Judy Garland – like her Gemini sister in celebrity Marilyn Monroe – just keeps rolling along, though it is 36 years since Judy’s demise. On June 14, Savoy Jazz will release “That Old Feeling,” a collection of ballads culled from Judy’s short-lived but acclaimed TV series. Among the heartbreakers included are “What’ll I Do?” “A Cottage For Sale,” “Too Late Now,” “Here’s That Rainy Day,” as well as the famous duet with Barbra Streisand. This is another Garland project put together by writer/TV producer/historian John Fricke. He won an Emmy for last year’s PBS American Masters special on Garland. How ironic that the TV series, the failure of which destroyed Judy, has become the basis of a new appreciation of her mature talent. Just as the footage assembled from “Something’s Got to Give” showed “washed-up” Marilyn Monroe as anything but. Somewhere over the rainbow, Miss G. and MM are, I hope, having the last hearty laugh.
