The 2nd CD contains tracks from the first album "Welcome to the Cruise", probably still my favourite, through to "Under the Angels". I remember reading in 1980 that Judie was not totally satisfied with her first album but I still love to listen to "Stay with me till dawn", "Sukarita", "For you" ( The first single from `78) and the wonderful "Welcome to the Cruise" which are contained here. Many peoples favourite single might be "Understanding" a great ballad from the "Sportscar" album, it has been mine. "Come hell or waters high" was recorded by DC Lee on her album "Shrine". This track was off the `81 album "I am the Phoenix" and is joined here with another track "City of Swimming Pools, a more rockier album than the previous two.
The two re-recorded tracks, "Late Again" and "How do I feel" are brilliant.
As I listen to theses two cds it is easy to be over whelmed by the maturity of the craftsman ship of the music and lyrics.Read more ›
We have every album she has released and have seen her live on many occasions, she is a legend. Even though we already have the majority of these tracks on our ipods as well as on individual albums this 2 disc set did not disappoint.
There are some brand new tracks on CD1 and if you are not moved by the 1st track, If (When You Go), you have no heart, it is amazing. I have now listened to it 4 times and I still get tears in my eyes. Another recent track, Like the Sun is also one of my current favourites. There are so many good tracks on this album I could go on forever, so I won't, just buy this and find out for yourself, you will love it.
For me this is a great selection of Judie's work and the remixing of some of her older material is cleverly done and doesn't lose any of the original feel. Go for it.
Here we see tracks dating back all the way to her debut album 'Welcome to the Cruise' (originally released on Elton John's Rocket label)right up to the present day with some new songs included. A lot of Judie's more recent material has either been unavailable on cd or only available on her own 'Big Moon' record label which has been sold via her website and at concerts. Here we see some of the songs from this span included alongside the more widely available material.
Highlights for me (and there are many) are 'Stay with me 'til dawn' (a timeless track that everyone has heard - never forget that first 'Top of the Pops' appearance), 'Understanding' (a wonderful song that fans demand Judie sings live!), 'Come hell or waters high' (once performed on Leo Sayer's TV show), 'Bully' (a rousing anthem that Judie's crew help sing along to!), 'Let me be the Pearl' (great guitar solo when played live) and finally 'Sportscar' (another up-tempo number that was the title track of her second Rocket album).
I've knocked off one star for what could have been included and was omitted. Everyone has their favourites but mine would have been the original version of 'How do I feel' from the unavailable 'Ritmo' album, 'Wonderland' and 'I can read books' (from the 'Wonderland' album - the latter featuring a ripping guitar solo from Brian May), 'I'm not a loser' (from 'Shoot the Moon') and finally the fantastic ballad 'I never know where my heart is' (from 'I am the Phoenix'). No tracks from 'The Cat is out' are featured either which is rather odd given the album tour show is available on an excellent DVD.
I have to say the four new tarcks are stunning showcasing how in tune Judie is with today. Leaning is probably my favourite of the tracks and the plaintive If (When you go) is beautiful.
I thought Wonderland could have been included on this collection, but that aside I would urge anyone to go have a listen to Judie Tzuke. She is our hidden gem in this country.

I had a couple of LPs of Judie's bought in the 1980s, obviously to get the wondrous classic Stay With Me Til Dawn. Read more
