Nina Simone's finest hour
Simply the finest album in my collection. She reminds me of Ella fitzgerald; may they both rest in peice.
This is a truly breathtaking overview of Simone's Philips catalog (now issued by Verve) and one of the single finest discs in my collection. There are so many Nina Simone compilations it can be difficult to choose, but if you're looking for an introduction to Nina Simone's singular talent there's no finer choice than this collection, culled from the highlights of her recordings with Philips, unquestionably her finest period. Every track is essential - all killer, no filler.
