Two New Albums From Judith Durham Released April 27
Continuing the celebration of Judith Durham’s 50th anniversary in the music industry, Universal Music Australia proudly joins forces with Musicoast for the release of two exciting new albums. Following the success of Judith’s 2011 self-penned album ‘Epiphany’ (her 10th solo album), and her 50 Year Retrospective ‘Colours Of My Life’, comes Judith’s magnum opus ‘The Australian Cities Suite’.
Available April 27, this is an album for all Australians, with words and music composed and sung by one of our national treasures.
It’s for families to enjoy in celebration of their own special corner of Australia, and to hand down from generation to generation, as well as for “those who come across the seas”.
Melodious and rhythmic, emotional and fun, throughout this stunning body of work Judith’s golden voice joins forces with the magnificent Orchestra Victoria under the baton of conductor and arranger Kevin Hocking.
Recorded at Melbourne’s ABC Iwaki Auditorium, the music reverberates with a beauty and magic that is timeless and innocent. These are the kind of songs that will live in our hearts to always reinforce the love each of us feels for our own home town. When listening to this beautiful ‘Suite’, both now and in years to come, Judith’s songs will evoke childhood memories and the heartaches and loves we still cherish.
Simultaneously, Universal is proud to release on CD for the first time, Judith’s ‘Gift Of Song’ album. Only ever previously available on vinyl and recorded for A&M Records in Hollywood in 1969, Judith was again venturing into the world as a solo recording artist having achieved superstardom as lead singer with global chart-toppers The Seekers.
The eleven tracks include the classic God Bless’ The Child, Patti Ingals’ Gift Of Song, the rousing gospel, I Wish I Knew, the peaceful protest song There’s A Baby and a bitter-sweet ballad by Harry Nilsson, Wailing Of The Willow.
