Joe Luft appears on the At Large program, 1974.
Thanks to this sound upgraded recording, we can now actually HEAR Judy bring down the house with Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart and out croon Sinatra on Embraceable You when she perfumed on Sinatra's Vimm's Vitamins sponsored radio program. Also heard are Jerry Lester Joe Pasternak, Walter Pidgeon, and George Sidney. Originally broadcast on May 24, 1944.
Somebody recently donated an upgraded copy of the bootleg recording of Judy's 1967 Palace opening night to TJGE library and it struck me that the bootleg reveals a richness and body to Judy's singing voice that is missing from the professional recording of the concert. Here are two versions of I Feel A Song Coming On, both recorded at the same time and in the same venue, but dang if they don't have completely different feels.

Per a request, Judy Garland live at Chicago's Arie Crown Theater. May, 1965.
Judy sings and makes a plea for social service programs that benefit the community. Today she would probably be accused of trying to promote socialism and entitlements....I love how Judy is introduced as "Academy Award winner..."
