    Before Heroin

    I think her earlier days was her best music.  After her herion addiction I found her music more depressing.

    Lovely and Intense

    She knew how to make the most of a song. No one will ever be able to sing Strange Fruit,Lover Man,Good Morning Heartache,Don't Explain,God Bless The Child,Taint' Nobody's Business...any of her songs like she did.

    It Has To Be Lady Day & Pres For Me

    I think Billie Holiday's later recording, when her voice was like gravel, are really sad. But her recordings with Lester Young in the 1930's are purrrrrfection.

    I Love Billie Holiday.

    Im surprised i havent joined this group earlier. Billie Holiday is one my absolute favorite female singers of all time. I just feel the soul in her voice and if i lay down with my eyes closed.... il end up crying of how beautiful she sounds.

    The Old Days

    I love Billie Holiday and all music from her time. When I listen to it I imagine I'm on a porch, it's an early  summers night, listening to the radio and they announce "here is an all new tune from the lovely Billie Holiday, enjoy folks!". I wish

    Tears to My Eyes

    Every time I listen to her, I get that lump in my throat and my eyes tear up because the pain and emotion in her voice, it makes you feel it. Especially STRANGE FRUIT, you felt like you were there seeing this "Strange Fruit" and it gives you an eerie, sad feeling. She...

    Billie's Blues ~

    She had the face of an angel and the voice of a strong, independant woman who had known more than her share of heartache. I often close my eyes while listening to her raspy, weathered voice belt out a song that takes me back to a time before I was even born. She calls to me...

    I don't know a voice that gives me a thrill like Billie's. Smokey, tormented and feminine. I heard the first song, more than 30 years ago.  I wanted to hear them all. I got three double LP's and for a long time it was my most treasured musical possession. I never...
