Clef Records. Sell This Version. Verve Records. Columbia , E. Records Limited. American Recording Society. Either you know who and what Ms.
Holiday is talking about or you don't. If you don't you'll have to go elsewhere for explanations. Her autobiography is not what I'd call well crafted, but it is still well told.
Through the rough edges of her prose Ms. Holiday reveals more of herself than would be found in any professionally written biography.
I'd recommend this book to anyone, but it would be particularly well received by those interested in Women's history or African American history.
It's also a must read for fans of jazz. Feb 22, Ulla rated it it was amazing Shelves: favourites. This real story had me totally fascinated all through.
So much so that I had to jump to AdLibris and buy my own copy!! Feb 13, Dorothea rated it liked it. It's very difficult to know what to say about this memoir, since it wasn't exactly written by Billie Holiday, but by her friend William Dufty, who based it on interviews and other conversations with her.
This review at the San Francisco Chronicle says that the book is full of "factual inaccuracies and exaggerations" but "captures [Holiday's] tart voice and unflinching eye," and that Dufty's "aim was to let Holiday tell her story her way.
I'd have to read a thorough biography of her to have a better idea, I suppose. The main opinion I hope wasn't really Holiday's is the narrator's attitude about lesbians.
I suppose on the plus side, nobody reading this book could deny that there were lesbians in the s through 50s, as well as male and female cross-dressers.
But the narrator seems very keen to dissociate herself from queerness. Apart from owning up to being friends with a male transvestite, the narrator I keep saying "narrator" instead of Holiday because I don't really know for sure!
It was really unpleasant to read, especially when I thought that "Miss Brown To You" was a sweet song about lesbians!
Lady Sings the Blues does not say anything about those lyrics. I really do like what the narrator has to say about trauma and stress.
A lot of very bad things definitely happened to Holiday, starting in her early childhood. Without having the psychological language people use today like PTSD and triggers , the narrator says very simply and convincingly that a person who's had terrible things happen to her doesn't just get over them completely.
They stay with her and can overwhelm her again if she's reminded of them. She says they informed her singing, especially particular songs which she has a very strong reaction to.
The narrator describes how she went on tour with a band whose musicians were all white men. All the "cats" as she calls them liked her and always wanted to insist on her being treated the same as they, but this meant a constant battle at segregated restaurants, hotels, and concert halls all over the country.
She loved them for standing up for her, but she says that sometimes she pleaded with them to just let her go in the back door so that she didn't have to go through the civil rights movement five times a day.
This was so stressful for her that she became physically ill. Another opinion I think is interesting is what she says about drugs, the law, and treatment.
Of course it's really hard to tell what her real opinion was about this subject, since Holiday was being monitored by the law and was still struggling with her addiction when this book came out.
But one thing she says is that when she was on tour in Europe, she was very impressed by the different legal attitude towards drugs there particularly in Great Britain.
She said that there, unlike in the United States, she could see a doctor openly about her addiction without fearing arrest, and so it would be so much easier to break the addiction without the stress and stigma of criminality.
I'll end with an anecdote that made me laugh. This is the narrator's I hope verbatim from Billie Holiday opinion of opinion of the luxury car bought by Artie Shaw, leader of a band she went on tour with: From then on Artie used to lead the caravan driving this big old Rolls.
And he always wanted me to ride up with him and Max and Tony and sometimes Benny, our road manager. I had mixed feelings about this. A Rolls is built for pleasure.
It's great to be able to call your chauffeur and say, "James, take me through Central Park and then back home. But it's nowhere for highballing a hundred and fifty miles to make a gig.
You take it up over thirty-five miles an hour and if you're in the back seat it's apt to turn you into a milkshake. You got to sit up straight in it like a queen cruising past her subjects.
It's no damn good for lovers either. You can't bend in it no kind of way. It's only good for one thing -- that's to be dicty. Shelves: biography.
She was an unusually interesting unique person. Too bad she fell down the drug addict hole, dying with heroin for her next shot strapped to her thigh.
I prefer her as a musician rather than as an author. This was a patchy book with missing pieces. I was aware that there was more than one author since the writing flow and style was often jerky.
Also, this book seemed to me to be a mix of authenticity and untruth. I say "untruth" because there were several incorrect assertions, for one example, wh She was an unusually interesting unique person.
I say "untruth" because there were several incorrect assertions, for one example, who wrote which songs.
And some things were exaggerated, some things were omitted and some things seemed hidden. I think, to capture her life, listen to her voice and read other facts and other biographies about her.
The movie did not add much for me, I did not care for it. Add all of that to this "memoir" and authenticity peeks through.
I can understand her the most by listening to her voice. I especially like the album "Lady in Satin" with Ray Ellis. I did like the book because one can feel that some of the passages are telling it like it was and shining a bit of light on who she truly was.
The best part about this book is the language in which it is written and the era it represents. Utilising a lot of street and jazz speak of the time as well as the casual references to jazz era giants makes for a unique insight.
Unfortunately the admission in the book's foreword that confirms that the validity of it's claims are rightly disputed.
This tends to tint the whole book a little as the reader is left to try and decide which parts are fiction and which aren't.
Still, even if some of the The best part about this book is the language in which it is written and the era it represents.
Still, even if some of the tales are a little tall, it is still an opportunity to hear from a unique performer in a unique style. I absolutely loved this book!
It felt like Billie was talking to me herself. Next to Ella she is my favourite Jazz singer. I knew almost nothing of Billie Holiday except for her amazing voice.
In fact, she comes off as a seriously flawed but ultimately human figure. She was rarely young and innocent, even in childhood. There are parts that feel lacking in clarity or in need of an editor, but this just adds to the overall charm.
It feels like we are sitting down across a smoky booth in a bar a fitting setting given her struggles, perhaps , while Billie is riding the wave of her memories and we are just her captive audience, ordering another round.

However, it was actually ghostwritten by William Dufty. Dufty's writing style is good enough to make the reader feel they are reading Lady Day telling us her story.
And that's a huge plus for the book. However, the book feels incomplete. Quite a few times, an anecdote or incident is related, but we never quite get the rest of it.
Or the incident is told in such broad strokes it's not quite clear what happened. For instance, when Peggy Lee presented Lady Day a song she had written for her, another party guest "made a nasty crack".
What was said was extremely vague. We know the guest said, "Well, goddammit, darlings, what's everybody so angry about?
I only told the truth. But what was said? Did he throw shade at the song or did he imply a relationship between Billie and Peggy?
The most frustrating thing about the book is its treatment of Holiday's heroin addiction. She claims Doubleday, the publisher, stated she was writing about her fight with dope.
She also States, "Dope never helped anybody sing better, or play music better, or do anything better. Trouble is, the book never really delves into Billie Holiday's drug addiction.
If the book is any indication, the worst that happened to her is that she was arrested, went to jail, was released and became a bigger success than ever before.
That doesn't sound like much of a deterrent. We're never told exactly when and how she started using heroin. We're never told if using the drugs affected her singing, her relationships.
Even though she'd undoubtedly been using for years, heroin and Lady Day's addiction are invisible throughout the narrative.
It's inconsequential in her day to day living. Until she got busted in Philadelphia. But surely, as an addict, it played a large role in her life?
Yet, in ignoring it so much, shoving her heroin abuse so far into the background it's non-existent until Lady Day gets arrested , the book cannot act the way the authors want to.
But it's a shallow outline. I think now I'm going to have find another book on Lady Day to learn more; to find out what was omitted from this book.
May 27, Marjori Pomarole rated it it was amazing. Short and sweet. But more like short and heartbreaking. Behind the powerful voice there was a story of violence, police abuse, racism and struggle through every step of her career.
What a strong person, many people would have crumbled at half the things she had to endure. Highly recommended this book. Wish it was 3x the size.
Sep 03, Elizabeth rated it liked it. Possibly it read a little like selected interview tapes, no tonal variety. Underplayed financial management, and probably the degree of drug taking.
But very good - because of its understatement - on racism and discrimination. A book detailing her addiction.
The early part of her life in particular left me feeling that I was fortunate to grow up in such a sheltered way.
But I also thought what a senseless, senseless waste. This was moving, kinda sad but ultimately beautiful in its own way.
Definitely glad I stumbled on this in a bookshop. Mar 02, Joan Baslow-Temple rated it liked it. Raw and heart wrenching. Nov 01, Christopher Jones rated it it was amazing.
Oct 08, Trista rated it it was amazing. What an amazing life. Starting with her mother's pregnancy with the singer at thirteen years old, Holiday paints her poverty ridden childhood with so much color and life it's hard to accept the heartbreaking reality of her being a prostitute and nearly raped at age ten for which she was thrown in prison and then a nunnery.
Between the struggle as a musician to keep food in her belly and the constant barrage of legal obstacles and imprisonments from racist white America, it's truly staggering w What an amazing life.
Between the struggle as a musician to keep food in her belly and the constant barrage of legal obstacles and imprisonments from racist white America, it's truly staggering what this great woman was able to accomplish.
The reader follows her through a visit to her unimaginable "childhood" to tours where she is ridden with bladder infections because she's not allowed to urinate where white people are, so it forces her to pee outside all year round, to her imprisonments for narcotics, brief work in film, her struggle with men and her love for and death of her mother.
What we get in such a short work, assisted by her ghost writer William Duffy and through stories of specific incidences and descriptions of friends and foes, is a detailed sense of her time on this planet and the people around her, her voice, and I would say, soul.
Saying more would give too much away that you'll definitely want her to tell you. A must read! Feb 19, Vanessa Caspersz added it.
I loved it - I feel like I have a deep connection with, and understanding of Billie Holiday - what an inspirational woman and musician.
Can never be another Lady Day!! Her style was entirely her own, distinctive, haunting Unimaginably smooth and unforgettable.
She sang straight from her heart. If you heard a song sung by her you never liked it sung by anyone else, she owned it.
She was sick, not a criminal. A good book about a great Lady. Jul 16, Paula Maguire rated it really liked it.
