I saw this concert on PBS and loved it.
richard Shaw
Several of the songs were new to me so I am glad to have the opportunity to listen to the music again.

This is a wonderful album for any Judy Collins fan, and for anyone yet to be introduced to her music.

Judy Collins has to be the 8th wonder of the U. S. pop/folk music world. Like fine wine, she appears to just get better with age. On this live CD recorded at the Temple off Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art-- a rather classy setting, Ms. Collins is just as classy. She is at ease with her audience, making just enough comments to be interesting but not boring. And then there is that voice, so clear and pure after all these years of singing. I believe Ms. Collins is 73.

There are 16 selections here, some of my favorites. She would have gotten an A+ from me had she sung "My Father." She does include, however, the poignant "In The Twilight," a song she wrote about her mother who had Alzheimer's--"she's a lady"-- and I was glad to see the Ian Tyson song "Some Day Soon" that I do not believe she often includes on her "best of" albums. She opens her concert with the rousing "Open The Door," another of her own compositions ("Open the door and come on in/I'm so glad to see you, my friend") and closes with one of her greatest hits "Send in the Clowns." She also sings Joan Baez's song about Bob Dylan that she has recorded with Baez "Diamonds and Rust" and "Helplessly Hoping," written by Stephen Stills. We get just a little of "Suzanne," the Leonard Cohen song she recorded so long ago and the first song I ever heard her sing. And I have always thought she sings "Mr. Tambourine Man" better than Dylan (although I thought a friend of mine would throw me out of his car when I had the temerity to voice that opinion). The others are "Both Sides Now," "Campo de Encino," "Pure Imagination," "Veteran's Day," "Pastures of Plenty," "Moon Is A Harsh Mistress," " Since You've Asked" and "The Blizzard.

Judy Collins has always been my favorite singer, and nowhere is she more in her element than before a live audience. This fact is made exceedingly clear in her latest effort, Judy Collins Live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art at the Temple of Dendur. The concert is available on both CD and DVD, with the DVD including a bit of Leonard Cohen's magnificent "Suzanne", plus renditions of Ian and Sylvia Tyson's haunting "Someday Soon", and Michael Veitch's tender "Veterans Day" from Judy's recent studio album "Bohemian". Also exclusive to the DVD is Collins' masterpiece "The Blizzard", an epic nearly six minute beauty about being trapped in the throes of a Colorado blizzard with a stranger and the owner of a diner, a song that first appeared on Collins' unfairly overlooked 1990 album "Fires of Eden".

Now on to the CD, which opens with the Collins penned "Open The Door", which first appeared on her 1971 album "Living". A superb live ensemble backs her on the number, which packs even more punch than the original live recording. "Door" is quickly followed by exquisite versions of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" and Joan Baez's song which she wrote for Dylan, the iconic "Diamonds and Rust". The CD draws heavily with classics such as these intermingled with songs which appeared on "Bohemian", but Collins is the most adept singer I know who with a turn of a phrase, a change in inflection, holding a note in a different way than on the record with her versatile soprano, can sing the same song in a dozen concerts and never have it sound exactly the same twice. Hence she gets the audience to accompany her on Jimmy Webb's "Campo de Encino" by cajoling them to, "Sing it like you're at Occupy Wall Street".

Judy Collins is a remarkable woman. This album shows that perfectly -- the album is intimate, vibrant, and stunning in its beauty.

Ms. Collins is in perfect voice here, sounding as good as you remember, as good as you expect. The setting, the Temple of Dendur room in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, provides a lovely acoustic space for a cozy live performance. And while some of the songs are performed by Judy Collins alone, there's also a band and some nice guest artists here. Kenny White does a spectacular job providing support on the Crosby, Stills & Nash song "Helplessly Hoping." A personal favorite of mine, Shawn Colvin, helps turn "Since You've Asked" into a beautiful duet. Ani DiFranco and Jimmy Webb also appear as special guests.

I'm continually amazed by the fact that Ms. Collins seems never to age. She's been recording professionally for more than 50 years! Her first album came out in 1961 -- how many other performers can you name who were recording 51 years ago still sound this great?

One of the things I like best about this album is its variety of songs. You've got some of the "hits," and you've got some songs from more recent albums, along with one never-before-recorded song (the aforementioned "Helplessly Hoping").

Simply put, this album is simply stunning.

I have spent the past two days listening to this CD and I marvel at the sheer beauty and elegance that is Judy Collins. Already there have been three very well written reviews that explain quite superbly what this CD encompasses. Given the above three great reviews of this product, I will do my best not to be redundant, but there are several things I would like to add. First of all there are 13 songs on this CD. The DVD of the same name from what I have gather from H.F. Corbin "Foster Corbin's" review has at least three selections that have not been included in on this CD. To be clear, this CD does NOT include "Someday Soon", "The Blizzard", "Veteran's Day", or any portion of "Suzanne". It looks like we need to buy the DVD in order to hear (and see) those treasures.

This CD encompasses 13 tracks. They include in the following order: 1. "Open the Door" 2. "Both Sides Now" 3. "Diamonds and Rust" 4. "Campo De Encino" 5. "Pure Imagination" 6. "Helplessly Hoping" (featuring Kenny White) 7. "Pastures of Plenty"(featuring Ani Difranco) 8. "In the Twilight" 9. "Intro to Mr. Tambourine Man" 10. "Mr. Tambourine Man" 11. "Moon Is A Harsh Mistress" 12. "Since You've Asked" (featuring Shawn Colvin) 13 "Send In The Clowns". Here are a few highlights I think worth mentioning:

"Open the Door" was first released on Judy Collin's "Living" album in 1971 and then again on her "Voices" CD in 1995. Each version is unique given that the the rendition on "Living" is a studio recording and Voices album, although also studio made is just Judy and her piano. This live performance in front of the audience at the temple of Dendur gives this upbeat and uplifting song the perfect setting and the result is very well executed.
