Billie Holiday - P.S. I Love You (Verve Records 1954)

Denny Farrell played this on his Late Night Chicago Radio show. What a great lyric by Johnny Mercer. The grandmaster of lyric writing and, what a great rendition by Billie - the song and the voice will be in my head forever.
PS: Thanks for the name check Denny.
Listen here for those cool Chicago sounds.
