The Essential Collection


In my opinion, these are some of the best Judy Garland CDs. They have good sound quality, and are a representative selection of Judy's work in all media - film, stage, recording studio, radio and television.

Judy in Hollywood

Judy recorded scores of songs (pun intended) during her tenure at MGM (1935-1950). Of course, most of these were used in the films she was in, but there were also many unused recordings and alternate takes. She also recorded songs for Warner Bros., 20th Century-Fox and United Artists. For soundtracks, see the Judy Garland Films pages. Some of the better compilation CDs are listed below.

Judy on Television

Judy first appeared on television with a Judy Garland special that was the premiere episode of Ford Motor Company's "Ford Star Jubilee" TV series in 1955. She appeared in a number of other Judy Garland specials from that time until 1963 when she had her own series The Judy Garland Show (1963/64 season). After 1964, she appeared as a guest star on many other shows. Some of the best television compilations include those below.
