There are not many live recordings of this age that can boast such a long re-issue history, but this one defies all belief. First brought out as a double album in 1961 and remaining weeks in the No.1. spot, reissued countless times thereafter on vinyl and finally making a single CD appearance in an abridged form at the end of the 1980's. This "abridged form" resulted in a deluge of complaint letters to Capitol from angry fans who(quite rightly) were outraged that the definitive Garland Live recording (For that is what it is) should be butchered in such a way. Subsequently, Capitol re-issued the CD as an extended cd set, restoring much of the evenings banter and storytelling by the talented Miss Garland. DCC Classics finally got their hands on the Master tapes and beautifully restored more of the concert.(The running order corrected and previously inserted "studio" tracks removed and original tracks replaced). This sold as a 24k Gold edition for "Audiophiles" and at a price.. And here we are again, 40 years on, fully restored and sounding as fresh and alive as she did on that magical evening of April 23 1961. Miss Garland shimmers and soars. The voice a little tight and dry at first, but boy! does she shake that off and take you on a musical journey that you will find hard to file away or forget. A one in a million........buy it!
