iTunes Review

This enormously successful 1972 anthology chronicles a classic period in Judy Collins' career, when she graduated from the straight folk sound of her early- to mid-'60s work to an eclectic but elegant aesthetic that married her velvety croon to everything from country-rock (Ian Tyson's "Someday Soon") and folk-rock (Sandy Denny's "Who Knows Where the Time Goes") to Jacques Brel's "Sons Of" and tunes by the era's premier songsmiths (Collins' version of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" was a huge hit). The sensitive chamber-pop arrangements of Joshua Rifkin help define the sound, and Collins' own tunes show she was more than an interpreter.

Wonderful Judy Collins sampler

I was surprised to see that this collection was only just added to the iTunes store. I had this on vinyl when I was in college and it remains (with "Wildflowers") one of my favorite Collins recordings. There are the hits that everyone over a certain age knows: "Both Sides Now," "Suzanne," and "Someday Soon." But this collection abounds with gorgeous tracks that people new to Collins' work should hear: "Albatross," "My Father," "Since You Asked" and "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" are standouts. And though I may be the only person in the world who HATES the song "Amazing Grace", Collins' version is haunting. This collection is absolutely worth every penny.

Amazing Grace

Without a dpubt.this is one of the most beautiful hymns of all times.I first heard her sing this pn the radio back in the early to late70s when it became a smash hit on a 45RPM record.At that time there was an abundance of gospel and tradiyional singers ,and many different styles of music. I will never forget the first time I heard her sing this with the chior , it moved me to tears as it had a simple way of bringing about a great message for all mankind to hear. We have lost that talent in the music that is written and sung today,May it forever be a simple message of love and hope for many years to come.

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...
