Fans of Simone's work will already have many of these recordings courtesy of other records, but casual listeners wanting to hear the softer side of this revolutionary jazz chanteuse will find this an excellent place to start, and will want to dig deeper into her rich back catalog.

I've never really listened to Nina Simone and I must say by the third song of this album, I was hooked! Needles to say I will be purchasing more of her work!
