BILLIE HOLIDAY

Billie Holiday – My Man

The song was created in France – where it was a hit for Mistinguett, a French actress and singer –  in 1916 – it became popular in the English speaking world in the 1920s with the 1921 recording by Ziegfeld Follies singer Fanny Brice. The ballad version recorded by Brice was modified by Billie Holiday, who introduced a jazz/blues recording of “My Man”.
