EDITORS’ NOTES

This 1965 set finds Simone working a cappella (“Be My Husband”), and interpreting classics made famous by Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith (“Strange Fruit,” “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out”). She also delivers “Sinnerman,” a traditional tune rearranged into a rousing anthem by this jazz and blues icon.
