First Boy I Loved
This just might be Collins finest moment as a recording artist. Stepping back from the theatre music and art song experimentation of In My Life and Wildflowers, Judy goes for more of a California country-rock sound. She has excellent taste in both songwriters (Ian Tyson, Sandy Denny) and backing musicians (guitarist and boyfriend Stephen Stills, drummer Jim Gordon). As always, however, the star of the show is Collins' flawless voice; simply listen to her version of the title song.
