Vol. 2 of the 2009 release of Judy Garland's 1963-64 black-and-white variety show begins with the famous episode (recorded October 4, 1963 and broadcast two days later) featuring a 21-year-old Barbra Streisand singing such songs as "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" and "Down with Love" by herself, then a number of songs with Garland, including the medley of "Get Happy" and "Happy Days Are Here Again" in counterpoint. Ethel Merman comes out of the audience and joins the two stars for "There's No Business Like Show Business," and as they talk Streisand mentions that her next big project will be Funny Girl. The Smothers Brothers also appear, and Garland ends the show with her traditional "Born in a Trunk" solo sequence, performing "You Made Me Love You," "For Me and My Gal," and "The Trolley Song." The second episode on the disc (recorded October 11, 1963 and broadcast March 13, 1964) has a Wizard of Oz feel, with guest star Ray Bolger dancing to Garland's singing, and the two reminiscing about Oz and breaking into "We're Off to See the Wizard." Garland participates in an elaborate production number of "The Jitterbug" (cut from Oz) with the other guest, Jane Powell, the two do a comedy number with series regular Jerry Van Dyke (Dick's younger brother), and Powell performs "Dear Friend" from She Loves Me, which had opened on Broadway only six months earlier. Garland closes the show with her solo renditions of "When Your Lover Has Gone" and "Some People." Though it lasted only one season, The Judy Garland Show remains a valuable archive of music variety shows in the 1960s and of Garland's life and legacy. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

Like other iconic performers of her era, Judy Garland was nearly as well known for the scandal surrounding her personal life as she was for her bigger-than-life talent. But early on, she stood out as one of MGM's brightest stars, even among a stable of Hollywood's biggest names. In 1939, won she won a special Academy Award for Best Juvenile Performer (originally intended for Shirley Temple) for The Wizard of Oz, setting her course to superstardom. The Emmy-nominated Judy Garland Show ended its critically acclaimed CBS-TV run after just one season (1963-64). Today, those 26 variety shows are revered by many as the entertainment icon's finest work. In volume two, Judy is joined for an extravaganza of song, dance and comedy by Barbra Streisand, The Smothers Brothers, Ethel Merman, Jane Powell, Ray Bolger (her co-star in The Wizard of Oz) and series regular Jerry Van Dyke. Restored and digitally remastered from the original masters, this dynamic diva will move you like no one else! Look for all 13 volumes, each featuring two 50-minute shows. Bonus Features: Outtakes; original mono sound and 5.1 surround sound.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware September 29, 2009
Verified Purchase
Shameful treatment of a wonderful TV show. Garland and her show deserve better. The Streisand/Smothers Brothers episode is edited and is in no way an improvement upon the picture quality of the orginal Pioneer release. So glad I have all of the original Pioneer releases and encourage others to find them as well. I WILL not but any future releases.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another big disappointment October 1, 2009
Verified Purchase
Volume 1 of this series came out and did not live up to its promise. The shows are edited and the packaging is poor. No serious effort was made in the quality department. I kept Volume 1, hoping for a better result in the next release. Volume 2 arrived today and is as bad or worse than the first was -- I have decided to return it for refund. If this company can keep an audience long enough to release all 13 volumes, it will be a miracle to me. This item was another big disappointment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Vol 2 Judy Show September 29, 2009
Verified Purchase
I just got this vol 2 of Judys show. First of all I want to state I am a HUGE Judy Garland fan- She was the best their ever was - HOWEVER.........this dvd as along with vol 1 is EDITED !! I was really disappointed with this product. Why sell a show espeacilly Judys that is edited? It starts out at the begining after the credits- Judy is about to announce her guests - all she said was she had a really good show tonite and bam to the next scene where she introduces the Smother Bros.......... a whole scene was cut where they all came on and talked a bit and Judy sang Be My Guest - all gone. I really recommend getting the Pioneer Box set released about 10 years ago if you can find it- Its all complete and I think the quality is alot better on those sets- these current releases do not look at all- that remastered as stated PLUS on the cases of the dvd it says deleted scenes. They are no where to be found on this set on either vol so far- no extras but they say they do--The Pioneer set has tons of extras and cut stuff and all And one more thing - the first vol came in a really nice thin case with picures ect of Judy - real cute and slim with colorful stuff- this vol 2 came in a cheap flimsy dvd case - those fat ones you find at the dollar stores........ needless to say I wont be buying any further volumes - I will just watch my 2 Pioneer box sets I purchased on the first go around of this series. Judy deserves a better release of this timeless classic - The Show That Got Away !

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh Judy September 25, 2009
Verified Purchase
I just got Volume 2 in the mail and must say that I am disappointed by the product. I bought volume one when it came out a few months back, the packaging for both volumes are totally different! Volume 1 is in a thin case.. while Volume 2 is in a standard plastic case. The quality of the sound is AMAZING but the new transfer is a bit shoddy and there a times when the image looks "digital".. gone is the dreamy soft quality of the previous releases. Also, I am a bit confused by the release order on these discs. The Pioneer releases are in chronological order.. these new volumes are not. And there is hardly any written info included with these disks.. the copy on the back of the DVD case is mere filler regarding Judy's life.. nothing regarding the show. All in all these shows are nice to listen to.. sometimes good to look at.. but they cut the wonder that is Judy short!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Garland Fans, ESSENTIAL for Streisand ones! October 11, 2009
After watching Volume one of this series of remastered video tapes of Judy Garlands 1963-64 CBS-TV series I was impressed by the sharp images and crisp sound - to say nothing of Judy's performances (which I've seen on earlier releases). The problem with Volume one was too much time devoted to comedian Jerry Van Dyke.

Van Dyke is here again - I think her was in every episode of the series - but he's restrained and bearable this time.

There are two shows on this disc and the first is a must have. It features Barbra Streisand JUST BEFORE she was to star in Funny Girl and was just 21 or 22 years old! But, boy did she have the poise of a star. She does a bunch of solos and some duets with Garland. And to top it off, they are joined by Ethel Merman! A match made in heaven: three divas for the price of one! The Smothers Brothers are here too but not something you will re-watch.

The second episode features Jane Powell and Judy's Wizard of Oz co-star Ray Bolger. There is a medley from WoO and a few song and dance numbers. I liked this episode, but not as much as the Streisand/Merman one.

A few other reviewers mentioned that there were significant edits but I don't have the previous releases so can't confirm how much. There is the extended "run-out" ending that probably was not in the broadcast version.

The most significant - and annoying - deficiency in this volume is a repeated from Volume 1. There songs are not indexed into chapters! You can't just go to a Barbara song or a Judy number or find the Wizard of Oz medley easily. There are chapters but not logically arranged. Also, for a series that is to become 13 Volumes, there should be consistency in the packaging. Both of these caused the loss of one star. The "star power" of the first episode brought my rating up from three to four stars.

I'll be anxious to see what Volume 3 looks like.
