Customer Reviews

the others must be speechless...and yet

this album has so much soul in it, it hurts because it's so real. She lays it out on the line, every time, but here Simone is just so real. I can't believe no one else has reviewed this album yet. A true treasure, one I know I'll return to my whole life.

Stunning album

This album absolutely drips with Nina's raw emotions. She pulls it out from deep inside and puts it all out on the table and says, "here it is... take it or leave it." I've always been a fan of hers, but this album is my favorite by far. Such strength, sorrow, and the live feel behind these tracks makes this album a rare find.

Great Album

Nina Simone really puts the hurt on you with this album. It has so much soul that even Big Luther could take a few lessons away from it. A great album that is simply amazing.
