Forever: An Anthology

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
=Forever: An Anthology= is a good but flawed double-disc overview of Judy Collins' long, prolific and productive career at Elektra/Asylum Records. Over the course of 35 tracks, nearly all of Collins' best-known songs are showcased "Someday Soon," "Who Knows Where the Time Goes," "Send in the Clowns," "Both Sides Now," "Hard Lovin' Loser," "Amazing Grace". Scattered throughout the collection are four new songs -- including, inexplicably, a re-recorded version of "Chelsea Morning" -- that may not live up to the quality of her classic songs, but still are quite strong. It might have been more appealing if the songs were sequenced in chronological order, and if "Chelsea Morning" was present in its original version, but...

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
Judy Collins has one of folk music's most lovely and distinctive voices -- and one of its most adventurous tastes in music. This two-disc, 35-song set isn't a chronological history of her career, but the songs chosen by Collins herself cover the territory of her past with cuts from the traditional folk music of her earliest discs "Maid of Constant Sorrow" as well as tracks in which she was an early champion of singer-songwriters Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne," Ian Tyson's "Someday Soon," Richard Farina's "Hard Lovin' Loser," Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now". There are several pieces from her less folky musical explorations, including "Send In the Clowns." And although she's a marvelous interpreter, Collins also includes some of her own songs, among them the powerful "Born to the Breed" and the lesser-known "The Fallow Way." The liner notes booklet which is filled with pictures that will certainly bring back memories for Collins's longtime fans and the songs themselves trace the winding path of Collins's musical journey, now almost four decades long. It's a melodic, entrancing trip.
