Solitude runs as the common theme throughout these 16 tracks; the idle breathiness of "These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)" finds the vocalist casually reminiscing, and Barney Kessel's warm guitar lines frame the title track beautifully. Several of Holiday's best-known recordings came from this session, including outstanding versions of "I Only Have Eyes for You" and a darkly emotional "Love for Sale," making this album far and away the best work of her later years, and certainly a noteworthy moment of her entire career.

Solitude (оригинал Billie Holiday). Одиночество (перевод Алекс). You haunt me. Ты преследуешь меня. С невероятной легкостью. Of days gone by. Прошедших дней. You taunt me. Ты смеешься надо мной. С помощью воспоминаний, That never die.

In 1956, Billie Holiday released two albums, Velvet Mood and Solitude to coincide with her autobiography Lady Sings The Blues (that album would actually arrive later in the year). By the mid-50’s, the 12 album format was established as the new record standard, phasing out the old 10 vinyl. Where Velvet Mood was an all-new Billie album, Solitude was a reissue of ‘52’s 10 album Billie Holiday Sings, expanded with new tracks including the haunting Duke Ellington masterpiece (In My) Solitude
