Control Booth Vol 2 1941-42




Vintage Jazz

Billie Holiday s reputation would seem secure. It hardly mattered whether she sang good songs or trivial ones, although good was better and both are here. What matters is that she didn't court the popular vote by fashioning her songs to the modes ot the moment. Instead, she interpreted them, amended them, and tied them in bows full of unexpected hues according to her own muse. Today they are startlingly undated and persistently relevant, both as documents of the past and influences on the future. This second collection contains many previously unissued outtakes and serves to remind us of the genius that was Billie Holiday. CONTAINS MANY PREVIOUSLY UNISSUED TAKES*
