Folk Icon Judy Collins Releases A New 2CD Career Retrospective With Guest Appearances By Joan Baez And Stephen Stills!

Includes her most beloved songs and interpretations such as “Send In The Clowns,” “Cat’s In The Cradle,” “Both Sides Now,” “Amazing Grace” and many more!

Her distinguished voice carried a troubled nation through one of the most tumultuous decade of the 20th century, and continued to inspire millions of music fans for many decades to come. Now, the magnificent Judy Collins proudly presents a new collection of timeless classics, 28 gorgeous songs on 2CDs, that capture both the breadth and depth of Collins’ vast catalog of original songs and unforgettable interpretations. With superb guest performances by fellow folk icons Joan Baez and Stephen Stills (of Crosby Stills & Nash), Both Sides Now - The Very Best Of will be made available on November 4 courtesy of Wildflower Records in association with Cleopatra Records, Inc.

As its title suggests, this wonderful collection showcases both sides of Judy Collins’ extraordinary talent as both a gifted songwriter as well as a skilled interpreter of other’s material. “My Father” and “Albatross” are excellent examples of Collins’ distinctive song-craft - intimate, melodic, and profoundly emotional. These very same qualities have also helped Collins breathe new life into such standards as “Send In The Clowns,” “Amazing Grace, and “Over The Rainbow” truly making these well-known favorites her own. Fans young and old, newcomers and loyal backers alike, will find a lot to love and even more cherish on this incredible compilation!
