JSP, which also released the four-disc collection "Judy Garland – The Lost Tracks" last year, is behind the re-release of the best-selling 1961 album. JSP Records head John Stedman will produce the album, which is aiming for an early 2012 release in the UK.
The double-CD set will reflect the same track order as the original 1961 LP release. The album, which captured one of Garland's most triumphant concert appearances, includes such signature songs as "The Man That Got Away," "Come Rain or Come Shine," "That's Entertainment" and "Over the Rainbow."
"Judy at Carnegie Hall," recorded by Capitol Records on April 23, 1961, earned five Grammy Awards and spent 95 weeks on the charts (13 of which were in the No. 1 slot).
The JSP release will have new liner notes by Lawrence Schulman. Peter Rynston will remaster from the original LP, with Andrew Aitken designing the artwork.
As previously reported, the New York Pops will pay tribute to the legendary concert, with a recreation of the one-night-only event on March 11 at Carnegie Hall. Tony Award winners Karen Olivo, Heather Headley and Drama Desk nominee Ashley Brown will perform. Visit JSPRecords.
