AllMusic Review by

Collecting a variety of Billie Holiday recordings done in a wide range of styles and moods, this entry-level best-of features 1940s tracks like the jaunty "Any Old Time" and "Swing Brother Swing" as well as later '50s cuts like "Don't Explain" and "My Man," the latter displaying all the heartbreaking melancholy that the singer was capable of conveying.
