After WWII, Billie Holiday, who had risen to fame in NYC, began to tour the West Coast extensively. The rare tracks on this album were recorded live during those post-war years in San Francisco and L.A. The tracks on side A, taken from a concert in San Francisco in the fall of 1946, find Billie at the top of her game, despite some inevitable surface noise due to the tracks being salvaged from old 78 acetates. The first four tracks on Side B, on the other hand, were recorded in L.A. sometime between 1944 and 1947, with a sextet led by the great Tiny Grimes on guitar, while the last two tunes (Easy To Love and Tenderly) were recorded sometime around 1952, with a superb back-up group featuring pianist Oscar Peterson and guitarist Barney Kessel. Tracklist: - SIDE A: 1. The Man I Love 2. All of Me 3. Gee, Baby, Ain't I Good to You? 4. Strange Fruit 5. Billies Blues 6. Body and Soul. SIDE B: 1. Rocky Mountain Blues 2. Blue Turning Gray Over You 3. Detour Ahead 4. Be Fair to Me 5. Easy to Love 6. Tenderly.
