Billie Holiday Sings (MGC-118) is a 10-inch LP album made by jazz singer Billie Holiday, released in the United States by Clef Records in 1952. It was her first album for the label, and her first album of original material, following several compilations of previously released 78rpm sides for Columbia, Commodore, and Decca

Album Billie Holiday Sings. In my solitude you haunt me With reveries of days gone by In my solitude you taunt me With memories that never die. I sit in my chair Filled with despair Nobody could be so sad With gloom ev'rywhere I sit and I stare I know that I'll soon go mad. In my solitude I'm praying Dear Lord above Send back my love. Solitude" Track Info. Billie Holiday Sings Billie Holiday.

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.

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
