AllMusic Review by

Lady Day & Pres 1937-1941 is a double-disc, 36-track overview of the musical romance between the troubled vocalist and the soft-toned tenor saxophonist. Among the many highlights are "Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love)," "I Can't Get Started," "The Very Thought of You," and two different takes of "All of Me." This is an expanded edition of Fremeaux & Associes 18-track Billie Holiday/Lester Young set released in 1992 under the same title.
