Billie Holiday Analogue Productions 45rpm

Just noticed that there is a 45rpm Analogue Productions version of Billie Holiday's "Songs for Distingue Lovers" on its way at the end of January:

If this is anything like their 45rpm Nat King Cole releases then it's definitely going on the list! Early Christmas present to self perhaps

Is it already available in the US?

Yep. A friend already bought one via Amazon.com (i think) - he says it sounds magnificent. I am hoping they may have some at Bristol Show, so i can treat myself Smile

Just checked - he actually bought a couple of remasters from eBay USA. His summary? "I can almost guarantee you won't have heard her sounding this real."

There are several, but Love is The Thing is the standout album:

With a bit of luck they'll have some of those there as well.

They're not cheap, but they sound sublime - the cost per play will end up much cheaper than some lower-priced albums that get little play...

And here's the Billie Holiday line-up of 3 albums from Analogue Productions - already available in US.

RE: Billie Holiday Analogue Productions 45rpm

The Analogue Productions Nat King Cole records are frankly sublime.

I'm looking forward to the Tonbridge audiojumble in Kent on 12th February - Diverse Vinyl will be there again I believe.

(disclaimer: I do not hold shares in diverse vinyl - I think they hold shares in me by now).
