A LIFE

Piano Roll, “When My Sugar Walks Down the Street” The file was made from the original QRS piano roll by Terry Smythe  in MIDI format.   His website address follows: http://members.shaw.ca/smythe/archive.htm The QRS rolls played all notes at a uniform dynamic.   To give a more "live" feeling to the sound I edited the MIDI file (with Terry’s permission) using Music Software.   I then recorded the end result using my Yamaha digital piano to obtain this mp3 file (Eric Hastead). More such music is available at: www.musicforpianos.com

ON-STAGE–!

A detailed listing about Judy Garland’s movies, radio and television performances, biographies and other memorabilia can be found on The Judy Garland Database. We thought this research was so good that we would simply send our visitors to the site, rather than repeating the author’s assiduous compilation. His name? Jim Johnson. When you are there, write him a note thanking him for his hard work (He does it as a “labor of love.”).
