Product Description:

Fans of Billie Holiday will be delighted to find some rare material on THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION, with rarely seen interviews, TV appearances, and live performances unearthed from the vaults. The treasure trove of delights that awaits eager viewers also includes a chance to read some letters Holiday wrote, and a timeline that charts all her amazing achievements. But it's during the live footage that Holiday really soars, with the late jazz singer working wonders on songs such as "The Blues Are Brewin'" and "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone." A carefully curated package aimed at Holiday's loyal fan base, this is a great opportunity to witness her incredible voice, and discover some interesting facts about her life away from the spotlight.
