Billie Holiday Songs For Distingue Lovers on Numbered Limited Edition 200g 45RPM 2LP

Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound from the Original Analog Master Tapes!

Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!

It is undeniable that Billie Holiday's singing changed in her later years. Her voice darkened and shifted to a lower range. Her economy of means distilled her sound to its expressive essence, a kind of heightened speech. The classic 1957 Verve release Songs For Distingue Lovers, has also deepened and become burnished with time.

Maybe it's that still-arresting word distingué; maybe it's that iconic, tinted image of Lady Day on the cover. For that matter, iconic accompaniment from the likes of Harry Edison (trumpet), Ben Webster (tenor sax), Jimmy Rowles (piano), Barney Kessel (guitar), Red Mitchell (bass) and Alvin Stoller (drums) never hurts either. All in all, the legendary Norman Granz produced set features what is arguably the singer's best studio work of the '50s!

"These are all truly classic Verve titles that you simply don't want to miss, most importantly, the sound of these reissues is nothing short of astounding! - Danny Kaey/Positive Feedback Online
