Vinyl LP - $18.99

Wax Love presents a reissue of Billie Holiday's "Billie's Blues", originally released as Ladylove in 1962. Though she had been performing professionally since the late 1920s, as a teenager in Harlem during it's Renaissance, the immortal Billie Holiday didn't play a single night on the European continent until 1954. It was in that year that the great journalist and musician Leonard Feather and a Swedish promoter organized the Jazz Club U.S.A. tour, named after Feather's wildly popular radio program. Featuring Red Norvo, Sonny Clark, and more, the centerpiece of Jazz Club U.S.A. was, undoubtedly, Lady Day. Recorded at various dates across the tour, Billie's Blues shows Holiday still had it, despite the turmoil, and drug and alcohol abuse, her voice remained strong, a stunning document of one of America's greatest treasures on her first ever tour of Europe. Includes an introduction by Leonard Feather. Reissued here with five bonus tracks.
