Billie

billie

Eleanora Fagan — April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959.

The performance below was recorded live in Los Angeles. Back in the years before Youtube, it took me years to find this Billie Holiday version on an LP which announced on its cover “Live at the Shrine Auditorium ” — which Angelenos know is hardly Hollywood. I don’t remember much more from the record, but I wore this cut out.

Spin it.
