Thanks, Bill Paley *

Can you believe there was a time when performances and a group of artists like this were regularly on TV? (It looks like it was the early 1950s). Today, lucky us, we get Justin Timberlake and J-Lo.

What a sad, self-destructive life Billie Holiday had, but, damn, she was good. (And, not to brag, but I've been in that studio.)


* for CBS and Columbia Records

Her voice when she is speaking at the beginning just sounds so tired.
