Judy Garland the Final Concert in Copenhagen

“she is one of the truly great in show business. ... a captivating experience.”

Berlinske Tidende, Copenhagen (review of concert)

New restoration from original tapes With this release, HDTT celebrates the 2022 centennial of Judy Garland’s birth with the first complete release of her final public concert, which is also the first release of any live Garland concert in high-definition sound. This release is based on HDTT’s new high-definition digitizations of two independent, superior quality original recordings of the concert—a triumphant occasion fully demonstrating that she still had “it.” One recording is a set of two tapes prepared by Danmarks Radio for the subsequent broadcast of much of the concert a few days after it occurred (tapes privately owned by Lawrence Schulman, who wrote the liner notes for this release), based on that station’s live recordings made in the hall at the concert. The other recording is a high-quality tape-recorded in the hall by the hall itself (original tape privately owned by John H. Haley of Harmony Restorations, LLC, who restored the instant release for HDTT). Fortuitously, having both excellent sources available has allowed the first complete release of this concert.
