'More Than You Know ' Sung by Billie Holiday

When I was a child of around eight or ten Billie Holiday had a weekly variety show on television. I can remember watching and not having much reaction. Then I didn't see or hear her for many years. When I was around nineteen or twenty I heard a recording of her singing and was blown away. I started collecting her albums and listened to her often. I can't remember what song it was that so affected me at the end of my teens. Butit could have been 'More Than You'll Know' or possibly 'Summertime.'
