France GallFrance Gall (1964) ... LP
Philips/Twitchin Beat (Germany), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... About September 10, 2016
Early work by one of the grooviest singers in the French pop scene of the 60s – the lovely France Gall, working here with some very swinging arrangements from Alain Gouraguer! The grooves are wonderful throughout – sometimes jazzy, sometimes more in a "yeh yeh" pop vein ... (French, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... On September 30, 2016
Don't let the "broadway" or the "blues" or the "ballads" in the title put you off – because this album's way more than any of those! As usual, Nina takes tunes that have common roots and she makes them all her own – working here with arrangements by Horace ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneHigh Priestess Of Soul ... LP
Philips/Verve, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... On September 30, 2016
Classic work from Nina Simone – and an album that definitely lives up to its title! Nina Simone certainly emerged as the high priestess of soul during her monumental stretch for Philips Records in the 60s – as she moved way past jazz, way past some of the folk she'd begun tapping into, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneI Put A Spell On You ... LP
Philips, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... On September 30, 2016
Captivating work by Nina – working here in that unique crossover style she was using in the mid 60s – a blend of jazz and soul arrangements that were perfect for her intimate folksy style. The album's one of her first few for Philips, and it really has her opening things up a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... On September 30, 2016
Excellent Philips work by Nina – a set of tracks that mostly features spare combo backings from Rudy Stevenson on guitar and flute, Bobby Hamilton on drums, and Lisle Atkinson on bass. One track, "For Myself", features arrangements by Horace Ott – and another, "Images&quo ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... On September 30, 2016
Classic Nina – recorded live on a variety of familiar numbers, but in that incredible mode that always transforms songs completely, lifting them from their roots and turning them into amazingly fierce proclamations of power and emotion! The tracks are longish, at a level that allows for a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimonePastel Blues ... LP
Philips, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... On September 30, 2016
Wonderful stuff from Nina Simone – working here still with one foot in the jazzier style of early days, but with haunting elements of the later progressive style to come! The "pastel" in the title shouldn't imply any sort of softness on Nina's part, because if anything, she's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneWild Is The Wind ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... On September 30, 2016
A landmark album from Nina – one that broke down countless barriers with the classic tune "Four Women" – a righteous portrait of 4 different women and their struggles, unique for its time, and a key part of the early Women's Liberation movement! The rest of the album has a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
