First Hand Records has presented us with sneak peak at what’s in store for us in the first official release of Judy’s 1960 Midnight Amsterdam concert. It sounds amazing! Along with the sneak peak First Hand Records gave us more information on the release:
After the resounding success of Judy Garland - The London Studio Recordings, 1957-1964 (FHR12), First Hand Records and producer Jonathan Summers are proud to present the first legitimate release of the World’s Greatest Entertainer in her celebrated concert at the Tuschinski Theatre in Amsterdam. The midnight performance of 10 December 1960 was broadcast live by AVRO, the Dutch radio network and these original tapes have been licensed to FHR for remastering and release on compact disc and digital download.
This release will include the full programme of 30 songs as performed by Garland plus interviews with Garland, Sid Luft and conductor Norrie Paramor. The booklet will be lavishly illustrated with photographs of Garland performing on stage at the Tuschinski Theatre.
Garland was at the peak of her career here, only four months after the London Studio Recordings and four months before the famous Carnegie Hall concert.
This special priced 2CD jewel case issue will be released in Autumn/Fall 2012 and copies can be purchased two weeks prior to its official release date at a further discounted price direct from the FHR website.
