AllMusic Review by

AIN'T NOBODY'S BUSINESS is a compilation of live recordings by Billie Holiday. Along with the title track, the collection features songs Holiday made famous such as "My Man," "Lover Man," and "Good Morning Heartache." Holiday also performs two of her own compositions, "Fine and Mellow" and "Billie's Blues," as well as the classic tunes "I Cover the Waterfront" and Duke Ellington's "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me." On these undated recordings, Lady Bird is in fine form, but the sound quality of the recordings themselves is spotty, making this more of an interesting historical document than an essential album.
