The Grammy-nominated Collins has recorded more than 40 albums and still is writing and performing today at age 71. At the height of her career, Collins knew nearly everyone associated with the folk scene, and her story is filled with just as many tales of famous acquaintances such as Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Janis Joplin, and Joni Mitchell as there are on the singing legend herself. Her own story, however, remains truly fascinating. She was a woman of her time, embracing the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll that went with the job, as well as the social activism that accompanied the era. Collins, who narrates in a dreamy voice, tells her story with honesty and doesn't gloss over the dark parts, including a failed marriage, an eating disorder, alcoholism, and a troubled son. The best parts, however, are the snippets of Collins singing throughout as well as the five bonus tracks at the audiobook's end. VERDICT As Richard Farina once said, "[I]f amethysts could sing.they would sound like Judy Collins."
