The Complete Decca Recordings. Billie Holiday is heard at her absolute best on this attractive two-CD set. During her period on Decca, Lady Day was accompanied by strings (for the first time), large studio orchestras, and even background vocalists, so jazz solos from her sidemen are few. But her voice was at its strongest during the 1940s (even with her personal problems) and to hear all 50 of her Decca performances (including alternate takes and even some studio chatter) is a real joy.

As for comparing it with earlier Teddy Wilson-Billie sessions, what’s the point? Count your blessings in having both. Two recordings, What a Little Moonlight Can Do and I Cried for You were also recorded by Holiday in the 1930s with Teddy Wilson’s band, at the beginning of her career.

Back when Billie Holiday was first accorded the accolade it really meant something. So we’re attempting the impossible, to come up with 20 tracks that tell the story of her career in just 20 Billie Holiday songs. As usual we’ll start at the very beginning – well almost. Billie’s first visit to a recording studio was on 18 October 1933 with clarinettist, Benny Goodman and his Orchestra that included Gene Krupa on drums. Several Clef albums followed and by 1956 when Granz had formed Verve Records Billie was switched to that label to record the album that accompanied her autobiography, ‘Lady Sings The Blues. There are some that say that by this point Billie had lost it, and there is no question that the ravages of her addictions had done irreparable damage.
