A beautiful early 10" album by Billie Holiday – one that features a classic David Stone Martin cover, and a set of 8 tracks that capture the best of the Verve Holiday sound! Despite the title, the tunes are all studio recordings – done with small group players that include Joe Newman, Paul Quinichette
, Flip Phillips, and Charlie Shavers. Billie's fine and mellow, as always – and titles include "Tenderly", "Yesterdays", "Remember", "Can't Face The Music", and "Stormy Weather".
(Vinyl plays decently overall, but has some clicks and crackles. Cover has some light wear, and bits of yellowing tape on the seams.)
