LP - Limited Edition 180g Virgin Vinyl featuring the complete album + 5 bonus tracks. Only 1,000 copies pressed in this edition .
The first popular jazz singer to move audiences with the intense, personal feeling of classic blues, Billie Holiday (1915-1959) changed the art of American pop vocals forever. Songs for Distingue Lovers is one of the best albums from her late period and finds her surrounded by important instrumentalists, such as Ben Webster and Harry "Sweets" Edison.
The album received a four-star rating in Down Beat upon its release: "This is one of those loose, utterly relaxed sessions where the rhythm section is settled in a happy groove behind the singer and the horn players are left free to say their piece without the restriction of short takes. Miss Holiday remainsthe unique stylist, still incomparable."
