Billie Holiday ‎– Solitude, 1956 LP mono rip


The album is a prime example of Clef's recordings in the mid-1950s. The wholeness of the sound is somewhat lacking, but on successful tracks the vocals are still clear and tremulous – "You Turned The Tables On Me" and "You Go To My Head" are recorded cleanly and sound comfortable, in the second case only the piano failed.

"Blue Moon" has a well-recorded voice and grand piano, and the solo winds are unpleasantly cutting. Unfortunately, as in other recording studios, Clef from session to session it was better to get one instrument, then another, but only occasionally all the instruments together.
