My Sweet Hunk O’ Trash - Billie Holiday (featuring Louis Armstrong), originally released on the album "The Blues Are Brewin’" (1958), appears on the 2 CD compilation box set "The Complete Decca Recordings" (1991, all tracks remastered).

Billie: Listen hear, Pops. You know you lie about your youth
Louis: I don’t lie, baby, I’m just careless about the truth!
Billie: How careless can you be?
Louis: I dunno
Billie: With all young chicks, you try to make a flash
Louis: No, baby, it ain’t like that, no
Billie: But you’re still my good for nothing, my sweet hunk o’ trash!

More Armstrong. Even better: With Lady Day.
