In My Life-Judy Collins and Friends
Here we have a very early appearance from folk singer Judy Collins, later the inspiration for Stephen Stills' SUITE: Judy Blue Eyes. Doing aversion of one of John Lennon's prettiest and most wistful songs here, she introduces her back-up musicians. Chuck Israels is a Jazz arranger, composer and bassist best known for his work with the Bill Evans Trio. He later became a Jazz teacher.Eric Weissberg went on to some fame as the banjoist on classic theme from DELIVERANCE, DUELING BANJOS. Nearly 4 decades later, my wife would actually meet Judy Collins unexpectedly...at the United Nations.
