Billie's Twilight Performance
bobida | N.J. | 04/26/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"After only 1 or 2 songs on this CD, images of Billie in a smoke-filled dark room, singing her broken heart out in a ravaged voice to a roomful of strangers come to mind. The recording quality is not the greatest (somewhat muffed); the sound engineers did a credible job making this CD quite listenable. The ravaged state of Billie's voice suggests this was probably recorded during one of her club dates in the mid-to-late '50s. But, as always, Billie triumphs. She takes these 14 songs that are closely attached to her and turns them inside out. You can feel the pain and ache in her heart as she churns out each song in that ravaged, bluesy voice. Again, listener suspends all judgement of her technical shortcomings and succumbs to the emotional delivery of each performance as only Billie can. A devastating CD."
