INCLUDES 13 BONUS TRACKS

The complete original album LadyLove (United Artists Jazz UAJ-14014), which contains a complete concert from Billie Holiday’s 1954 European tour recorded in Basel, Switzerland. To that fabulous performance, we have added five earlier studio tracks (which had been included as bonus material on previous reissues of the LadyLove LP), the four 1951 Aladdin sides with the Tiny Grimes Sextet, and her Capitol recording of “Trav’lin’ Light” with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra. As a further bonus, we have also added an extremely rare complete live performance taped by Billie in Brussels during the same tour on which the Basel show was taped.
