Two albums on one disc. Recorded in New York Los Angeles, 1954-56. Lady Sings the Blues comes through as a characteristic, satisfyingly troubling, indelible Billie monologue. No other singer now in jazz gets so fully into the bloodstream as Billie still does. Stay with Me is it's inevitable coda, late period Billie and well worth a listen in it's own right.
