A consummate folksinger from the very beginning, Judy Collins is heard here on her first two albums, fully remastered and appearing here on one disc. On her 1961 debut A Maid of Constant Sorrow, the four-time Grammy winner sings Ewan MacColl's "Tim Evans," as well as such traditional tunes as "Pretty Saro," "Wild Mountain Thyme," "Bold Fenian Men," "John Riley," and the title track. From 1962, Golden Apples of the Sun showcases Collins's growing confidence as an interpreter of songs on "Fannerio," "Sing Hallelujah," "Tell Me Who I'll Marry," "Bonnie Ship the Diamond," "Shule Aroon," "Lark in the Morning," and a forceful cover of Reverend Gary Davis's "Twelve Gates to the City."
