Judy's beginnings, 5 Mar. 2003
While I have long been familiar with Judy Collins from her work in the '70s, this twofer ... was a real find ... Particularly of note are the many Irish and Scots traditional songs featured on AMOCS and GAOTS--JC's reading of "The Rising of the Moon" is a most different take from what most would be familiar with (e.g. The Dubliners and/or The Clancy Brothers), which were more rousing, on-your-feet-and-fight-for-old-Ireland versions. This one illustrates more definitely the fate of the men involved in the 1798 Rising--bitter and a tad menacing.
On the whole, very much worth checking out.
