Billie Holiday - All Or Nothing At All

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: holidallor_2018) 

A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

A KILLER sounding copy with Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it from start to finish, on quiet vinyl to boot. This is one of the best sounding Billie Holiday records we have ever heard - it's even a clear step up from the originals we had on hand. This 2 LP set features most of the tracks from the original release plus another handful of recordings from the same period (1955-1956)

Billie Holiday - Lady In Satin

Balancing the Vocal, Strings and Rhythm

  (Item #: holidladyi_2016) 

Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on what you should be listening for when critically evaluating your copy (or ours) of the album.

The better copies reproduce clearly what to our minds are the three most important elements in the recording -- strings, rhythm, and vocal -- and, more importantly, the are reproduced properly balanced with one another.

The monos, as you might expect, balance the three elements well enough, but the problem with mono is that the vocals and instruments are jammed together in the center of the soundfield, layered atop one another.

Billie Holiday - Music For Torching

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: holidmusic_2015) 

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

You'd be hard pressed to find a female vocal album from the 1950s with sound comparable to this one. We just finished up a big shootout for the sublimely titled Music For Torching, and this was clearly one of the better pressings we played. If you love smoky jazz vocals the way only Lady Day can sing them, we think you'll be absolutely blown away to hear her sound this warm, rich and present.

Billie Holiday - Songs for Distingue Lovers

Classic Records Reviewed

  (Item #: holidsongs_classic_records) 

Sonic Grade: B?

Probably a fairly good Classic Records jazz album.

Back in the day we noted that: "This is one of the best Billie Holiday records around" and we stand by that statement.

By the way, we have never had a Hot Stamper pressing of the album on the site because we simply cannot find enough clean copies with which to do a shootout!

For thirty bucks the price of this Heavy Vinyl pressing has to be seen as a bargain.
