Akiko's Holiday

CD (Item 985041) Verve (Japan), 2003 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

The Holiday in the title is Billie Holiday – as Japanese singer Akiko pays tribute to Lady Day in this really sweet set of tracks! The range of styles is what really makes the record work – as some tunes are done in the spare traditional style of Billie's original recordings, while others are done in a more expansive modern and jazzy style – including a few tracks that come off with a very nice groove to them! Titles include "Easy Living", "My Man", "What A Little Moonlight Can Do", "You've Changed", "God Bless The Child", and "Love For Sale".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print, first pressing from 2003 – includes obi.)

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
