Smart and well-done compilation of Judy Garland's best-known Decca hit studio recordings (not the film soundtrack versions). The film recordings tend to be better recorded (and are available on a recommended compilation on Rhino), but the sound here is quite good and the performances are classic. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" features the rarely-anthologized original wartime lyrics that make the song more poignant in my estimation. Booklet includes track-by-track notes with recording dates and context. Nicely done.

The Very Best Of Judy Garland (Over The Rainbow)is Just what the album title says. This CD features recordings Garland made in the 40s at Decca Records. All of her classic standards are here and sound brilliant. "Dear Mr. Gable" is here from her early years as well as "Over The Rainbow" and her romantic ballads of "Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart" and "Our Love Affair" you as a listener also will here her version "Blues In The Night", "Embraceable You" and "I Got Rhythm" Both from (Girl Crazy) are here Plus duets with Bing Crosby, Johnny Mercer and Gene Kelly are a must for any music lover. Since Christmas Is coming you will also get to enjoy Judy's Classic carol of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" This album is definately a must for Judy and or Music fans. The Very Best of...also includes one of the very best photo's of Judy on the cover!!

Format: Audio CD
This CD offers an excellent collection of some--not all--of the best of Judy Garland's work for Decca Records when she was an actress at MGM. Judy's voice is in excellent form on this CD although there is a fair amount of surface noise on the initial two or three tracks. In addition, just so you know, these recordings are mostly, if not all, the ones she recorded for Decca Records--they are NOT the recordings from the soundtracks of her movies. That having been said, however, this CD does add some splendid bonuses that we would not have heard were it not for Decca Records: Judy's duet with Bing Crosby on "Yah-Ta-Ta, Yah-Ta-Ta (Talk, Talk, Talk);" and her duet with The Merry Macs on "The Atchison, Topeka And The Santa Fe."

To state that Judy Garland "had the pipes" to be Hollywood's undisputed Queen Of The Musical would be a crass understatement. Judy's voice sensed and invariably expressed every little nuance of every word and phrase she ever sang. Her voice sounded much, much better than any female recording artist or actress I've ever heard. She could sing like a woman whose heart had been so irreparably broken that even the hardest of hearts would be deeply moved. She could also perform a rousing number that would make you want to jump up and dance with joy from the very moment she began to sing.

On this CD just one listen proves it: Once you've heard Garland, there are no other female singers. She delivers a charming performance of "Over The Rainbow" and this is followed by "Dear Mr. Gable: You Made Me Love You." Her "Friendship" duet with Johnny Mercer charms you and she sings "Blues In The Night (My Mama Done Tol' Me)" in such a way that your heart feels everything she sings.

Over the Rainbow is a great budget priced CD that showcases the singular vocal talents of the immortal Judy Garland. Nobody could ever touch audiences the way Judy could; and this CD more than proves her contributions to the arts were beyond comparison.

The CD starts out with Judy singing "Over The Rainbow" which was recorded around the time she was in The Wizard Of Oz. This rendition of "Over The Rainbow" sometimes picks up the pace a bit from the movie soundtrack version--this is NOT from the soundtrack of The Wizard Of Oz. Nevertheless, Judy turns in a fabulous performance and it makes the perfect appetizer for the rest of the CD's hits.

"You Made Me Love You (Dear Mr. Gable)" was one of Judy's first masterpieces ever captured on old 78s and in the movie Broadway melody of 1938; the story goes that Judy sang this so well the movie going audiences applauded at the end of this song as if Judy had given a live performance! Judy sings "You Made Me Love You (Dear Mr. Gable) with panache and great sensitivity; I could never forget this performance. "For Me And My Gal" showcases Judy singing sweeter than I've ever heard a lady sing; and she enhances the natural beauty of this number simply by using her incredible voice!

"I'm Nobody's Baby" again features Judy's excellent vocals from her MGM years; the strings work well in the musical arrangement, too. "I Got Rhythm" from Girl Crazy features a great big band arrangement to accompany Judy as she flawlessly delivers this number.

"Swanee" is a solid number that Judy always loved to sing; and you can tell she's enjoying every minute of recording this when you hear this! Judy's excellent diction bolsters her performance even more.

Format: Audio CD
Dutch label DISKY has assembled one terrific and comprehensive collection of Judy Garland songs-- many are original film soundtracks, and every single one of these songs is Judy Garland at her finest. Judy appears here with among others, the Victor Young and David Rose orchestras; she duets with Gene Kelly {"For Me And My Gal," "When You Wore A Tulip") and Bing Crosby ("Mine"). "Bidin' My Time," with harmonca and chorus, is a particular highlight. The title number, "Over The Rainbow," isn't from the WIZARD OF OZ soundtrack, but it is surely contemporary with that 1939 film.

Sound quality is good, considering the source material-- not hi-fi. No liner notes.

JUDY GARLAND OVER THE RAINBOW belongs in every fan's collection.

TOTAL RUNNING TIME -- 72:35
