The London Studio Recordings was such a great success that Jonathon Summers and First Hand Records have decided to team up again to give Judy's famous 1960 midnight concert in Amsterdam it's first "official" release.
Considering the care and class this group brought to their last Garland recording this is very exciting news. I can't wait to hear the cleaned up and remastered version of this concert, not to mention the exciting "extras" that will be included on the disc.
The recording will also be made available for digital downloading.
From FHR's upcoming press release:
"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."
