"we will never forget the films, recordings & TV performance
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 08/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From her television show during 1963-64 on the CBS-TV network...here you will witness and enjoy the command Garland had over her audience with new and old material, all with that fresh interpretation...let's look at the genres Judy covers from Hollywood, Broadway, Patriotic and Folk tunes no holds barred and she takes on each one with her familiar gusto.

Each track is accompanied by gifted session musicians with rhythm sections, choruses, instrumental solos and full orchestra featuring her favorite arranger, orchestrator and conductor Mort Lindsey the best in the business...as Mr. John Fricke states in the liner notes "Garland walked out of CBS bigger than when she came in...she mastered the uneasy relationship between star and camera...knew when to play to it and when to play to the studio audience...tackled new kinds of songs with moods and emotions difficult to sustain and brought them off sucessfully"...also several never-before-published photographs in the album booklet.

Hats off to John Fricke (compiled & annotated by), Joshua Sherman (executive producer), Dan Marx (production coordinator), Paul Reid III (reissue engineering & compact disc mastering), Steve Sanders & Fricke (photos) and of course Savoy Jazz for this memorial tribute release for Judy who would have been celebrating her 83rd Birthday Anniversary...born: Frances Ethel Gumm from Grand Rapids, Minnesota on June 10,1922...and through recordings like this we never really lost Judy on June 22,1969...she remains in our hearts through her songs...just the way it should be!

Total Time: 44:00 on 9 Tracks ~ Savoy Jazz 17575 ~ (8/09/2005)"
Judy Garland Duets
R. Sterling Foster | The Jersey Shore | 09/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All these duets are from Judy Garland's CBS television show of the 1963 - 1964 season. While I like some of the duets better than others, Judy is consistently excellent throughout. She's especially electrifying in her duet with a very young Barbra Streisand and when signing with Mel Torme accompanied by Count Basie's orchestra. Her rendition of Irving Berlin's "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" shakes the rafters as does the show stopping "April in Paris" at the end of that set. For humor, her duet of 1940 hits with an outrageous Martha Raye still sparkles with wit."
POOR SOUND QUALITY HURTS THESE TUNES
Alan W. Petrucelli | THE ENTERTAINMENT REPORT (ALAN W. PETRUCELLI) | 03/27/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Here's proof that what sounds like a great idea on paper can flop when transferred to compact disc. The tunes on these recordings have been culled from Liza's mom's '60s small-screen variety series, but the less-than-stellar sound quality hurts, making them more grating than gracious. The rambling bits of dialogue feel hollow and disconnected when heard out of context; those wanting to hear Judy sing these songs should watch her as well. Geneon Entertainment will take die-hard devotees over the rainbow --- they have released Judy's entire ill-fated series on DVD, proving you can go home again. And again. And again."
