Liner Note Author: Gary Bell.
Vee Jay originally released Love You Madly, a collection of then-previously unissued Duke Ellington performances, back in 1974. Collectables' 2002 reissue doesn't add anything new to the album, but it is nice to have it back in print again, especially for the performance of "Lover Come Back to Me," which features Billie Holiday. Other highlights include the medley of "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," "In a Sentimental Mood," "Mood Indigo," "I'm Beginning to See the Light," "Sophisticated Lady," "Caravan," "It Don't Mean a Thing," "Solitude," and "I Let a Song Go out of My Heart" and "The Mooche." ~ Heather Phares
