Turn Turn Turn 45 by Judy Collins

Judy Collins has been a constant on the American music scene for almost 50 years. She began as one of the important figures in the early 1960’s folk revival. She gradually evolved into a traditiional pop artist as the years passed.

“Turn Turn Turn” was a folk tune written by Pete Seeger with words taken from the Bible. It has been covered by many artists over the years, the most famous being the one by The Byrds, which topped The United States singles charts for three weeks.

Her take on the song was very much in the folk tradition. Her pure voice was always at home with this type of material. It may not have charted but remains one of the better covers of this classic folk song.
