    Wizard of Oz Judy Garland "Over the Rainbow" Acetate. This fantastic acetate recording features one partial and two full takes of Judy Garland singing her signature song from The Wizard of Oz on the MGM soundstage. Side One begins with some studio noise, the proceeds to a full take of the song with some studio chatter at the end. Side Two features a partial take as Garland sings a few lines and is then interrupted by a cough before proceeding into a second full take with some outstanding vocals. The recording is in overall Fine to Very Fine condition with some surface throughout, but also some very clear vocals. "Over the Rainbow" won the Oscar for Best Song of the Year, and also tops the RIAA's Songs of the Century list, making this one-of-a-kind item very desirable.
