All The Emmy-nominated Judy Garland Show ended its critically-acclaimed CBS-TV run after just one season (1963-64). Today, those 26 variety shows are revered by many as the entertainment icon's finest work. Singing then-new material as well as the classics expected of her, this is the legendary Judy at her peak. Also featured in volume one of this 13-volume collector's set is daughter Liza Minnelli, now a legend in her own right. Then just 17, Liza sings her off-Broadway hit "You Are for Loving" and displays her renowned ability as a dancer on "Put on a Happy Face." Liza and Judy shine in the duets "Together," "We Could Make Such Beautiful Music Together," "The Best is Yet to Come," "Bye, Bye, Baby" and "Bob White"; and revive the "We're a Couple of Swells" tramp characters from Easter Parade. Also featured in a dazzling display of song, dance and comedy are jazz greats Count Basie and his band and Mel Torme, who perform solo and join the great Garland on such stunners as "I Hear Music," "The Sweetest Sounds," "Strike Up the Band," "April in Paris" and "Memories of You"; folk singer Judy Henske; and series regular Jerry Van Dyke who trades quips with Soupy Sales. Judy also sings "A Cottage for Sale," "Hey, Look Me Over," "Liza," "As Long as He Needs Me," and "Come Rain or Come Shine," a highlight of Judy's 45-year career. Restored and digitally remastered from the original masters, this dynamic diva will move you like no one else! Look for all 13 volumes, each featuring two hour-long shows.
