If this is blues, it's blues in the Billie Holiday sense, not the Muddy Waters one. This is one of Nina Simone's more subdued mid-'60s LPs, putting the emphasis on her piano rather than band arrangements.
This collection of songs is drawn from the early years of her releases and very much reflects her diversity of musical choices. Her work is amongst the very best and this album is a taster of her immense talent
This release compiles a collection of rare tracks from the early stages of Nina Simone’s career. It is presented here for the first time ever on a single set. Among the treasures are her seldom heard earliest recordings, made in Atlantic City in 1956
