Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide with her unique blend of interpretative folksongs and contemporary themes in an impressive career spanning more than 50 years. She released her first album, A Maid of Constant Sorrow, at the age of 22 and began a thirty-five year association with Jac Holzman and Elektra Records. She interpreted the songs of fellow artists, particularly the social poets of the time such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs and Tom Paxton. Collins was instrumental in bringing other singer-songwriters to a wider audience including poet/musician Leonard Cohen and musicians Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman.
She is also noted for her rendition of Joni Mitchell's “Both Sides Now” on her 1967 album, Wildflowers which has since been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Winning "Song of the Year” at the 1975 Grammy Awards was Judy's version of “Send in the Clowns,” a ballad written by Stephen Sondheim for the Broadway musical A Little Night Music. Judy has continued an impressive musical career with an extensive catalog from every decade throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and up to the present.
Judy has authored several books, including the inspirational memoir Sanity and Grace, focusing on the death of her only son, Sweet Judy Blue Eyes devoted to her life in music. In 1999, Judy founded her own record label, Wildflower Records - a grass roots artist driven label committed to nurturing fresh talent. (strongstuff)… (mer)
Grammy award winner, whose voice has been admired for many years, shares her version of the classic song Over the Rainbow in this beautiful picture book and CD set. Take a magical journey over the rainbow, when all the world is a hopeless jumble and the raindrops tumble all around, heaven opens a magic lane. When all the clouds darken up the skyway, there's a rainbow highway to be found, leading from your window pane to a place behind the sun, just a step beyond the rain. Sung by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz, these opening lyrics were recorded but never used in the film. Judy Collins, who version is timeless and classic, performs the extraordinary soundtrack for this book. The illustrations and song will delight and touch the heart of every parent and child who listens. There are also two additional songs White Choral Bells and I See the Moon included on the CD.
