Nina Simone was a great pianist, a riveting vocalist, and an uncompromising personality. Her sociopolitical consciousness and eclecticism set her apart from the pack. Her interpretations of soul, jazz, blues, and standards are both striking and unique; not for nothing do her fans refer to her as "the Goddess." She established her jazz credentials with an emotive interpretation of George Gershwin 's 'I Loves You Porgy' in 1959. Her influential '60s work included "Forbidden Fruit" and "I Put A Spell On You." One of her singles, "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood," later became a worldwide hit for the Animals. In later years, she recorded less frequently, but in 1987, while in self-imposed exile in France, she had a fluke hit after her '50s version of "My Baby Just Cares For Me," was resurrected in a TV commercial. Simone died in 2003 at her home in France at age 70.

Sorry but voted cold. I bought this CD last time around and the sound quality of disc 1 is terrible - as if recorded in a bucket! I don't think this is a fault with the original recording, more like inept transferring of the recording onto CD. I have some of the disc 1 tracks in vinyl and the quality is fine. Way better than the CD.

I'd be interested in anyone else's experience with this.

I got something similar for 29p in some sort of 29p-album-download deal on Amazon, if my memory serves correct.....

The best track is, of course, 'I Put a Spell on You'.

Cheap tat. Alright if on a budget, but this is always this price for example when it was in stock at HMV (hmv.com/hmv…860). There are much better Simone comps around for the same price. Colder than Mr Freeze.

Awesome cool.

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="5"][COLOR="DarkRed"]There seem to be loads of rubbish simone albums knocking about. Terrible live versions recorded on a walkman. Worth paying a few bob more and getting a decent collection on a proper record label![/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
