I fell in love with Judy Collins and her voice in 1964. When I heard her sing last night, I could only think, it’s 1963 all over again. Judy’s voice is still glorious and her stage presence and rapport with the audience was better than ever. Great stories and incites. She also had this other singer with her and when she and Steven Stills sang a duet of Suite Judy Blue Eyes to end the night, I was in heaven.
Solo performance, essentially, with one pianist/vocal backup. Her soaring voice of old is still there, even the highest of her magnificent soprano range. A superb concert, 90 minutes of Sweet Judy Blue Eyes. You should've been there.
Judy is still in excellent voice, and great humor. The beauty of her singing is undiminished. Her paring with Stephen Stills was an inspired, emotional, and satisfying choice. It was an enjoyable and satisfying evening, and I would love to see them tour again.
