Editorial Reviews

Songwriter and singer Judy Collins is a living legend. For nearly 40 illustrious years, her dulcet tones have graced our ears, and her poetic lyrics galvanized a generation. She has released more than 30 albums, has had numerous Top Ten hits, Grammy nominations and gold and platinum selling albums. In this concert special, taped this year at Humphrey’s By the Bay in San Diego, Folksinger friends Arlo Guthrie, Tom Rush, and Eric Anderson join Judy for a night where each singer shines in their own right and in a collaborative group of folksinging mayhem. DVD EXTRAS includes Commentary with Judy Collins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Judy Collins & Friends Shine December 2, 2003
This DVD captures a live concert of the Judy Collins Wildflowers Festival recorded in San Diego, June 30, 2002. Judy and her co-stars Arlo Guthrie, Eric Anderson, and Tom Rush shine in this rich performance of folk classics, including City of New Orleans, Amazing Grace, The Circle, In My Life, and Both Sides Now. Each singer performs a solo set, and all four join in a rousing encore. Collins sings her own Home Before Dark and Open the Door, as well as standards such as Send in the Clowns. Each provides a sparkling performance and the four blend voices beautifully in the encores. Production values are terrific. An unforgettable gathering of four of America's best loved folk singers of the past 40 years. Not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, amazing, amazing! November 7, 2004
Amazing grace, indeed! This is an incredible show with stellar performances by some of the finest and, in my opinion, most under-rated singers of the past century. Judy Collins is a wonderful singer and performer and she lends class and grace to every song she sings. The version here of "In My Life," sung with the other guest artists, is incredible. In "City of New Orleans," although Judy had a rousing version on her album entitled "JUDITH" -- this time she lets Arlo take it away and sing his own rendition while offering a beautiful supporting voice -- she doesn't try to one-up him and impose her version on him. Eric Anderson's "Thirsty Boots" brings tears to my eyes, and to hear Judy and Eric sing it together is thrilling. At times, the guest stars' performances get a little draggy, but whenever Judy is on, the stage glows. A magical evening -- and dvd! I highly recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Songs For Aging Folk Children May 5, 2010
Okay, just when you thought there could not possibly be any more country folk, urban folk, suburban folk, folk rock, rock folk, semi-folk, or quasi-folk music from the folk revival of the early 1960 to review here I am again reviewing some of the stars of that time-in their dotage. Well, maybe not dotage, but we are all, including Judy Collins, Eric Andersen, Tom Rush, and Arlo Guthrie, getting a little long in the tooth, and no one can dispute that hard fact. The real question is whether the artists in this compilation still have it, at least for those of us in that dwindling, graying, arthritic, prescription-needing folk audience that fills the small church basement "coffee houses" on this planet. And they do. Still have it, I mean.

That said, this little Wildflower Festival setting in 2003 provided Judy and her guests with a chance to show their stuff, new and old. Now, for those who have heard Judy Collins sing back in the day the question is why she did not challenge Joan Baez for the "queen" of folk title. She had the voice, the style, and the looks (ya, that WAS important, even then) to do so. I have been running a "Not Joan Baez" series and will deal with that question there at some other time but her work here is pretty good, especially her well-known cover of Ian Tyson's "Someday Soon". Eric Andersen, who I have already looked at in a "Not Bob Dylan" series hold forth on his "Blue River". Tom Rush, ditto, on "The Remember Song". Finally, Arlo, whom I have covered in relation to his father's, Woody Guthrie, music "steals" the show here with his storytelling, notably the kid's story, "Mooses Came Walking".

Nice package. Not as good as Judy Live At Wolf Trap. Judy carries the show. However, at the end of the concert all four sing a few songs together. They blend their voices well and it is a very enjoyable conclusion to the concert.

Live Concert (NetFlx 367/10)

5.0 out of 5 stars I can hear the whistle blow 100 miles March 4, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a really nice program! If you don't like folk music, keep moving, but if you love folk music, you'll love this.

I never really "got" Judy Collins, but she is very pleasant in this and in the live concerts I've seen. The production of the music is nice and sparse, so she is actually more enjoyable to me here than in a few concerts I've been to. Still, you can't help getting that "pop" feeling.

The others in this show, however, are just great! I've never seen Eric Anderson live to the best of my recollection, so this is a nice treat. Doing a Lou Reed song is a cool touch. Folk music really transcends. Maybe that how it has survived all this time.

Tom Rush and Arlo Guthrie are both as humorous and talented as ever and these two performances are, in my opinion, worth the price of admission. The big group sing at the end falls a little flat, but doesn't it always? You need Pete Seeger to really do it right.

The only thing wrong with this is Disc Two. Why is it there? Just to make the package seem bigger? These bonus features are interviews with the performers. Pretty much the same questions are posed to each of them. And they aren't any more lengthy than they are in-depth. They could easily have been tacked onto Disc One.

I can't really take off points for the stupidity of the bonus disc, I guess. That's not what you're thinking about buying this item for. So, I'm going a full five stars on this baby. Folk lives!
