    Sweet Judy Blue Eyes is the deeply personal, honest, and revealing memoir of folk legend and relentlessly creative spirit Judy Collins. In it, she talks about her alcoholism, her lasting love affair with Stephen Stills, her friendships with Joan Baez, Richard and Mimi Fariña, David Crosby, and Leonard Cohen and, above all, the music that helped define a decade and a generation’s sound track.

    I was extremely disappointed in the sound quality of audibles rendition thay I am now buying the CD version instead. For only three dollars more I can have the entire frequency range and clarity that is missing form all audible products.It is so sad that audible has such a lock on the industry, as their sound quality is so much less than optimum - in a word, lousy!. Buy the CD version for a geniune experience of her beautiful voice!

    I was the original recording engineer on this, and though I have the original cassette release I wanted to hear it again. I was so terribly disappointed at the really inferior sound quality of audible that I may never buy from them again. For a few dollars more I cna get a CD with full frequency response and none of the awful smeary sound that they put in their proprietary audio format. I was disappointed at the first audble product I heard, and let my membership lapse for five years. Recently I revived it, only to find that they sound even worse now compared to CD audiobook and other sellers. It is really too bad audible has such a lock on MP3 releases as rthey do a really bad job of transferring good audio to their lousy format.
