Four decades after her death, interest in Judy Garland is at an all-time high. One of the 20th century's signature talents, Garland continues to fascinate and inspire with her unique combination of vocal chops and dazzling personality. The Very Best Of Judy Garland includes a couple of alternate takes ("Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and "Yah-Ta-Ta, Yah-Ta-Ta," a slippery comic duet with Bing Crosby) as well as the landmark versions of "Over the Rainbow," "You Made Me Love You," "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart," "The Trolley Song," "Blues in the Night," and "I Got Rhythm" that have forever ensured Garland's reputation as one of the all-time great swinging belters. But on Very Best the ballads are equally astonishing: "Our Love Affair," "The Boy Next Door," "Embraceable You," and "How About You?" prove that Garland's torch burned hotter than an August heatwave. This well-selected, crisply produced 20-track collection does justice to Garland's ongoing legacy.
