Billie Holiday
Billie Holiday shame she was dead too young, she was a product of swamp music, just fab! with her smoky voice.

Legendary singer, incredible voice.
Sad life too.

Beautiful voice. Gloomy Sunday is probably one of my favorite songs ever.

As the song goes "Only the good die young" by another Billy, Billy Joel also Iron Maiden.

billie holiday isn't another billy. her name is billie, not billy.

i like the line in 'a fine romance' that goes ''we should be like two hot tomatoes but you're as cold as yesterday's mash potatoes''

I just heard All of Me and her voice is incredible. What album should I get?

right-track 02-06-2008 10:58 AM

There's loads of compilation albums out there...take yer pick.

Edit: This one just about covers most things...
Lady Day: the Best of Billie Holiday.
the best of Billie Holiday is to be found in the 30s/40s on this double CD. Amazon
I think these are the Columbia recordings, which are supposed to be the best period.
