THE MONO VERSION APPEARS HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON CD!!!

Lady in Satin, presented here in both its Stereo and Mono versions, marked Billie Holiday’s last big hit and her second to last album ever. It represents something close to her swan song. Although some live recordings made after that Columbia album exist, and she even made a second album with Ray Ellis for MGM, none of these documents were as enduring as Lady in Satin. Most jazz fans now consider Lady in Satin to be Holiday’s last great effort. The Mono version appears here on CD in its entirety for the first time ever.

Some of Billie’s last live performances, among them her complete 1958 Monterey Jazz Festival concert and a 1959 set at the Storyville Club in Boston, have been added here as a bonus.
