Judy Collins: Living

Ellen Sander, Saturday Review, 27 November 1971

NO ONE would argue that Wildflowers and In My Life are classic albums; sheer, strong marriages of new art music and new classicism, ambitious and successful interpretations of some of the best contemporary material available, by an artist who brought the times around to her visions with those albums. Living, Judy Collins's newest album (Elektra stereo, EKS-75014, $5.98; 8-track, ET85014, $6.98; cassette, TC-55014, $6.98), is her most elegant since Wildflowers and In My Life, and in very different ways it approaches and surpasses both of them.
