A complete Holiday set recorded at Newport during the same period has been added as a bonus.

"Billie for me was the incarnation of soul, of living intensity; she was everything that has ever been connoted by the word glamour. She was sweet, sour, kind, mean, generous, blasphemous, loving and lovable, and nobody who ever knew her expects there ever again to be anyone quite like her."
Leonard Feather - Down Beat (1959)
