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.
Ms. Collins was in very fine form, sang wonderfully & looked like a Goddess. She & Stephen Stills had a crack band accompanying them though Mr. Stills seemed to have a bit of a rough night of it playing guitar. At times it was quite distracting but more concerning about his ability these days. Over all though, it was great to see them playing together again.
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.
