You just start to think you know Judith Durham
as an artist and she
surprises you, yet again.
reneged on her
classical piano world and the possibility of a career in opera or musical theatre when she
exuberantly embraced the teenage cult music of the day in the early Sixties.
shows us on these vintage tracks, recorded in the early Seventies, how easily she
transforms that golden voice to carry the music of the Twenties and Thirties for trad jazz aficionados into the Millennium on two albums recorded with bands she
cofounded in San Francisco and in London with her
late husband, brilliant pianist and arranger Ron Edgeworth.
Fans have begged, stolen and borrowed to replace their worn-out vinyls over the past four decades, and here they are again at last on a glorious 2CD set Judith Durham
'The Hottest Band In Town Collection' (comprising Judith Durham
& The Hottest Band In Town and Judith Durham
& The Hottest Band In Town Volume 2) featuring seven of Judith's own compositions and four bonus, never-before-released collector's tracks.
o The songs Judith
chose for, Gift Of Song were sourced from writers in England and America and the meaningful and heartfelt subject matter gives a hint of the direction her
developing solo career would take later, now spanning every genre, even as a songwriter herself.
o This album, with its cover depicting Judith
on the brink of marriage, is a pivotal moment in time captured in this remastered 30ips recording of a voice which has defied adequate description since it was first heard all over the world.
It all started back in 1972 when Judith and her late husband, pianist Ron Edgeworth, drove from San Francisco to Boston.
With a large map on her
was struck by how many cities in America had become famous globally through songs like New York, New York … California, Here I Come … I Left My Heart In San Francisco … Chicago …Oklahoma … Massachusetts … Galveston … Georgia On My Mind … compared with so few in Australia.
Right then and there, Judith
decided to write a little song for her
own hometown Melbourne, Seldom Melbourne Leaves My Mind … "seldom" being the only word she
could think of that (almost) rhymed with Melbourne!
Judith rose to the challenge and the rest of the 'Suite' took shape - with Sydney, Girl Of My Dreams … Meet Me In The Mall In Brisbane … Happy Years I Spent In Hobart … Darwin Is Da Winner … Adelaide You're Beautiful … When Perth Is On The East Side … a playful look at the national capital Australia's Canberra … Our Town came from Judith's musical Gotta Be Rainbows to represent communities and townships in every corner of the nation … Judith's lyric for contemporary Australia Judith Durham's Advance Australia Fair … and, the icing on the cake, her
love song for the nation Australia Land Of Today.
'Suite' is a fundraiser for the hundreds of charities supported by the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation
, including the Motor Neurone Disease Association
and Orchestra Victoria.
It is Judith's way of giving something back to the country that has taken her
to its heart.
