Recorded in October 1960, this album brings together Judy Garland's only performances in Paris. A child star with a tragic destiny, a singer, dancer and actress with talents as different as they were unbelievable, Garland was no doubt the first modern star of international pop. This live album contains recordings made with a philharmonic orchestra and as a bonus a concert at Amsterdam's Tuschinski Theatre in December 1960. Garland, the great American star, was made immortal by her famous role as Dorothy in The Wizard Of Oz, and she was then in the firmament of her career as a singer. And here you can find her period version of the smash hit «Over the Rainbow," which made her world-famous. The Live in Paris collection by Michel Brillié allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song. These "live" takes, and the artists' rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet album standards while preserving the original colors of the period.
