A great photo, often mis-labeled as "Young Billie Holiday." As several people have pointed out, the era is wrong. This lovely woman is Yourna Byrd, wife of jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd. She was photographed on Street in NYC in 1960 by William Claxton
I started listening to Sade in the early on a record player before 8 tracks or at least my knowledge of 8 tracks. I was little and that album is still my favorite of hers "Love is Stronger than Pride". She is part of me.
