Album Review

No one knew music in the movies better than Judy Garland, who brought a parade of the great film songs to life, including five of Hollywood's biggest hits: "Over the Rainbow," "The Trolley Song," "Easter Parade," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe." Judy Goes Hollywood! Music from the Movies includes 18 songs from the movies, but not a single one of her greatest appear here. Instead, these are rare recordings she performed on television, when her program, The Judy Garland Show was lighting up the airwaves — but, sadly, not the ratings — during 1963-1964. The material is a treasure for Garland fans nevertheless, with versions of "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "That's Entertainment," and "They Can't Take That Away from Me," along with more contemporary material like "Moon River" and "Paris Is a Lonely Town" (the latter was introduced by Garland in 1962's Gay Purr-ee). Toward the end comes another treat: versions of three Wizard of Oz evergreens, performed with Broadway legend (and Scarecrow) Ray Bolger.

Customer Reviews

HOO-ray for Hollywood!

Garland is at the top of her game again, singing some of the very best Tinseltown tunes! Only a few of these gems are from her own films (notably the two from the oft-overlooked Chuck Jones animated feature, "Gay Purr-ee"), but she makes every song her own! I challenge anyone to find a better recording of "Moon River" or "More" (a song Judy heself purportedly was less than fond of). And the moments and songs shared with her "Wizard of Oz" costar Ray Bolger are as charming as they are historically important. Savoy Jazz is to be commended for sharing these classic recordings from "The Judy Garland Show" -- here's hoping that there will be many more to come!
