Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit (2xLP)

$20.99
A great issue of some of Billie Holiday's classic sides for the Commodore label – a company she didn't work with often, but home to some of her best material of the early years! The tracks here were mostly recorded in 1944, but the set also features some early bits from 1939 as well – and backing on all numbers is by small combos, with players who include Eddie Heywood on piano, Frankie Newton or Doc Cheatham on trumpet, Tab Smith or Lem Davis on alto, Teddy Walters on guitar, and Kenneth Hollon on tenor sax. Titles include Holiday's seminal "Strange Fruit" – a track that's stunning both for its handling of racial subject matter, and for the fact that it's one of the few penned by Billie herself! Other titles include "Yesterdays", "I'll Get By", "I Cover The Waterfront", "Lover Come Back To Me", "I'm Yours", and "Embraceable You".

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our shipping and processing times have been extended. Please note, we are still shipping and attending to customer service inquiries as per usual. Delays in supply chain, shorter fulfillment schedules, as well as extended processing from USPS have forced these delays for the time being.

Pre-Orders

We try and offer as many upcoming projects available for pre-order when the releases have moved into production. However, due to the nature of manufacturing and production, pre-order dates may change. If your pre-ordered items are holding your package from arriving please email us with a request to ship the in-stock items and pre-orders when they become available. 

If your order contains pre-order items we will hold the package until all titles are available to ship.
