Description

For these Decca sessions, Billie was accompanied by strings and large studio orchestras for the first time in her career. Her voice was at its strongest during the 1940s, and among the many high points here are her original versions of ‘Lover Man’ (Holiday’s biggest selling record), ‘Don’t Explain’, and ‘Good Morning Heartache’. Holiday’s work here is often melancholy and resigned in the extreme, with sterling treatments of forlorn songs, such as ‘You Better Go Now’, and ‘What Is This Thing Called Love?’.
