This edition of 'Strange Fruit' by Billie Holiday is taken from The Ultimate Collection (Amazon Edition) originally released by 'Not Now Music' in 2009 . The track runs to slightly longer than 3 minutes.

Billie Holiday first recorded the song in 1939. The lyrics were originally written as a poem, Abel Meeropol, as a protest against lynching after his horror at seeing photographs of one such event. Strong stuff indeed and the perfect vehicle for Billie Holiday's smoky, raw performance. It's haunting. The song opens with a piano introduction originally added to lengthen the song for recording purposes.

I don't think you can listen to 'Strange Fruit' and not be moved.

Sound quality is good and the track plays well on tablet and laptop. This version of the track (MP3) was hassle free to download directly from the Amazon site.
