    With 15 discs and a 68-page booklet, this manageably sized box set collects all the master takes Billie Holiday recorded between 1933 and 1959, and while the sound quality occasionally dips, it hardly negates what a treasure this set is. The legend is laid out here, from the joyous small-group recordings she did in the 1930s to the ragged, exhausted, but riveting recordings of her last years. ~ Steve Leggett
