Release Date: 03/2000
Label: Dcc Compact Classics
Catalog Number: GZS (2)-1135/1 - 1135/2
Format: CD (1 Used)
Note: In March 2000, the complete concert (including all of Judy's stories and chatter to the audience) was released by DCC Compact Classics. This 24 karat 2-CD set presents the concert as recorded through the microphone that night, with no auditorium reverb added. All the songs were presented in the order of the concert. Capitol released their own complete, restored and remastered version on a special 2-CD release on February 27, 2001, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the concert. The difference between this and the DCC Compact version is that the Capitol version has the added "hall" sound, whereas the DCC version presents the sound as recorded in Judy's microphone. This results in a sound that places Judy's voice front and center, with the rest of the hall in the background. It's a matter of taste as to which one a fan prefers.

This 24 Karat Gold 2-Disc set was Mastered directly from the original Capitol Records 3-Track "A-Set" remote sessions tapes.
The late '50s were tough on Judy Garland, but this live recording, cut on April 23, 1961, at Carnegie Hall, would (rightfully) bring the legendary icon back into the spotlight. Live would go on to win five Grammys, be Garland's bestselling record, and confirm that, yes, on certain levels, she still had it. Her vocals are as strong as ever on these tunes, and Garland has fun with an audience obviously enraptured by her charms. She's self-deprecating where necessary--on "You Go to My Head" she "forgets" the lyrics but pretends to improvise. Mostly she just shines, especially on tunes she made famous, such as "Come Rain or Come Shine," "Stormy Weather," and "Over the Rainbow." This is easily one of pop music's greatest live recordings and a fine testament to Garland's recorded legacy. For this reissue, the concert has been remastered in a splendid 24-karat gold audiophile format based only on the original masters. It also contains the artwork, liner notes, and photo montage from the original album, as well as a new essay on Garland by Scott Schechter.
