Undiscovered gem

The actual audio-quality is just 'good' not excellent, but the song selection and stylings on this are really great. Skip the self-indulgent tittle, and move on to some excellent lounge and stage sounding songs like 'come down in time' and 'special; delivery', pop a valium and you will be living a 70's TV-movie, in a good way.

Unknown Gem

As of March 2009, this underrated Judy Collins album remains out of print. It was once briefly available on CD. This seems to be the only place where one can get the entire collection of songs. Although not everything is up there with Judy’s best material, there are some real gems on this recording not to be missed by anyone who loves her. Particularly touching is Judy’s cover of Elton John’s “Come Down In Time.” “Everything Must Change” and “King David” are also sensitive and beautiful recordings. Otherwise, this is a sometimes-awkward mix of styles, even moving into commercial pop territory (“Special Delivery”). Recommended for Judy Collins fans, but not the best place to start if you want to get to know her very best work.

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...
