1979 Judy Collins – Hard Time For Lovers

Collins, Judy 1979Hard Times For Lovers is an album by Judy Collins, released on Elektra Records in 1979.

Collins’ first album of new material since Bread and Roses in 1976, some extra publicity was earned as a result of the back cover of the Francesco Scavullo-photographed sleeve art, depicting most of a nude Collins as seen from the back. The album was still something of a commercial disappointment, however, peaking at #54 on the Billboard Pop Albums charts.
