Billie Holiday - Music For Torching (1955)

"Music For Torching" is a studio album by jazz singer Billie Holiday, released in 1955 by Clef Records. It is her first 12 inch LP of original material, after four 10 inch LPs for the same label.
The music was recorded over the course of two sessions in Los Angeles, two days apart, which also resulted in all the material for her followup album Velvet Mood
The overall feeling on this 1955 recording is strictly after-hours: the party is long over but a few close friends remain for nightcaps and, is that the sun peeking through the window? Lady Day's renderings  of "It Had to Be You" and "Isn't This a Lovely Day?" are timeless gems.

It Had To Be You4:03
Come Rain Or Come Shine4:25
I Don't Want To Cry Anymore3:56
I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance With You4:29
A Fine Romance3:34
Gone With The Wind3:25
I Get A Kick Out Of You5:42
Isn't This A Lovely Day?4:17

For some reason I can't get the new link to load. I've tried using different browsers. The rest of the links work fine. I'll try again tomorrow, but in the meantime, can you take a look and let me know if it works for you? Thank you for all the wonderful music shared here.
