This is a listing of recordings in which Judy Collins has made a contribution and not merely included a copy of her library material. There are no catalog numbers here as material keeps appearing all the time.

Newport Folk Festival 1963 Evening Concerts II - 1963 - Vanguard 79149

I'm not sure if there is any unique material on this album any longer. It may have been re-released on the Live At Newport recordings.

Folksong ’65 Elektra 15th Anniversary Commemorative Album - 1965 - Elektra Records (# S-8)

A sampler of 12 cuts from such Elektra artists as Tom Rush, Tom Paxton and Phil Ochs. Contains only one cut by Judy, “So Early in the Spring.” The cover features 1.5 inch square photos of Judy, Tom Rush, Tom Paxton and others.

Save The Children: Songs From the Hearts of Women - 1967 - Women Strike for Peace Records W-001

Produced by Judy Collins and Ethel Raim Dunson, May 1967 for Women Strike For Peace - Cover illustration by Kaethe Kollwitz, Mother with Children, 1932

"This record was born out of a great frustration. What can we do as women to save the children, to stop the slaughter? We refuse to accept war with breakfast and atrocities with the evening meal. We ask with this record that you do all within your power to END ALL WARS." --- Judy Collins and Ethel Raim Dunson, May 1967

A Tribute to Woody Guthrie, Vol. 1 1968 Columbia KC-31171

A Tribute to Woody Guthrie, Vol. 2 1970 Warner Bros. BS-2586 26036-2 (1989) 26036-4 (1989)

Excerpts from the 1968 and 1970 memorial concerts held in New York and Los Angeles. Guthrie's songs performed by Judy Collins and others.

White Lightnin’ Fresh Air - Ray and Ramsey LP 1970 - (Polydor 24-4027) LP

Obray Ramsey and Byard Ray sing vocals and play fiddle and banjo, while Eric Andersen plays harmonica, and Judy sings harmony on this rare recording of Bob Dylan’s song:

The Bitter End Years - 1974 Roxbury Records (Thanks, Blair Leatherwood)

Bleecker and MacDougal – The Folk Scene of the 1960’s - 1984 Elektra Records (60381-1-V) Four record boxed set.

This boxed set contains songs by such Elektra artists as Dave Van Ronk, Josh White, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs, Tom Rush and Judy Collins. The boxed set comes with a beautifully written and designed 20 page booklet, detailing the history of the New York City folk scene and Elektra’s part in it. It includes a full page photo of Judy with guitar, circa 1966 , that Phil has never seen elsewhere. This is a collectors item and a historical account that is well worth looking for!

Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber - Performance - 1985 - Telstar Records (Star 2262) England LP

This album contains songs by Judy, Elaine Paige, David Essex and others. These songs were recorded with the Philharmonia Orchestra, during the same period that Judy was in London recording the Amazing Grace album, also for Telstar.

Rare, Live, and Classic Joan Baez - 1993 - Vanguard 1570 72527 2 (3CD)

From Save The Children, above. This is a good-quality stereo recording. I wish someone would re-release the entire Save The Children.

Happy Holidays, Vol. 28 - 1993 - RCA Special Products / BMG Direct Marketing DPC1-1107 (CD)

The copy I have has a True Value Hardware logo on the front and a Salvation Army shield with a note that says, "A portion of the proceeds will be contributed to the Salvation Army."

These probably will show up in many guises. These Christmas 'Special Projects' releases remind me of a CBS Special Projects Christmas LP from many years ago. It was issued both as "Christmas in New York" and "Christmas in California." I picked up the latter a few years ago at a garage sale and I thought I had something new. I was surprised when the cuts were identical to the New York one my folks had bought in probably the early to mid '60's. The covers were totally different! The Ansel Adams photo of Yosemite in the snow was worth the garage-sale price!
