One of my personal favorite pieces in my collection, I'm a huge Billie Holiday fan and this is probably the rarest release of her's I own (on vinyl at least, I do have a couple 78rpm Shellac records of hers that might be a bit more scarce).
Supervised by the famous Norman Granz this is an absolutely amazing album all around, every track is absolutely superb; my favorites being Moon Glow and How Deep Is The Ocean (written by Irving Berlin).
Another factor that makes this release extremely desirable to collectors is the classic David Stone Martin designed cover art. Sadly the sleeve on my copy is in fairly rough shape (probably a large part of why I manage to aquire it for the price I paid) but in my opinion still displays quite well all things considered.
