Product Description

2007 two CD set. On June 14, 2006, Rufus Wainwright took to the stage to recreate the Greatest Show of All Time in honor of the Greatest Show of All Time: Judy Garland's legendary 1961 concert at Carnegie Hall. He recreated the entire show song-for-song in the very same venue it was recorded at. Garland fanatics feared a fiasco, but the show was a triumph. His sophisticated act of homage to his hero was both a loving tribute and an arch commentary on the original, featuring classics like 'Over The Rainbow', 'Come Rain Or Come Shine' and 'Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart'. Backed by a 36-piece orchestra and arranged by Broadway's famed Stephen Oremus (Wicked, Avenue Q), Rufus's vocal talent soars over those classic melodies.

Being lucky enough to have seen Rufus Wainwright live this summer, I couldn't wait to get this CD. I still have goosebumps from that show. While it is not (obviously) as enthralling as hearing his great voice and uncanny talent for connecting with his audience for yourself, it is as close to it as one can get. The orchestration is beautiful, the songs are classic, the voice impeccable. A must for any Rufus fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only one thing missing Dec 6 2007
By T. Pileggi - Published on

So wonderful to hear a contemporary singer breathe some new life into the old standards. I love it when performers don't allow themselves to be bound by one genre. This recording has brought all the joy back into my heart that I felt on June 14th up in the balcony of Carnegie Hall. This was no vanity piece - it was performed with heart, soul, love, and just a little wink of the eye. The reviewer who referred to Mr. W.'s vocals as "painful" sounds like a member of the hard-line old school friends of Judy club. Listen to the music, folks. Sure, Rufus has some vocal challenges, but Judy's voice alone was not so stellar all the time either. She warbled, went off pitch sometimes, missed words, messed rhythms. But sang with emotion and meaning and grit and honestly. And Rufus did pretty much the same. I've waited for this cd since the concert ended. My only disappointment is that Rufus' rendition of Every Time We Say Goodbye was left off the cd. This was one of the most glorious and poignant moments of the concert, and frankly the song I was most looking forward to on cd. But, hey, it will likely turn up on a bootleg or maybe even an official release. As for the cd - buy it. It is a loving tribute to one of the great ones. While you're at it, buy hers as well.

By Diane A. Barrie - Published on

I saw Rufus Wainwright's Hollywood Bowl version of Judy at Carnegie Hall in 2007 During the first number I became somewhat doubtful that his show would carry the impact I wanted it to for my pleasure. As he progressed through the show I found I was intrigued by his performance. His voice isn't of the belting variety by any means, but I found it truthful, gentle, and at times, perfect for the number he was doing. The album did the same thing to me. The more I listened the more I wanted to hear. The sincerity of his performance locked me in.
