O’s Notes: This is a fine collection of Billie’s best recordings on Commodore, Decca and Verve. The accompanying liner notes along with the music chronicle her career, her life and the tragic substance abuse that was too common among many musicians of the time. “Lover Man”, “Don’t Explain”, and “My Man” are among the dozen songs included. You’ll appreciate the beauty of a legend.
