Jazz vocalist Billie Holiday was born April 7, 1915, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Considered one of the best jazz vocalists of all time, Holiday had a thriving career as a jazz singer for many years before she lost her battle with substance abuse. Her autobiography was made into the 1972 film Lady Sings the Blues. In 2000, Billie Holiday was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

1958 "Lady In Satin" album on Columbia Records. Mono version. The mono issue had one extra song that the stereo issue did not, "The End Of A Love Affair". This song was not mixed to stereo until decades later. One of the best vocal jazz albums of all time!
