A remarkable set
on 6 July 2009
The albums presented here are all from the Verve label and are shown with the dates 1953 to 1957. The Verve recordings account for about a third of Billie Holiday's studio output and include many of her own favourite recordings.
This is a remarkable set capturing the formative and middle years of her Verve output and with a consistent group of musicians. The sound quality is very good throughout and this compilation allows you to have 61 songs that do make this an ultimate collection. The performances are top notch and if you are a Billie Holiday fan looking to have CD copies of your well treasured LPs then this is the package for you. The presentation is excellent and the slim line packaging adds to the convenience too.
