Description

    50-Year retrospective compilation album COLOURS OF MY LIFE, a compilation of specially handpicked tracks representing her albums through the decades. With tracks personally selected by Judith, it includes her very first recording (before she joined The Seekers full time) Moan You Mourners, one of the biggest Seekers hits, Georgy Girl, her solo hit The Olive Tree, trad jazz with her late husband Ron Edgeworth and their band, a track from her new album Epiphany, a very moving solo rendition of the Seekers' hit The Carnival is Over recorded live at London's Royal Festival Hall on her 60th birthday, as well as, of course, the title track of this collection Colours Of My Life (which she co-wrote for The Seekers). Judith also recorded two albums for A&M/Universal in the US and UK, and three tracks from these appear on CD for the first time, including Skyline Pigeon (with Elton John playing the piano) and a truly inspiring version of 'The Sound of Music' hit, Climb Ev'ry Mountain. Says Elton John: "Judith Durham, like Karen Carpenter and Eva Cassidy, possesses the purest voice in popular music. When she recorded one of my songs [Skyline Pigeon], I was so flattered and loved her version. She made the song her own - a very enviable talent." Significantly, six of the 22 tracks have never before been released on CD. The album will be packaged with a DVD, being a 25-minute retrospective of her life, aired as part of the 2010 ABC's series "Talking Heads" with Peter Thompson.
