Billie Holiday - The Ultimate Collection

The 90th birthday of the legendary Billie Holiday is being celebrated with a first--her first multi-label multimedia retrospective. Billie Holiday: The Ultimate Collection released April 5, 2005, is the most comprehensive audio and video portrait of Lady Day ever created. This innovative non-linear DVD presents an artist with as much depth as has been displayed on DVD.

With 42 tracks spanning her entire recording career from 1935 to 1958 on two CDs, Billie Holiday: The Ultimate Collection also includes a DVD of astonishing rarities, from movie and television performances, audio interviews with musical contemporaries and Billie with 60 Minutes’ Mike Wallace, photos and documents, a complete major label discography and robust timeline.

Among the DVD’s highlights are three riveting video performances seen for the first time since their original broadcast on ABC Television’s 1956 “Stars Of Jazz": “My Man," “Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone" and “Billie’s Blues."
