY!

This new reissue of possibly the greatest live album by a popular singer of the last century is amazing. In the previous CD release, the overture was thrilling, but here it positively blasts you out of your seat. The audience spontaneously bursts into applause at the climax of The Man That Got Away during the Overture; with this new release you'll hear why: you'll "get" the full power of this wonderful orchestra for the first time.
But the best part is, of course, the clarity and power of Judy's voice, which is present on this CD with dramatic vividness. My previous (slight) reservation that her voice was not as powerful as it had been 10 years earlier has been corrected. From the moment she opens with "When You're Smiling", you'll know that she never sounded better! If you already know this performance, your first time hearing this CD will be a revelation, no matter how highly you regarded it before.
They have finally released the entire concert, and the pandemonium of the last half hour of the event is excitingly captured, unlike in the previous CD, which merely hinted at what you'll hear here. There is also a new story, one which you can also find on the DVDs of her TV show, but which she puts a hilarious twist on in this CD.
It's about time this great performance was given the Royal treatment it deserves. When will there ever be another talent like this?
By the way, if you don't already own a surround sound system, this release is the reason to get one. I actually went out and bought a new pair of rear speakers a week after I got this CD.
