Nina SimoneNina Simone At Town Hall (180 gram dark pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Colpix/4 Men With Beards, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
An important early live show for Nina Simone – a move from the world of small nightclubs (as mentioned in the title of her first record), to the classy Town Hall venue – working in front of an audience filled with left-leaning listeners who were the perfect crowd to get the unique bag she was working on at the time! The performance is a great one – mellow, moody, and a bit folksy – with Nina singing and playing piano with power that really rings out in the larger space – really egged on by the enthusiastic response of the audience. Titles include her classic reading of "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair", plus "The Other Woman", "Under The Lowest", "Summertime", "You Can Have Him", "Wild Is The Wind", "Return Home", and "Cotton Eyed Joe".

✨✧ Nina SimonePastel Blues ... LP
Philips, 1965. Very Good ... $59.99
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 really sharpening up her game a lot here – packing a punch that wasn't allowed so strongly on some of her earlier recordings. The album features an incredible 10 minute version of "Sinnerman", arranged by Nina with complicated jazzy riffing and a nice breakdown in the middle that's completely sublime – and other tracks include "Be My Husband", "End Of The Line", "Chilly Winds Don't Blow", "Strange Fruit", and "Ain't No Use". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Nina SimoneSings The Blues (expanded edition) ... CD
RCA, 1967. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Nina's not just singing the blues here – she's completely reinventing the sound of the format – by drawing on a long tradition of vocal expression, and infusing it with the hipper, more personally exploratory mode she forged in the 60s! The album's got a subtle brilliance that means that it's sometimes overlooked next to her more forceful work of the time – but it's every bit essential Simone as some of her other key sides of the decade. The group is a small combo featuring Eric Gale, Bernard Purdie, Buddy Lucas, and Ernest Hayes – and titles include "I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl", "Do I Move You?", "In The Dark", "Real Real", and "Backlash Blues". CD features bonus tracks "Whatever I Am (You Made Me)" and "Do I Move You (second version)". CD

Nina SimoneSinnerman (Felix Da Housecat's Heavenly House ext voc, inst, & main, original) – Verve Remixed 2 ... 12-inch
Verve, 2003. Near Mint- ... $36.99
Nina Simone hits a house groove – thanks to some tight remixing by Felix Da Housecat! "Sinnerman" first appeared on Nina's classic Pastel Blues album – but here, it's pumped up in a few different mixes that were all part of the Verve Remixed 2 project. The vocals are extremely haunting – really echoing out with that magic tone that Nina always had – and even all the beats and keys can't get in the way of the tune's soulful finish! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Nina SimoneBaltimore ... CD
CTI, 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily 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". CD

RCA, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 SimoneI Put A Spell On You ... LP
Philips, 1964. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 – going for a new range of expression that includes influences that wouldn't have been heard on her sets a few years back. And as some great examples, the album includes a classic rendition of "Feeling Good", plus "Take Care of Business", "Gimme Some", Jacques Brel's "Ne MeQuitte Pas" and the title track, "I Put A Spell On You", which is an incredible reworking of the classic by Screaming Jay Hawkins!

✨✧ Nina SimoneSilk & Soul (expanded edition) ... CD
RCA, 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD features bonus tracks "Save Me" and "Why Must Your Love Well Be So Dry". CD

✨✧ Nina SimoneGifted & Black ... LP
Canyon, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... 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".

Bethlehem, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... 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. 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 SimoneNina Simone With Strings ... LP
Colpix, 1966. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Only Nina could make us love a "strings" setting so much – moving past the sleepiness that usually graces such vocal albums, and using the backings to give her work an added level of majesty and power that we really really love! The feel is a bit like some of Nina's later Philips recordings – in that the larger arrangements are used to hint at larger moods and concepts that lurk behind familiar and folksy tracks. The approach is most famously heard on the album's incredible reading of "I Loves You Porgy" – but all titles are great, and other tunes include "Pigs Foot & A Bottle Of Beer", "Chain Gang", "The Man With The Horn", and "Falling In Love".

✨✧ Nina SimoneColpix Singles – Mono ... LP
Colpix/Parlophone, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of early work from the legendary Nina Simone – singles that were originally issued by the Colpix label at the start of the 60s – a company who really let Nina find her own space in music! The sounds here really show the important transition Nina took over her short time with the label – from a straight jazz singer to one who could effortlessly blend together blues and folk influences – and come up with an approach that not only made the music her own, but also pushed an agenda of change in subtle and powerful ways. Nina's live albums for Colpix are well-known, but there's been much less focus on her singles for the company until this collection – which brings together all these rare gems, many in their original 45rpm versions for the first time since they were issued in the early 60s. Arrangements are by Stu Phillips, Ralph Burns, Bob Mersey, and even Nina herself – and titles include "The Other Woman", "If Only For Tonight", "Summertime", "Work Song", "In The Evening By The Moonlight", "I Got It Bad", "Gin House Blues", "Come On Back Jack", "Since My Love Has Gone", "Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out", "Children Go Where I Send You", and "Chilly Winds Don't Blow".

RCA/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wonderful later live work by Nina – who despite the title was anything but finished – this a vital set of diverse songs with some really unique instrumentation backing her up! It's the kind of record that once made purists turn up their noses, but which is now being rediscovered as a distinctive jazz & soul hybrid, filled with loads of nice moments! The arrangements are really interesting – and includes sitar, harp, Spanish guitar, and African percussion instruments – all in the service of Nina's takes on song great songs like the "The Pusher", and really nice version of "Funkier Than a Mosquito's Tweeter", "Com' By H'Yere-Good Lord", "I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl", "Dambala", "Obeah Woman", "Mr Bojangles" and "Let It Be Me".

Ulysses Owens JrSongs Of Freedom – The Music of Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln, & Joni Mitchell ... CD
Resilience, 2019. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Key proof that great songs never get old – and maybe even more, that the political messages of yesterday still have plenty of power today! Drummer Ulysses Owens mines the righteous territory of the 60s and 70s here – bringing together songs originally performed by Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln, and Joni Mitchell – all with a fresher, more contemporary approach that resonates surprisingly strongly – especially given the superb vocals on the album by Rene Marie, Theo Bleckmann, Alicia Olatuja, and Joanna Majoko! You'll no doubt know some of these songs – and most of the originals have been inspiring us for many years – but Owens finds a great way to open them up and make them sound even more vibrant, working with a group that also includes Allyn Johnson on Fender Rhodes and Hammond, David Rosenthal on guitars, and Reuben Rogers on bass. Titles include "Balm In Gilead", "Borderline", "Driva Man", "Baltimore", "Everything Must Change", "Freedom Day", "Be My Husband", "Mississippi Goddamn", and "Both Sides Now". CD

Terry CallierNew Folk Sound Of Terry Callier (180 gram 2LP expanded edition) ... LP
Prestige/Craft, 1964. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 34.99
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". This expanded edition includes bonus tracks – "Be My Woman", "Jack O' Diamonds", and "The Golden Apples Of The Sun" – plus alternate takes of "Promenade In Green" and "900 Miles".

Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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

Beverly Glenn-CopelandBeverly Copeland ... LP
CBC/Return To Analog (Canada), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Completely sublime work from Beverly Glenn Copeland – a really unique artist who's almost a genre unto herself – and who sings here in a mix of folk, jazz, and soul – maybe resonant with work at the time by Terry Callier or Nina Simone, but every bit as individual as the best from those two giants too! The performance was recorded by CBC at a key moment in Beverly's career – after a time she'd spent on the scene in Montreal, really soaking up different influences and exploring musical pathways away from her American roots – to a point where she emerges here as a very righteous, yet very personal singer – clearly not immediately interested in chart success, even though she's got the power of a young Roberta Flack. Titles include "Northwind", "Swords Of Gold", "Don't Despair", "Nothing Beautiful", "Song From Beads", "Untitled", "Interval", "Reflections", and "Durocher". LP, Vinyl record album

Nodlew, 1972. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Landmark early work from the legendary Weldon Irvine – recorded way back when he was first coming to fame with Nina Simone, but done as an obscure indie effort for his tiny Nodlew label! The set's a wicked batch of keyboard-heavy funk – at a level that's similar to some of the best titles on Black Jazz or Strata East at the time, but also filled with an even richer array of colors and musical ideas. Weldon's work on electric piano is worth the price of admission alone – often spare, spacious, and perfectly placed – especially on the funky classics "Homey", "Mr Clean", and "Sister Sanctified" – a tune later cut by Stanley Turrentine, but heard here in Weldon's original version! Other cuts include "Gloria", "Juggah Buggah", "Blues Wel-Don", and "Liberated Brother". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousHallelujah – The Songs Of Leonard Cohen ... CD
Ace (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
A wonderful tribute to the songwriting genius of Leonard Cohen – one that begins with some of his key contemporaries taking on his important songs – then stretches out over the space of decades, to show just how important Cohen's material has been to more contemporary performers! In fact, given that Leonard never really cracked the charts during his early run for Columbia Records, he's actually maybe been one of those artists who are more "musicians' musicians", or "singers' singers" – because his talents have been a huge inspiration to so many other creators – a bit like the statement once made about the Velvet Underground, that they never sold many records – but every one of those records seemed to find a place in the hands of people who were then inspired by them. The package features the usual great Ace Records attention to detail, which includes copious notes on the material, and lots of the history behind the songs – for titles that include "Tower Of Song" by Marianne Faithfull, "Sisters Of Mercy" by Dion, "Lover Lover Lover" by David Blue, "Hey That's No Way To Say Goodbye" by Judy Collins, "Everybody Knows" by Barb Jungr, "Heart With No Companion" by Ron Sexsmith, "True Love Leaves No Traces" by Tom Northcott, "First We Take Manhattan" by Joe Cocker, "Avalanche" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, "Chelsea Hotel No 2" by Rufus Wainwright, "Hallelujah" by Jeff Buckley, "Famous Blue Raincoat" by Marissa Nadler, "Suzanne" by Nina Simone, "Come Spend The Morning" by Lee Hazlewood, and "God Is Alive Magic Is Afoot" by Buffy Sainte Marie.

Ace (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A wild assortment of music from an equally wild source – a BBC Radio program hosted by Jarvis Cocker, presented on Sunday mornings as a way to relax and reach some sort of deeper spiritual consciousness! The show was never churchy – but maybe an attempt to find a new sort of inner peace during the modern age – with a selection of songs in a really great range, all linked by the dry wit and understated presence of Cocker as an announcer. This set brings together key tracks from the early years of the show – music that spans decades, and runs from jazz vocal numbers, to electronic music nuggets, 70s AOR, underground folk, and a number of more recent tracks that show that Jarvis has continually had his ear on the rock underground around the globe. The blend is incredibly hard to describe in words, but a delight to hear on record – and the whole thing comes with detailed notes on the track selections from Cocker himself. Titles include "Snowed In" by Tim Rose, "Day Glo" by Serafina Steer, "Cold Rain" by Alternative TV, "Won't That Be A Happy Time" by Joseph & Louis Spence, "Old Molly Metcalfe" by Jake Thackery, "Waters Of March" by Art Garfunkel, "It's A Quiet Thing" by Morgana King, "Rock Intro" by Miranda July, "After The Gold Rush" by The King's Singers, "Invasion Muzak" by John Baker, "True Love Will Find You In The End" by Headless Heroes, "Cars" by The Katzenjammers, "Crazy In Love" by Antony & The Johnsons, "Don't Wait Too Long" by Bob Welch, "Baltimore" by Nina Simone, "December" by David Cain/Derek Boswell, "Gynopedie No 3" by Camarata Contemporary Chamber Group, and "The Interrogative Mood" by Jarvis Cocker & David Cunningham.
