Lady Love: Live In Basel is a live album by Billie Holiday performing live in Switzerland in 1954. It was originally released as Ladylove in 1962.
The recording was originally attributed to a concert in Cologne from the same tour but tapes from that concert have been found and released separately.
The 2015 release on the Poll Winners Records labels also includes:
- five earlier studio tracks that had previously been added to the Lady Love album,
- four 1951 Aladdin sides with the Tiny Grimes Sextet,
- her Capitol recording of ‘Trav lin Light‘ with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra,
- the complete live performance in Brussels on the same tour in 1954.
