Judy Garland Celebrated With Universal Music Enterprises Remastered Vinyl Reissues of Three Classic Albums

Judy Garland is one of America's cherished show business icons, an international superstar who went from singing her way into our hearts as a child star in The Wizard of Oz crooning "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" to winning a juvenile Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a special Tony and numerous GRAMMYs® during the course of her more than 40 years as a performer up until her death at the age of 47 in June, 1969.

Universal Music Enterprises celebrates Judy Garland's incredible legacy with a trio of remastered, 180-gram vinyl reissues of her greatest albums, including two-LP versions of both the 1965 "Live" at the London Palladium with daughter Liza Minnelli and the 1961 Judy at Carnegie Hall, along with a single disc of the 1955 studio album Miss Show Business are all available now.

The 50th anniversary edition of "Live" at the London Palladium features Garland and daughter Minnelli performing separately and together on two discs, joining forces on "Hello, Dolly!," "Together (Wherever We Go)," "When the Saints Go Marching In," "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" and several medleys.  The new two-disc vinyl version of the album, which originally peaked at #41 on the Billboard 200 after its 1965 release, includes new liner notes written by Liza Minnelli.

Originally released in 1965, Judy at Carnegie Hall will also be reissued as two, remastered 180-gram vinyl discs, with new liner notes penned by Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally (Kiss of the Spider Woman, Ragtime).  This classic album captures Garland's performance at New York's fabled Carnegie Hall on April 23, 1961, dubbed "the greatest night in show business history," marking her remarkable comeback from health problems. The album was a cultural phenomenon, spending 73 weeks on the Billboard charts, including 13 weeks at #1, eventually certified gold, winning four GRAMMY® Awards, including Best Album of the Year (the first live recording and first female release to do so), Best Female Vocal Performance, Best Album Cover and Best Engineered Album. In 2003, it was one of 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry.

In addition, Miss Show Business will be reissued in a remastered, single-disc 180-gram vinyl 60th Anniversary edition with new liner notes contributed by Judy's daughter Lorna Luft. This studio album, originally released in 1955 on Capitol Records, peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200, and features definitive versions of classics like "Rockabye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody,"  "After You've Gone," and "Over the Rainbow."
