Rufus does Judy at Carnegie Hall by Rufus Wainwright( Recording )

16 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rufus Wainwright has never been afraid of the extravagant gesture, so in the summer of 2006, the singer-songwriter booked a special engagement at Carnegie Hall, complete with a full orchestra and special guests, for the express purpose of recreating Judy Garland's iconic 1961 comeback album, JUDY AT CARNEGIE HALL, in its entirety. Although in both graphic design and Wainwright's choice of outfits for the concert (as seen on the DVD RUFUS! RUFUS! RUFUS! DOES JUDY! JUDY! JUDY!, available separately), care was taken to evoke the overall look and feel of Garland's original concert, Wainwright smartly avoids trying to sound like Garland. Still, his semi-operatic vocal style is a perfect vehicle for these classic pre-rock Tin Pan Alley and Broadway songs. Guests include sister Martha Wainwright, mother Kate McGarrigle, and on a lovely version of "After You've Gone," Garland's youngest daughter Lorna Luft
