Billie Holiday Sings Detour Ahead, also Recorded by Joe Williams as arranged by Sun Ra

Going through some old vinyl and I came across this Billie Holiday album. Click here for a link to Detour Ahead:

The song Detour Ahead was also recorded by Joe Williams with the Red Saunders Orchestra in 1953 with Sun Ra doing the arrangements. There is a great CD release called "Joe Williams Sings". I highly recommend getting a copy of it. Try this link:

This version of Billie Holiday singing "Detour Ahead" is very sweet.

Tenderly From the album "Some Blues But Not The Kind That's Blue"

I love this song. I just rediscovered it on the new release titled "The Eternal Myth - Vol 1.", produced by Michael Anderson (The Good Doctor). An old verison from 1950 of this song can be found on disc 5 (track 15).
