iTunes Review

Recorded on March 21, 1964 at Town Hall in New York City when Collins was just 24 years old, The Judy Collins Concert was her first appearance in a proper theater, after years of toiling in folk clubs. The material ranges from traditional works like “Bonnie Boy Is Young” and “Wild Rippling Water” to contemporary songs by the best writers of the day. Only Shel Silverstein’s “Hey, Nelly Nelly” had previously appeared on one of her albums. Tom Paxton’s “The Last Thing On My Mind” was already on its way to becoming a classic. Bob Dylan’s “The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll” dealt directly with racial inequality and class privilege. Billy Edd Wheeler contributes three notable compositions, including the spellbinding opener, “Winter Sky.” John Phillips, later of the Mamas & The Papas, gave her “Me & My Uncle.” Fred Neil’s “Tear Down the Walls” was a great cry for liberation. Ewan MacColl’s traditional “Cruel Mother” has a gentle gait that displays Collins’ incredible composure during one of the most important nights in her young career.

The Judy Collins Concert

I have this on vinyl and I'm very happy to see it on iTunes. This is one of her best albums, her voice was young and strong with a new self assurance and directess and you will hear her talking to a hushed audience. This was an important event in Folk music. The vinyl liner notes by Jack Goddard were terrific, he states..."There were songs ranging from the shadowy misery of depressed coal towns to the exuberance of a cowhand's stolen amours, to bitter reflections on American racial strife." Steve Mandell does a great job on banjo and 2nd guitar. Just a beautiful, historic piece of American music.

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...
