An Evening with Billie Holiday (MG C-144) is the second 10 inch LP studio album by jazz singer Billie Holiday, released by Clef Records in 1953.

Contents

In 1956, when the 10inch format was phased out, the album was reissued by Clef with the same artwork, and seven of the eight tracks, as a twelve-inch LP called A Recital By Billie Holiday (MG C-686). The track "Tenderly", was moved to another 12 inch compilation called Solitude. Five additional tracks were added that had been previously released on her third 10"LP, simply titled Billie Holiday.
