Billie Holiday - Storyville Radio Tapes 1951

This is Billie Holiday live at the Storyville Club, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The shows were recorded during a residency at the club in 1951 and broadcast the same year. Despite some research I am still uncertain if the dates cited (29th October to 1st November) refer to the actual show dates or radio broadcast dates. This is sourced from the more complete original radio tapes. Some of the tracks were digitally remastered and officially released on CD (see Amazon link below). Songs are repeated as the radio broadcasts most certainly covered different sessions and nights. Source: Radio Tapes (Pre Broadcast). Sound Quality: Good mono mp3@160kbps.
