3 Billion Millionaires
ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

In the words of Curtis Roosevelt's liner notes, this album "is a brand-new kind of album. It is not a collection of unconnected songs, or a string of soaring testimonials. Instead, it is a complete, original musical comedy, with every role played by a star. Moreover, it is the first musical comedy ever created expressly for the record medium. It is pure entertainment - in three dimensions: One for song, one for laughter, and one for thinking. And it sings and laughs and thinks its way straight to the very heart of the United Nations."

This gatefold album brings together performances of the biggest stars of the day who donated their time and resources. Proceeds from the album benefitted UNICEF and The United States Committee for The United Nations.

Judy's contribution is the original song "One More Lamb", recorded in October of 1962 backstage at the Sahara in Las Vegas, Nevada. The orchestra and children's chorus were added later. This song is available on the out-of-print CD "The Definitive Garland" released in 1990.
