5.0 out of 5 stars Historic jazz vocals..., 22 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Essential Brunswick Recordings 1935-1939 (Audio CD)
Billie Holiday, The Essential Brunswick Recordings, NOT3CD141

This new 3CD and 66 track compilation of recordings released by the Brunswick label in America is a welcome addition to the jazz/vocalist albums already released by Not Now Music in recent times.

CD1 covers 1935-1938 and has 11 songs from 1935; 9 from 1936 & and one each from 1937 & 1938.
CD2 covers 1935-1937 and has 1 song from 1935; 5 from 1936 and a mighty 16 from 1937.
CD3 covers 1935-1939 and has 1 song from 1935; 4 from 1937; a mighty 13 from 1938 & 4 from 1939.

The listings provide original Brunswick record numbers that can be easily cross checked with her Brunswick discography. Lady Day: The Complete Billie Holiday on Columbia 1933–1944. Original recording sessions took place at the following locations in New York City: at the 55 Fifth Avenue Studio on November 27, 1933; at the 1776 Broadway Studio from 1935 through January 1939; at the 711 Fifth Avenue Studio from March 1939 through June 1940.

The liner notes are by label regular Michael Heatley. Attractive packaging and images included. Yet again, Not Now Music are providing a musical journey through the career of a celebrated and legendary jazz performer. The sound transfers are excellent and the asking price a snip. The running times for the set are CD1 67.42; CD2 67.25 & CD3 65.55.
