Strange fruit by Billie Holiday is an eerie, sepulchral, requiem like protest about victims of lynching in the USA. My original copy suffers from terrible reproduction so I thought I might buy a better copy from amazon. Two versions in the MP3 list were unavailable until July 22nd or after, so I looked at the remastered version. The short sample offered was ( unusually) from the second half of the track, primarily the vocal, but the quality seemed OK. The full version I downloaded started with a flourish of trumpets, like bullfighting music, then straight into the vocal - omitting 70 seconds of piano solo which in the original establishes the atmosphere, sets the scene. I did not listen to more than 20 seconds worth and will probably never listen to it again - let it circle the earth in the amazon cloud for eternity,like a lost soul.

Great slice of pure Blues infused Jazz from Ms Billie Holiday.One of those tunes that DJs can spin early doors. Brilliant
