Lady Sings The Blues

I acquired Lady Sings The Blues the most recent record from former X Factor contestant Rebecca Ferguson in a charity shop the other day. As the title suggests it is a tribute to the great Billie Holiday. It is actually pretty good and no doubt will feature in due course.
It did however have me reaching for  Lady Day  herself on the basis that you can't improve upon perfection.
Sublime and a reminder that I  really need to get round to featuring the rest of The Blues Collection.

Billie Holiday - Lover Man (Where Can You Be?)

Billie Holiday - That Ole Devil Called Love


  1. Thanks for featuring Billie Holiday, CC, rather than the wannabe. You're absolutely right - sublime!

  2. Sublime indeed. Often imitated, never even close to being matched.

  3. Probably not do my street cred any good but I do think Rebecca Ferguson is by far and away the best singer ever to appear on the X Factor. Obviously she is no Billie Holiday but her interpretations are pretty decent...
