✨✧ Nina SimoneEmergency Ward! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A great little album cut by Nina Simone during the time she was working with Weldon Irvine – a live album that really has the lady stretching out, and showing off all the cool, complicated grooves she brought to a concert setting! Weldon did the arrangements, and they've got a very righteous feel overall – which really seems to inspire Simone in her interpretations of the tunes, as she improvises a lot and really takes off with the lyrics! The album includes a really haunting version of "My Sweet Lord", the classic "Poppies", and a great poem/song called "Today Is A Killer" that goes on for over 15 minutes! LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneJazz As Played In An Exclusive Side Street Club ... LP
Bethlehem, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A classic set of early jazz recordings by Nina Simone – one of her first albums ever, but already with an approach that's quite different from other singers of the time! Nina's singing a fair bit of standards here, but she brings a deeply personal approach to the material – inflecting the tunes with gospel-inspired soul, and showing some very slight folksy touches – of the sort that would come in more heavily on later records. Backing is by a small combo, and tracks include "Plain Gold Ring", "Good Bait", "He Needs Me", "Don't Smoke In Bed", and "I Loves You Porgy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneSilk & Soul ... LP
RCA, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of Nina's first for RCA – a mixture of jazz and soul tunes handled with some classy arrangements by Sammy Lowe, most of which feature nice electric bass work at the bottom by Gene Taylor! Taylor's bass gives the tracks a nice "dip" that's not exactly funky, but does provide a strong kick that keeps things moving along nicely – in a way that points towards the direction Nina would take in the 70s, and which makes this album a fair bit hipper than some of her Philips work! Nina's not as over the top as on other records, but still lays it out quite hiply – and tracks include "Consummation", "Go To Hell", "Love O Love", "It Be's That Way Sometime", "Turn Me On", and "Some Say".

✨✧ Nina SimoneAmazing Nina Simone ... LP
Colpix, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing is right – as the album features Nina caught at a great early point in her career, delivering a mix of ballads and folkish tunes – all with the kind of emotion that has kept us listening to her over the years. The approach is simple, but legendary, and filled with righteous power even at this early stage in her recorded career! Arrangements are by Bob Mersey, and titles include "Blue Prelude", "You've Been Gone Too Long", "Chilly Winds Don't Blow", "Can't Get Out Of This Mood", and "That's Him Over There". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label deep groove pressing.)

✨✧ Nina SimoneBest Of Nina Simone (Philips) ... LP
Philips, Mid/Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Righteous and soulful! The work that Nina Simone did at Philips is among some of her best work ever – and this set features 10 great cuts that aren't always that easy to find on wax. Includes the anthemic feminist classic "Four Women", the slightly-funky "Mississippi Goddam", the moody "Wild Is The Wind", the righteous "Break Down & Let It All Out", and the heavenly version of "I Loves You, Porgy", which just about surpasses all other recorded versions! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneGifted & Black ... LP
Canyon, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't confuse this set with Young Gifted & Black – which got much wider circulation – as the session's a cool indie date from the early 70s, recorded in a moody studio mode with arrangements by Monk Higgins! There's a bit of strings in the background, which colors in the tunes with a melancholy feel – a sound that's a bit different than some of the more upbeat, righteous modes of other Simone sessions from the period – almost like Nina's taking a step back to evaluate herself, with somewhat striking results. The sound is somewhat echoey, which furthers the mood of the music – and titles include "Black Is The Color", "Since My Love Is Gone", "Blue Prelude", "Spring Is Here", "Porgy", "Remind Me", "Near To You", and "The Thrill Is Gone".

✨✧ Nina SimoneHere Comes The Sun ... LP
RCA, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic RCA work from the great Nina Simone – and an album that definitely shows Nina hitting more of the soul spectrum than some of her folk and jazz work of the 60s! The set's got these wonderful arrangements from Harold Wheeler – a bit electric, and done in a way that takes familiar tongs and completely recasts them for Nina's own vibe – a way of shifting the sense of spirit to unlock a special Simone-like quality you never would have expected in the tunes from anyone else! Titles include a great version of "Ooh Child", plus "Just Like A Woman", "Here Comes The Sun", "New World Coming", and "My Way". And the set also features Weldon Irvine's own composition, "How Long Must I Wander?" LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light surface wear and a small stain on the spine.)

✨✧ Nina SimoneIt Is Finished ... LP
RCA, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful work by Nina – the kind of record that once made purists turn up their noses, but which is now being rediscovered as a unique jazz/soul crossover album, filled with loads of nice moments! The instrumentation's pretty darn interesting – and includes sitar, harp, Spanish guitar, and other odd percussion instruments. Includes Nina's nice version of "Funkier Than a Mosquito's Tweeter", plus "I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl", "Dambala", "Obeah Woman", and "The Pusher". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneLet It All Out ... LP
Philips, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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", was recorded live – but overall, the album's got a warmly intimate feel that's really great, and which has Nina singing in that perfect righteous mode of the time. Titles include "Chauffeur", "The Other Woman", "This Year's Kisses", "Nearer Blessed Lord", "Ballad of Hollis Brown" and "Don't Explain". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing.)

Bethlehem/Salsoul, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic set of early jazz recordings by Nina Simone – one of her first albums ever, but already with an approach that's quite different from other singers of the time! Nina's singing a fair bit of standards here, but she brings a deeply personal approach to the material – inflecting the tunes with gospel-inspired soul, and showing some very slight folksy touches – of the sort that would come in more heavily on later records, but which is already shining pretty strongly here! Nina accompanies herself on some mighty soulful piano – with bass from Jimmy Bond and drums from Al Heath – on titles that include "Plain Gold Ring", "Good Bait", "He Needs Me", "Don't Smoke In Bed", and "I Loves You Porgy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneNina Simone At Carnegie Hall ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hip set of live tracks from Nina Simone – very dark and moody, with backing by only a small combo that includes two guitars, bass, and drums by Montego Joe. The songs are incredibly spare, with an approach that's intimate and emotional – almost stunningly so, considering the size and scope of the venue that Nina was performing in. Features a 7 minute reading of "The Other Woman" and "Cotton Eyed Joe" – plus "Black Swan", "If You Knew", "Theme From Sayonara", and "Will I Find My Love Today". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneNina Simone Live At Berkeley ... LP
Stroud, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer work from Nina Simone's excellent Stroud Productions run – a set that wasn't issued by RCA in the early 70s, but which really matches the fire of her classics for the label! The setting's a live one, as you'd guess from the title – and most tunes are longish, with those key improvisational moments that really started to set Simone apart from other jazz singers in the 60s – those richly creative moments in which Nina's taking the tunes and turning them on their heads – not just in her own vocal presentation of the lyrics, but also in her conception of the groove! Titles include "No Opportunity Necessary/No Experience Needed", "Assignment Song", "Four Women", "Ain't Got No/I Got Life", "Backlash Blues", and "To Be Young Gifted & Black". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo.)

✨✧ Nina SimoneBroadway Blues Ballads ... LP
Philips, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 Ott and Hal Mooney, Nina shifts modes and moods with effortless ease, turning songs from ordinary tunes into fierce expressions of righteous soul. Titles include "The Laziest Gal In Town", "Nobody", "I Am Blessed", "Of This I'm Sure", "See Line Woman", "Last Rose Of Summer", and "How Can I". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Nina SimoneRemixed & Reimagined ... LP
RCA/Legacy, Late 60s/Early 70s/2006. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A full set's worth of remixes of older Nina Simone tunes – served up hot on the heels of the big success of Simone songs from the Verve Remixed series! Ulike the Verve series, the work here is all pulled from Nina's RCA recordings of the late 60s and early 70s – some of her hippest work on record, and even better suited to this sort of modernization, given that the themes and styles of the originals were often years ahead of their time! There's a bit of a laidback feel to most of the mixes, one that sometimes diffuses the power of Nina's righteous intentions – but there's also some tracks here that are a lot more respectful of the originals than other sets of this nature. Titles include "Funkier Than A Mosquito's Tweeter (Jazzeem's All Styles rmx)", "Here Comes The Sun (Francois K rmx)", "Obeah Woman (DJ Logic rmx)", "Ooh Child (Nickodemus rmx)", "Turn Me On (Tony Humphries got U turned on dub)", "To Love Someone (Chris Coco's stadium rocker rmx)", and "My Man's Gone Now (DJ Wally rmx)."

✨✧ Nina SimoneBaltimore ... LP
CTI, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A real standout 70s set from Nina Simone – a one-off date for CTI Records, done with a sound that's different than her earlier work for RCA, Philips, and Colpix! The groove here is often as soul-based as it is vocal jazz – thanks to arrangements from David Matthews, who brings a similar sound here to his other work with Esther Phillips in the decade – another older singer who'd hit some very hip territory at the time. The groove here is very much like Phillips' best for Kudu – smooth and soulful, but in ways that still retain all the rasp and character of the lead vocals. Titles include a sublime reading of Randy Newman's excellent "Baltimore", plus "The Family", "My Father", "Music For Lovers", "Rich Girl", and "Balm In Gilead". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Amanda AmbroseAmanda Ambrose Recorded Live ... LP
RCA, 1963. Very Good- ... $1.99
Amazing early work from Amanda Ambrose – recorded in a style that's easily as hip as the best live sides from Nina Simone or Roberta Flack – but years before either singer sounded this great! The style is an ultra-hip version of jazz inflected with plenty of soul – reaching back into folk and gospel roots, but fusing the sound into a leaner, cleaner groove that often has a fair bit of rhythm – kind of in the manner of Oscar Brown Jr at his best from this time. Amanda plays piano, and the rest of her group features guitar, bass, drums, and some especially great percussion that drives the best numbers along nicely! Titles include "This Can't Be Love", "Besame Mucho", "A Foggy Day", "Lullaby For Toys", "Someone To Love", and "This Little Light Of Mine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing. Cover has moderate wear.)

Terry CallierNew Folk Sound Of Terry Callier ... LP
Prestige, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Terry Callier's first album – recorded in 1964 when he was a wee teen hanging around Chicago's folk scene! As the title indicates, the album's definitely got a folk-styled sound – but also as the "new" implies, it's got a sound all it's own, fresh and free – and that sound is the genius that is Terry Callier! This is very stripped down material, very dark and brooding – a good chance to hear Terry before he hit the Chess studios and they backed him up with a lot of orchestrations (although we love the orchestrations, too.) The material has a soulful spiritual feel, and is sung with a lot of passion over acoustic guitar. Think of Nina Simone's folksier stuff from the same time, if you need a reference. Tracks include "900 Miles", "Cotton Eyed Joe", "It's About Time", "Promenade In Green", and "I'm A Drifter". LP, Vinyl record album

Roberta FlackFirst Take ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good ... $5.99
What can we say? We've heard this one a million times, it sold over a million copies – but it's still incredible! The record is Roberta's first, and it features her in a mellow trio format, augmented by some occasional larger arrangements by William Fischer. At most points, though, the sound is incredibly spare – with vocals that are much more soulful than any of Roberta's other records, and a sound that hints at Nina Simone, but which has it's own jazzy groove and deep sense of feeling. Includes the classic funky version of "Compared To What", plus "Angelitos Negros", "Our Ages Our Our Hearts", and "Tryin Times". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lyn RomanMany Faces Of Lyn Roman ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A bit jazz, a bit soul, and a great little set from Lyn Roman – a lesser-known vocalist from the 60s, but one who could have easily cracked the mainstream! The set's in a space that's somewhere between Etta James and Nina Simone, produced with a bit of a country soul feel by Clyde Otis – who uses fuller strings alongside bluesier rhythms, plus some backing vocals that link the record to similar efforts from Brook Benton or Ray Charles! Lyn's got vocal pipes that really burst out strongly at times – searching her way through the mellower tunes especially, in ways that remind us of James, but are slightly more poised as well. Titles include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Fly Me To The Moon", "A Certain Smile", "The End Of A Love Affair", "Imagination", and "Moon River". LP, Vinyl record album
(2 eye mono promo. Cover has light wear & some marker on the back.)

Light In The Attic, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty cool compilation – especially if you're looking to turn the younger set onto some groovy music! And by "younger set", we mean those 10 years old and younger – as most of these songs are the perfect sort to play for littler kids who've been getting force-fed a diet of mainstream pop, kiddie TV, and American Idol-type music – all tracks that are from surprisingly cool, groovy sources – including some 60s and 70s artists you may well already have in your collection! Most of this music wasn't written specifically for kids, and you'd hardly find most of these under a conventional heading of "children's music" – but if you, like we, respect that most young minds are sharper than most folks give them credit for, then you'll find yourself with plenty of mind-sharpening songs on this set! Titles include "You Can Sing A Rainbow" by Nina Simone, "Occapella" by Van Dyke Parks, "One Was Johnny" by Carole King, "The Town/Me & My Arrow" by Nilsson, "Pinball Number Count" by The Pointer Sisters, "The Mandolin Man & His Secret" by Donovan, "Running In The Green Grass" by Miss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th Grade Class, "Diamond Day" by Vashti Bunyan, "Jenny Jenkins" by Jerry Garcia & David Grisman, "Rainbow Connection" by Kermit The Frog, and "Daddy What If" by Bobby Bare.
