For two seasons in 1962 and 1963, America was captivated by the Judy Garland Show. It captured one of the country's most beloved stars at the top of her game and featured the stars of the day. The signature moments of these shows were the Duets that Judy sang with her guests.

"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. An historic release from Savoy Jazz "JUDY GARLAND AND FRIENDS:DUETS ", featuring 9 tracks from the legendary Judy Garland with duets and medleys from the great singers of that time.
This previously unreleased album with songs and all the guests and dates inclusive:
1. "YES INDEED" (Tony Bennett & Dick Shawn) (12/15/63) 2. "JUDY SINGS LENA SINGS JUDY" (Lena Horne) (10/13/63) Medley: HONEYSUCKLE ROSE MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS DEED I DO ZING!

LOVER, COME BACK TO ME YOU AND THE NIGHT AND THE MUSIC IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOU
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."
Judy Garland duets with some of the all-time showbiz greats
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 04/09/2010

"Judy Garland's foray into weekly television with "The Judy Garland Show" in 1963 afforded her the chance to reunite with many of her dearest friends from the entertainment world. This disc provides a small slice of the magic conjured when Judy and her showbiz pals got together to make sweet, sweet music on her TV show.
Amongst the highlights: Judy and Lena Horne ("a couple of MGM rejects!" as Garland self-deprecatingly pointed out at the time) performing a gangbusters medley of some of their individual hits, culminating in a manic rendition of the sublime "Love".
Mickey Rooney partners Judy for "You're So Right for Me", proving that their old Andy Hardy/"Strike Up the Band" days weren't just a fluke. The two still shared a strong and winning chemistry. They strip the years away with this fun number; Rooney is in particulary good voice here. And who better to personify the magic of Glenn Miller than the vivacious Martha Raye, who joins Judy in a medley of nostalgic hits from the big band era.
Judy's kids Lorna and Joey Luft get into the act with a sprightly "Consider Yourself" (one of the high points from Garland's 1963 family Christmas special); and seventeen-year-old Liza Minnelli joins Momma for the fun "Two Lost Souls".
This is one of the best "Judy Garland Show" compilations from Savoy Jazz. Recommended."
