  1. Hypnotic song. Saw her perform it at Hiram Johnson High School Auditorium in 1969 --had comps. Listened, applauded. She knew --"well, maybe next year"-- she knew.

  2. Always a delight to hear. We were fortunate to see her perform. The voice of an angel.

    2. Just listened to it..on . Well, if you are of a certain age, past my current 71, maybe. If one doesn't like the pure voice quality that Collins put into it, maybe. But John, I must disagree. She did a nice version, but more for my father's generation than mine.

  5. Ah Judy Collins and a great song. See, you do have something to thank El Trumpo for.

    1. I thank him for nothing, Collins sang that song while he was pulling prep school pranks.

    (Triggered memory: I convinced my band director to let us play this as the homecoming court entered the football field.)
