This wonderful album from 1977 features a little bit of everything
from Garland's career, from 1936 to 1967 including clips
from three of her hilarious television interviews.
"The Wonder" of the title is Judy's singing as represented
on Side 1 of the record. "The Wit" is Judy's one-of-a-kind
way with telling stories, as evidenced in the television
interviews presented on Side 1.
In spite of the fact that
"Dardenella" is mistakenly dated 1968
1938, the album is well
put together and the sound quality is great. It would be
nice to have this record on CD. "Americana" is listed as
an "unused rehearsal recording" but is actually an MGM
pre-recording alternate take.
Altogether an very very well done and thoroughly enjoyable
Note: In the track listing below, we have corrected and added
more detailed information that what is originally listed
on the back of the album (see at right).
