God Bless The Child is a 14-cut compilation of the singer's studio work for Columbia Records from 1935 to 1942, when she was 20 to 27. Her voice is bright and smiling and the arrangements (most played by Teddy Wilson and his orchestra) are perky and swinging. Even "My Man, which later became one of her most anguished signature songs, appears at an optimistic mid-tempo.
