Singing Lessons
Singing Lessons is Judy Collins's life statement, complete with stories of her childhood, the music industry, her marriage to a man she had been living with for 17 years, her trips to Vietnam and Bosnia, and her night in the Lincoln bedroom. With rare candor and the insight her fans have always glimpsed in her lyrics, she looks back on a rich and extraordinary life full of both successes and failures with sorrow, joy, and wisdom. Chapters are separated by mediations on death and rebirth she wrote in the period after her son's suicide.

Over The Rainbow
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.
You may not immediately recognize these words...but you definitely know and love the song to which they belong. This is the introductory verse to "Over the Rainbow," sung with such memorable poignancy by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz. Although she actually recorded these opening lyrics, they were never used in the film. The extraordinary soundtrack for this book is performed by Judy Collins, who has recorded what might be the very best version of "Over the Rainbow" ever sung. The winner of a Grammy Award, Collins's glorious voice is one of the most admired of the 20th and 21st centuries.
