ē Billie Holiday is heard at her absolute best on this set, which comprises her complete Decca recordings, made at her musical zenith between 1944 and 1950. During her time with the label, Lady Day was accompanied by strings and studio orchestras for the first time in her career.

ē Her voice was at its strongest in those years, and among the high points here are her original versions of songs which Billie would keep in her repertoire, such as “Lover Man” (Holidayís biggest selling record), “Donít Explain,” and “Good Morning Heartache”. This collection also contains two studio duets with Louis Armstrong. Three previously unissued alternate takes are presented here for the first time ever.
