Judy Garland casually picks up and owns a standard that Barbra Streisand had recently laid claim to.

JUDY GARLAND AND FRIENDS
An All Star Salute To Barbra Streisand. With more stars than there are in the heavens....
JUDY GARLAND IN CONCERT
Debut posting of Judy's June 18, 1967 performance at Westbury Music Fair.
JUDY IN SEATTLE 1955
Radio broadcast where Judy plugs her upcoming shows in British Columbia. She gives the interviewer the brush off with a phony story only to get totally called out on her fib. Fun fluff from people who are in good spirits.
SUNDAY MORNING SPECIAL
Barbra Streisand. Oh so early, oh so rare.
THE GLUM GUMM PT 1.
Ultra rare 1956 demo recording of Virginia Thompson, formerly Jimmie of The Gumm Sisters. This original, penned by Mrs. Thompson, evokes dusty and depressing images of torn taffeta and wringing hands. More next week! The song is also available on our blog in a listen only format. http://thejudygarlandexperience.blogspot.com/2012/10/a-gumm-sister-crying-in-night.html
WHERE JUDY PLAYED
Barbra Streisand taking requests during a 1973 performance at the Jennings Lang estate (to raise money for the Elsberg fund). Maybe Judy didn't exactly perform at Jennings Lang's home (I checked with his widow yesterday just to make sure), but when it came to singing at Hollywood parties and in producers homes, Judy had been there and done that and had the tee shirt in six sizes. Also heard on this recording are Marvin Hamlisch and Joni Mitchell.
