Billie Holiday: Blue Billie

Columbia’s Legacy label breaks up the recent all-encompassing Billie Holiday box set into three different themed collections.

The Legacy label takes a look at Billie’s work in the blues idiom on “Blue Billie.” Many of these recordings are quite familiar to many Billie fans, such as “God Bless the Child: and “Night and Day.” But this collection has a nice flow to it that makes an otherwise unexciting collection into a nice compilation that plays well from beginning to end.

A thoughtful approach and reorganization of an already stellar body of work.

Track Listing: 1. Gloomy Sunday

Personnel: 2. Trav'lin All Alone 3. Body and Soul 4. Where Is The Sun 5. You Let Me Down 6. God Bless The Child 7. Billie's Blues 8. I Cover The Waterfront 9. Moanin' Low 10. Am I Blue 11. Loveless Love 12. Night and Day 13. St. Louis Blues 14. Why Was I Born? 15. Ghost of Yesterday 16. Long Gone Blues
