iTunes Review

Judy Collins emerged in the ‘60s as one of the finest interpretative singers in any genre. Her roots were in folk music, however, she was quick to embrace modern songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, and Eric Andersen and with her fifth album showcases their unusual melodic gifts, often obscured by the songwriters' gruffer delivery. Her impeccable choices are in full display. Three Dylan covers ("Tomorrow Is A Long Time," "Daddy You've Been On My Mind," "Mr, Tambourine Man") point to his obvious influence, but plenty of other notable songwriters were given their due. Richard Farina's "Pack Up Your Sorrows" became an immediate classic. Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain" reflects its somber sentiment. Phil Ochs' "In the Heat of the Summer" actually anticipates the further turbulence of the civil rights movement. "The Coming of the Roads" is among Collins' finest performances, reflecting on the many changes  — romantic, geographical, sentimental — of the era. The traditional "Lord Gregory" and "So Early, Early In the Spring" come from her traditional folk background. Fifth Album is one of Collins' finest albums and a perfect reflection of the creative burst that occurred during the mid-‘60s.

Memories...

I wore this album out when I was 10 years old, and have rediscovered it at 50. Pack Up Your Sorrows, Daddy You've Been on My Mind, Thirsty Boots, Early Morning Rain... they're all so deeply, deeply embedded in my memory. Thanks, Rhino!

Don't Miss It!

It was good to see this album re-released. Over the years I had worn out my vinyl copy. There's a nice mix of styles and tempos here, classic folk, message songs, as well as some ballads such as Thirsty Boots and The Coming of the Roads that are among my all time favorites. Most of these songs never received any radio play, but they are easy to listen to. Some listeners never get beyond the Greatest Hits album, but if you try this one out, you'll not be disappointed.

Singer Judy Collins was, along with Joan Baez, one of the two major interpretive singers to emerge from the folk revival of the late '50s and early '60s. Like Baez, she began singing traditional folk songs, then moved on to popularize the work of contemporary singer/songwriters, even writing her own songs occasionally. Unlike Baez, she used her classical music training to evolve into being a singer of art songs and show tunes, sometimes employing semi-classical arrangements. In a career that began...
