This maybe her debut but Holiday had some 20 or so years of recording behind her. This cd holds one of my favorite Billie Holiday songs, You Go To My Head. This is a rare find if your lucky enough to have found it please buy it. […]

This LP captures the first studio session for Billie Holiday in the 1950s. Supervised by Norman Granz, backing musicians are all famous JATP guys. Actually Lady Day herself once toured as a member of JATP in the 1940s. Anyway this album holds one of the best singing in her last decade. And of course, we must thank Mister David Stone Martin for this great drawing on the front sleeve! […]
