Songwriter David Buskin camped out with Jamie deRoy and us at The Carlyle to hear the legendary singer/songwriter Judy Collins at her opening show at Cafe Carlyle last night. David has had his songs recorded by Ms. Collins and was on hand with a room full of fans to cheer Judy at her return to the Cafe. “Jews Don’t Camp” the “mega hit” recorded by Jamie deRoy was also written by David Buskin. For this engagement Judy brought along a special guest, Ari Hest, who has the distinction of being the only artist to ever jointly record an album with Judy Collins. The album titled Silver Skies Blue contains songs that were co-written and sung by Ari and Judy. Judy’s fans were not disappointed, as her song list in addition to her collaborative efforts with Ari Hest contained Chelsea Morning, Mr. Tambourine Man, Born To The Breed, and Send In The Clowns among other signature songs. At the end of the show Judy thanked the staff for helping to make her look & sound like “Judy Collins”and although support is helpful, anyone in the audience realized that Judy Collins still possess all the skills that have made her a legend.
