The first popular jazz singer to move audiences with the intense, personal feeling of classic blues, Billie Holiday changed the art of American pop vocals forever. This picture disc features some of her best tracks like; “Lover Man,” “Don’t Explain,” and her own composition “God Bless the Child”. In her autobiography Lady Sings The Blues Holiday indicated an argument with her mother over money led to the song. She indicated that during the argument her mother said the line “God bless the child that’s got his own.” The anger over the incident led her to turn that line into a starting point for a song, Listen and enjoy these tracks as they remain among the most sensitive and accomplished vocal performances ever recorded.
