Billie Holiday: Songs For Distingué Lovers (Acoustic Sounds Series) LP

Billie Holiday

Verve, 1958

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 expression distilled her sound to its essence — a kind of heightened speech. The classic LP Songs For Distingué Lovers – her best work of the 1950s - has also deepened and become burnished with time.


Side A

1. Day In, Day Out
2. A Foggy Day
3. Stars Fell On Alabama


Side B

1. One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)
2. Just One Of Those Things
3. I Didn't Know What Time It Was

Verve’s Acoustic Sounds Series features transfers from analog tapes and remastered 180-gram vinyl in deluxe gatefold packaging.
