Suite: Judy blue eyes

Our radio hero Hugh Hewitt went to see Judy Collins and David Crosby perform Sunday night, and has made me feel a little better about the musicians I loved in my addled youth: “Judy blue eyes: What the left sees.” Hugh describes Crosby and Collins singing “In My Life” together to close the show. Judy Collins’ best of all her many albums (you know, you used to put them on record players) was 1966’s “In My Life,” drawing on popular music from Kurt Weill and Jacques Brel to Bob Dylan and the Beatles. (Her best vocal performance ever was on her version of the song “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?” from her 1968 album of the same name; she stole every lick of that performance from the song’s composer, Sandy Denny. But her version of the song was put to poignant use in the magnificent film version of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “The Subject Was Roses,” written by Dartmouth alum Frank Gilroy.)
