"Garland is in fabulous voice here… the singer’s amazing ability to welcome any audience into her world, and give them a two-hour-plus concert blatantly showed the strength of her desire to entertain, and the ultimate level of comfort that she had when on stage"
"This live set was recorded by Dutch radio four months before New York with Garland in excellent voice and sounding incredibly relaxed and playful." ****
“Excellent notes by Jonathan Summers detail the singer’s stay in Holland as well as revealing some dramatic happenings regarding the concert arrangements and overall this is a release that deserves wide approval”
In-Tune International Magazine
“ ...an invaluable document of her artistry in this pre-Carnegie period… the British label has once again done a superlative job in restoring and reissuing this fifty-two year old recording…”
"Listening to it today is a spellbinding experience recreated to be as magical as the listening to it "live" in that coveted audience 50 years ago."
""Judy Garland in Amsterdam" is a unique and thoroughly enjoyable time capsule. The oft used phrase "You are there" is apropos here. Judy Garland fans will rejoice, as this 2-CD release finally presents her 1960 Amsterdam concert complete and remastered from the original tapes... In short the CD is beautifully produced, and the liner notes by Jonathan Summers thoroughly detail Judy’s time in Holland and the sometimes dramatic circumstances of the concert. This is yet another ’must have’."
The Judy Room
"Judy Garland never treated life or work like it was a dress rehearsal. For Judy, it always had to be a full out, no holds barred performance, with encores! And that spirit, and sense of joie de vivre, can be heard on the latest Garland release from First Hand Records”
