With such a lengthy and deep repertoire, it's difficult to compile a great representative selection of tracks for someone like Billie Holiday, but this particular album does a pretty decent job. Famous songs like "Strange Fruit," "Billie's Blues," and "Night and Day" aren't included here, but "God Bless the Child," "I Cover the Waterfront," and "My Man" are. The sound quality is good too, something that's not always a given with compilations, and there are some other great examples of Lady Day and her voice here, like "Love Me or Leave Me" and "One for My Baby."
