CBS, 1981. Very Good ... $3.99
An album with a love-styled title, but one that's a lot darker than you might expect – put together with some of the moodier undercurrents you might find in the work of Maria Bethania, although with Simone's own sense of musical balance overall.

Odeon (Brazil), 1969. Very Good ... $24.99
The title kind of gives this one away – as the album features Elza's incredible vocals over a set of hard-driving carnival tracks, most with lively samba rhythms.
