ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Album BackThis is the last legitimate original release of a Garland concert. Recorded during the first three nights of Judy's third and final Palace appearance from July 31, 1967 through August 26, 1967, the album was rushed out by ABC Records on August 15, 1967, while Judy was still appearing there.

Judy's outfit for the concert is her famous "pantsuit" originally designed for her aborted role in Valley Of The Dolls. She would wear the pantsuit A LOT.

The album states that it's "Opening Night", which is partly true. All the tracks on Side One are from opening night, while the tracks on Side Two are culled from the recordings made the second and third nights.

Judy had recently signed a contract with ABC Records, through the Sid Luft Production company "Group Five" (or "Group V" as shown on the album cover). Group Five was a production company Judy and Sid formed in June of 1967. Judy thought the "Five" would be herself, Sid, and Liza, Lorna and Joe. In fact, the "Five" were Sid, Ray Filibertti and three of Filiberti's associates. "Group Five" listed Judy and Sid as employees, for tax purposes, but the company did not provide Judy with the financial security she had hoped it would.

Sadly, the master tapes from the three nights of recording are lost. Only the master tapes of the final album are known to exist. MCA currently holds the rights but has yet to release the album on CD.
