My Judy Collins’ CD review posted today to Elmore magazine

6 Feb

Elmore Magazine | Judy Collins – Both Sides Now: The Very BestFolk pop icon Judy Collins has rerecorded and re-mastered 28 of her most beloved songs with Both Sides Now, The Very Best of, released by Wild Flower Records in association with Cleopatra Records Inc.

Collins’ clear, crisp and soprano voice once carried a troubled nation through the most tumultuous times of the 20th century, the Vietnam War.

This collection spans her vast catalog of original songs including a duet with Joan Baez on “Diamonds and Rust,” to create an unforgettable interpretation of the 1975 hit song.

Stephen Stills sings “Last Thing On My Mind,” with Collins and also showcases his craft skills with Dave Cleveland on guitar.

Collins and soloist Christopher Warren-Green Collins recreates an unforgettable version of the 1977 Stephen Sondheim’s hit standard, “Send in the Clowns.”

Arlo Guthrie together with Eric Anderson and Tom Rush join Collins to sing an uplifting live version of “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”

Collins’ distinct song craft, at once intimate, melodic and emotional, breathes new life into song standards “Amazing Grace” and “Over the Rainbow,” for fans and millennials alike. –
