Forever: An Anthology

Forever: An Anthology

by Judy Collins



=Forever: An Anthology= is a good but flawed double-disc overview of {Judy Collins'} long, prolific and productive career at Elektra/Asylum Records. Over the course of 35 tracks, nearly all of {Collins'} best-known songs are showcased ("Someday Soon," "Who Knows Where the Time Goes," "Send in the Clowns," "Both Sides Now," "Hard Lovin' Loser," "Amazing Grace"). Scattered throughout the collection are four new songs -- including, inexplicably, a re-recorded version of "Chelsea Morning" -- that may not live up to the quality of her classic songs, but still are quite strong. It might have been more appealing if the songs were sequenced in chronological order, and if "Chelsea Morning" was present in its original version, but =Forever: An Anthology= remains an ideal compilation for the serious {Collins} fan. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All-Music Guide
