Miss Showbusiness SINGS
23 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 1962 special was taped a year after Judy's infamous Carnegie Hall appearance and there are references throughout this wonderful show to that legendary April 1961 event.

Thankfully, CBS (who always stupidly thought Judy needed costars) paired her with Frank and Dean and not some of the nitwits they added to her TV series the next year. This is what "The Judy Garland Show" should've been ... the great Judy singing with other greats.

She sounds a little raw in a few spots, but the voice, in all it's glory, is out there front and center. The opening sequence is her Carnegie Hall overture followed by "Just In Time" and "When You're Smiling" both of which are sung to the RAFTERS. Lovely.

"You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You" with all three legends is absolutely thrilling. The closing sequence is not to be missed. Here she is...the Great One....doing a small piece of her Carnegie Hall act (dressed in similar costume no less!), from "Rockabye Your Baby" to her tour-de-force rendition of "Swanee" ... Where does she get all that POWER. Wow.

I have ALL the Judy stuff and this concert special is one of my very favorites.
