Just saw this on PBS, and I was blown away. I'm used to seeing Judy on her CBS show, which premiered the next year - with her voice sometimes showing the strain of years of abuse. But in this color special, she is in outstanding voice. The big notes are strong and clear, and she belts them like there was no tomorrow. If you want to see what Judy was like at the peak of her concert career, this is the tape to own.

Judy sings: Just in Time, When You're Smiling, Let There Be Love, You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You, The Man That Got Away, among others, and then closes with a classic medley of: You Made Me Love You, The Trolley Song, Rock-a-Bye Your Baby, Swanee, and San Francisco.

Oh yeah, there are two guys named Frank and Dean who also sing some numbers with her...
