After scoring an unexpected chart hit with her rendition of Stephen Sondheim 's "Send in the Clowns" and the accompanying Judith album in , Judy Collins seemed to lose career and musical momentum on her follow-up, Bread and Roses. Hard Times for Lovers was an attempt to recapture the momentum of the Judith album and also to update her image. The latter mostly took the form of a striking front-and-back nude photo of Collins discreetly cropped and framed on the album's cover; the design boosted her already high stock among adherents of the woman's movement, but engendered some controversy in more politically conservative circles. The musical content, however, was about half of what it should have been -- the title track authored by Hugh Prestwood was moderately catchy and memorable, and Collins also covered material by Randy Newman , Carole Bayer Sager , the Eagles , and Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart , but there was little excitement or tension to any of the material here, and her voice sounded thin and strained at times. The track that should have elicited the greatest interest, Stephen Sondheim 's "I Remember Sky" -- from a lost ABC television-spawned musical called Evening Primrose -- was strangely under-recorded which, coupled with a lack of richness in Collins ' singing, left it intrinsically haunting a fundamental attribute of the composition itself but pale and inaccessible. Frank Baum's books and the MGM movie, with a gorgeous chorus, and is arguably -- along with the title cut -- the most successful song on the album.
