I found the album moving on several levels, and a uniquely devouring experience.
But for some of us, this Judy Garland concert by Rufus is enough to make us get down on our knees, reach to the sky, and shout to the heavens "Thank you God!" I bought the CD having some wee little doubts about whether I would like it or not, but I enjoy Rufus' music so much that I just had to try it. From the very beginning of the CD I was totally hooked. It was the most fun I have ever had listening to a music CD. I listened to it as I rode the bus to and from work, and as I walked home from the bus stop.
I was walking down R Street here in Washington DC as I listened to Martha Wainwright singing "Stormy Weather" and having never heard her before I initially thought "Oh gosh, I really wish I could hear RUFUS sing this song instead of his sister!" But it didn't take long for me to say "Wait a minute. This gal is fantastic!" Oh yes, she is amazing, with a totally unique voice, much like Rufus, which some might not like, but which I could listen to for the next 50 years. Her rendition of "Stormy Weather" is the best rendition of that song I ever heard in my life. I fell to my knees right on the sidewalk of R Street and screamed "I love you Lena Horne, but this Martha gal has made this song HER baby now!Read more ›
