Billie Holiday - Songs For Distingué Lovers (Verve Acoustic Vinyl)It is undeniable that Billie Holiday's singing changed in her later years. Her voice darkened and shifted to a lower range. Her economy of expression distilled her sound to its essence - a kind of heightened speech. The classic LP Songs For Distingué Lovers - her best work of the 1950’s - has also deepened and become burnished with time.
Verve’s Acoustic Sounds Series features transfers from analog tapes and remastered 180-gram vinyl in deluxe gatefold packaging.
