Early Lady Day: 1933-1937

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
The first four years of Billie Holiday's recording career saw her progress from mere studio vocalist possessing clear talent but rarely given the material or the space to show it on record to the leader of her own orchestra and, through her association with Teddy Wilson, owner of the best reputation in vocal jazz.

Slightly sunnier early in her career than she'd become by the end of the '30s, Holiday rhapsodizes over a trio of Fields/McHugh chestnuts: "A Fine Romance," "I Can't Give You Anything but Love," and "I Must Have That Man." The compilers, however, ensured plenty of time for the darker side of Holiday's performing persona, including "Billie's Blues" and "Mean to Me."
