Rufus Wainwright - Rufus Does Judy at Carneige Hall
I heard about these Rufus Does Judy shows from a friend and instantly decided I’d purchase the recorded result (I knew one was coming). One, I’d seen Wainwright sing “I Wonder What Became of Me” on Stormy Weather: The Music of Harold Arlen, and had a strong emotional connection to his performance, and two, I knew I’d get more of the same from his recreation of Judy Garland’s landmark show from April 1961 (dubbed by oldster critics as the “greatest night in show biz history”). Since I love torchy pop standards, lush string arrangements and haunting vocals I knew RDJACH would fulfill that need, but at the same time I’m not a fan of the “That’s Entertainment”-style show tunes Judy sang, so I realized I’d end up with some of that also. It put me into a bit of a quandary.
