Billie Holiday ‘At Storeyville’ out today on black vinyl

Our Billie Holiday At Storyville reissue was first released as a limited edition white color vinyl, exclusively for Black Friday 2014. As of today, it’s now widely available on black vinyl. Pick up your copy at a local independent record store, or grab a copy from our online store.

Billie Holiday is captured live at Storyville in Boston in 1951 and 1953. The discreet recordings capture Lady Day in prime emotive voice. On most selections she is accompanied by the Carl Drinkard Trio, but six others find her joined by Buster Harding’s Trio; the great tenor Stan Getz sits in on three of these numbers. Previously out of press for over 25 years, this historic recording was remastered and pressed on virgin vinyl at Pallas Group in Germany.

Note: For those who subscribed to our Black Lion Jazz Reissue series, it’s worth mentioning that this release will not be available in the 180gram LP or 2LP 45RPM formats. The recording quality, specifically on side two, is not consistent with the audiophile-grade standard of the series. Nevertheless, it’s an historic recording that is undeniably worthy of a vinyl reissue, and we’re thrilled that it’s finally seeing the light of day.
