The Music of Judy Garland 

&quot:I’ve always loved music and I’ve always had a passion for Judy Garland.&quot:

THOSE THINGS DROVE LAWRENCE SCHULMAN TO PRODUCE A TWO CD SET THAT IS BEING RELEASED THIS WEEK.HE SAYS THERE’S MUCH MORE TO GARLAND THAN HER FAMOUS ROLE IN THE WIZARD OF OZ.

&quot:My purpose was to surprise people and say wow maybe she’s not this image the diva, hollywood star which she was to most people.&quot:

&quot:She’s someone who contributed incredibly to American popular music and that angle, that’s my thing.&quot:

&quot:She made much of the music unique.&quot:

THE CD’S CONTAIN 40 TRACKS. 25 OF THEM HAVE NEVER BEEN RELEASED.

&quot:Two of those recordings, her first solo recordings from 1929 ten years before the Wizard of Oz are the first two songs on that opened the cd.&quot:

&quot:She was seven and a half. She sounds like a kid singing but it’s the first time these are released and they are historic recordings.&quot:

THE SECOND CD IS ALL RADIO TRACKS FROM THE 30’S, 40’S AND 50’S. SCHULMAN SAYS HE GATHERED RECORDINGS FROM COLLECTORS ALL OVER THE WORLD .

&quot:I think the role of a collector is to share because if my house burned down those recordings wouldn’t exist unless they had already been issued.&quot:

&quot:You really have to share these things for them to survive.&quot:

JUDY GARLAND: CLASSIC AND PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED RECORDINGS 1929 TO 1956 IS AVAILABLE ON LINE ON AMAZON.
