The Info List - Judy At Carnegie Hall





Judy at Carnegie Hall
Carnegie Hall
is a two-record live recording of a concert by Judy Garland
Judy Garland
at Carnegie Hall
Carnegie Hall
in New York, with backing orchestra led by Mort Lindsey. This concert appearance, on the night of Sunday April 23, 1961, has been called "the greatest night in show business history".[2] Garland's live performances were big successes at the time and her record company wanted to capture that energy onto a recording. The double album became a hit, both critically and commercially. The album won the Grammy Award
Grammy Award
for Album of the Year, making Garland the first woman to win the award. Garland's career had moved from movies in the 1940s, to vaudeville and elaborate stage shows in the 1950s. She also suffered from drug and alcohol abuse, and, by 1959, had become overweight and ill and needed extensive medical treatment. After a long convalescence, weight loss, and vocal rest, she returned in 1960 to the concert stage with a simple program of "just Judy". Garland's 1960–1961 tour of Europe and North America was a success, and her stage presence was highly regarded. Eventually Garland was billed as "The World's Greatest Entertainer". Audiences were documented as leaving their seats and crowding around the stage to be closer to Garland, and often called her back for encore after encore, even asking her to repeat a song after her book of arrangements was completed.

Accolades[edit] The double album was an enormous best seller, charting for 73 weeks on the Billboard charts, including 13 weeks at number one, and being certified gold. It won four Grammy Awards, for Album of the Year (the first live music album and the first album by a female performer to win the award), Best Female Vocal Performance, Best Engineered Album, and Best Album Cover.[3] The album has never been out of print. In 2003, the album was one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress
Library of Congress
to be added to the National Recording Registry. In June 2006, Rufus Wainwright

did his own homage to Judy's night by recreating the concert in its entirety at Carnegie Hall, with Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall, released as album in December 2007. Track listing[edit]

2001 Compact Disc release[edit] In 2001, Capitol released "Judy at Carnegie Hall" as a double Compact Disc set (catalog number 72435-72876-2-3). This edition has the songs in their original running order, and includes material that was not on the original LP set: Garland's monologues and comments to the audience and orchestra; the orchestra preparing for the next number; and a false start on "Come Rain or Come Shine." These "extras" usually appear at the end of most of the tracks. The CD release purports to reproduce the concert as the Carnegie Hall
Carnegie Hall
audience heard it, "warts and all." Charts[edit]
