Product Description

2012 two CD set. Speech Project is an album of new compositions by Gerry Diver featuring exclusive spoken word contributions from Christy Moore, Paddy Moloney, Martin Hayes and Danny Meehan. Archive interviews from Margaret Barry and Joe Cooley also feature in the compositions. Whilst listening to a recorded interview of the late great accordion player Joe Cooley, Gerry noticed that the voice sounded like it was in the key of B flat minor and there also seemed to be a slip jig rhythm to Joe's voice. Gerry put the interview into his apple mac and teased out the faint 'pitch' tones and rhythms in Joe's voice ...these musical hues formed the basis for two new pieces;' When in New York' and 'Old Time Musicians

HASH(0xa0534b7c) out of 5 stars Judy At Carnegie Hall...the Musical Document on CD March 8 2012
By L. Steidl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
So it appears we've come full circle with the legendary recording "Judy At Carnegie Hall", just released by JSP Records. So much has been written, both about the concert itself and the phenomenal live recording and it's immense impact on our popular culture. Garland was at one of her peak vocal periods when she stepped on that hallowed stage, and thankfully Capitol was at hand to preserve it all. Released first on vinyl, it's initial releases on compact disc botched horribly by Capitol until DCC (then Capitol for the concerts 2001 40th anniversary) released the complete, start-to-finish-every scrap of applause, every note Garland sang and every brilliant annecdote told to her adoring audience that 23rd of April 1961. So why do we need another version of this performance released? Reason being is that the original, mono vinyl version, the musical document that spent 95 weeks on Billboard's Top 200 chart, 13 of those weeks at #1, winning 5 Grammys including Best Album & Female Vocal, has never seen the light of day on compact disc......and that's what we have here with this newest release of the Carnegie performance. I am grateful beyond words that we have BOTH the HISTORICAL document, and this...the MUSICAL document of that evening. While I will always cherish the complete versions, I've always missed not having the album I grew up with.....the album concentrating on Garland's music and vocal artistry, strong and undiluted, without extended applause and chatter. If I have one bit of a complaint, it's that JSP has not used the stereo version, but the original mono that was first released. Being mono, one will notice that the sound lacks the dynamic range and nuances of the Capitol 2001 version, being quite "punchy" and "boxy". Small irritant for the musical richness contained on these two discs.
Which versions to own? Garland admires will, and should, own both......the more casual novice will love the uninterrupted Garland performance of the new JSP version but might be put off by the constricted audio quality. Either way, one and all will experience musical and theatrical brilliance that simply does not exist today, and I'm afraid never will again.

HASH(0xa0534bd0) out of 5 stars Judy's opus...as it was originally intended to be heard Feb. 15 2012
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was my first time listening to the "original release format." The quality is outstanding and listening to it in mono gives it a totally different feeling. I became a big-time fan in the late 1990s, so I grew up with the original 2-CD set and it wasn't until the internet era that I found out about this album's immense history. Now I've heard every released version, from the 2-LP set, the abridged CD, to the remaster done almost a decade ago. It's hard to believe that fans didn't get Judy's fantastic "Oh my!" before "When You're Smiling."

The liner notes are very nicely written by Scott Brogan, owner of The Judy Room Website. It's a nice package, but I don't care for the ticket cover. The packaging, however, is tastefully done. Each CD is housed in its own case with a different cover in each.

For those of you that never had the experience to listen to the original album, as out of sequence as it is and the "Alone Together" fiasco---it's definitely worth the listen!

HASH(0xa05be024) out of 5 stars Best Live Album Ever ,,, all additions/quality improvements too Feb. 16 2012
By Robert Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you have never heard this album in its complete version, with Judy's wonderful asides and anecdotes, you're missing out. If, on the other hand, you have simply never heard this album ... you haven't lived, quite. Thank God we have it.

No one beats Judy Garland - absolutely no one past, present, or future. This the the best album ever. If you buy one Judy Garland CD let this one be the one.

HASH(0xa05be39c) out of 5 stars If you really want to hear the greatest concert ever recorded April 16 2015
By Diane G. Escobar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The "original mono"? How ridiculous is that? Someone took their vinyl album, copied it and released it? Isn't that the very definition of piracy? If you really want to hear the greatest concert ever recorded, with great quality, then buy the official Capitol release of Judy At Carnegie Hall, 40th Anniversary Edition. Don't buy this sad knockoff.
