Nina Simone
The Best Studio & Live Recordings

Nina Simone was a genuinely groundbreaking artist. A musician, composer and arranger with great skill and an expressive voice that told of her woes as she sang her songs. As great creative people often are, Nina Simone was tightly wound and prone to explosive fits of rage, but this only made her music all the more passionate. The Best Studio & Live Recordings is just that, split over a double LP.
