A Maid of Constant Sorrow is a 1961 album, the debut of Judy Collins, released by Elektra Records and featuring traditional folk songs. Collins' voice and guitar are sparsely accompanied by Fred Hellerman and Walter Raim on second guitar, Erik Darling on banjo, and Bill Lee on bass. The title song is a variant of "Man of Constant Sorrow"; the original song appeared on Bob Dylan's debut album that came out the following year. The selections range from the Scottish anthem Wild Mountain Thyme to the Irish standards Bold Fenian Men and The Prickilie Bush. The album also includes more obscure numbers such as Tim Evans, Wars of Germany and John Riley.
Sister of Holly Collins.
She is the subject of the famous song "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes", written by Stephen Stills and performed by Crosby Stills Nash & Young.
Living the dream. One mistake at a time.
A comedy about the experiences of a group of girls in their early 20s.
I am thrilled to have been able to put together this new album. I listened to everything I had recorded in the 24 years with Elektra, and then just took all the ones I am mad about.
I am just glad that I can take the music to the people who want to hear it. I love my audiences. I am deeply indebted to them for giving me the chance to sing my concerts, make records, and do what I love. Whatever people call it, it is great to have a voice!
