Collins began a 35-year recording relationship with Elektra Records at age 22 with her debut album, A Maid of Constant Sorrow. She covered songs by Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell before they were recognized names. She charted her first Top 10 single with a cover of Mitchell's "Both Sides Now." She broadened her horizons and recorded her first Beatles song on 1966's trend-setting In My Life.

In her fourth Mountain Stage appearance, recorded in Boston in 2007, Collins performs two Lennon/McCartney compositions and Mitchell's "That Song About the Midway." She's accompanied by Russell Walden on piano and Larry Campbell on guitar.
