Nina SimoneBaltimore ... LP
CTI, 1978. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
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

Nina SimoneBest Of Nina Simone (Philips) ... CD
Philips/Polygram, Mid/Late 60s. Used ... $1.99
Righteous and soulful! The work that Nina Simone did at Philips is among some of her best work ever – and this set features 12 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!

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 (Bethlehem pressing) ... LP
Bethlehem, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $24.99
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 SimoneNina Simone & Piano! ... CD
RCA, 1969. Used ... $3.99
A strong back to basics session for Nina, one that featured her piano and vocals only, a very spare approach that was markedly different from her work a few years previously for other labels. Nina's tone on the piano is incredible – and she's working with some striking modern jazz changes that offset the folksiness of her vocals in a fantastic way, creating a sound that's a lot fuller than you'd expect! Titles include "Seems I'm Never Tired Lovin You", "Compensation", "Everyone's Gone To The Moon", "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "I Think It's Going To Rain Today", "The Desperate Ones", "The Human Touch", and "Another Spring". Also includes four bonus tracks – "Music For Lovers", "In The Love Vain", "I'll Look Around", and "The Man With The Horn". CD

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 SimoneSings The Blues (expanded edition) ... CD
RCA, 1967. Used ... $3.99
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 SimoneColpix Singles – Mono ... LP
Colpix/Parlophone, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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".

Bethlehem, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unusual look at the earliest work of singer Nina Simone – as the set presents all her original Bethlehem Records 45s – all in their rare mono mixes! The tracks here were all issued as singles, but almost all of them came from the sessions for the album Jazz As Played In An Exclusive Side Street Club – 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!

The collection also features the stunning "African Mailman" – one of Nina's most hard-wailing groovers ever – and an alternate take on "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands". Very cool package – with a bonus replica 7" single of "Porgy" and "Love Me Or Leave Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, 1964. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 bit of improvisation that shows that Nina's spirit was always burning creatively – and the album includes a great version of Nina's classic "Mississippi Goddam", plus "Plain Gold Ring", "I Loves You, Porgy", "Don't Smoke In Bed", and "Go Limp".

Philips, 1965. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
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".

PM/Shout (Japan), 1969/1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very rare evening indeed – a sweet little live set recorded by Nina Simone during her soulful height at RCA – but issued years after that time, and only briefly on a small indie label! The setting here is wonderful – a small combo in the background with the great Weldon Irvine on Hammond, playing these soulful lines that are mighty lean and plenty powerful – spurred on by rhythms from Al Shackman on guitar, Gene Perla on bass, and Don Alias on drums! The record also features two female backup singers on a few cuts – giving the album an almost Sweet Inspirations like touch at moments – but overall, the feel is straight hip Nina – that unique blend of soul, folk, and jazz that pushed things to the next level at the end of the 60s! Includes the great original "Revolution", plus the track "The Other Woman", "In The Morning", "Ain't Go No/I Got Life", "Save Me", and "To Love Somebody". CD

✨✧ Nina SimoneWild Is The Wind/High Priestess Of Soul ... CD
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great 2-in-1 CD that combines two of Nina's best late 60s LPs! Wild Is The Wind was issued during the period when Nina Simone was being given more and more freedom to express herself in a unique way that blended jazz, soul, and folk into a very memorable style. The record features Nina's classic "Four Women", a haunting portrait of 4 different women, and the personal struggles they face. Other nice tracks include "Break Down & Let It All Out", "Either Way I Lose", "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair", and "That's All I Ask". High Priestess is more classic Nina! The longer she recorded on Philips, the more freedom Nina was given to open things up (probably because of the success of her daring "Four Women" track) – and this record, cut later in her years at Philips, features Nina doing a great batch of tracks with a very righteous vibe. Titles include "Come Ye", "I Hold No Grudge", "I'm Going Back Home", "I'm Gonna Leave You", "Take Me To The Water", and "The Gal From Joe's". Also includes one of Nina's many great readings of "Work Song". CD

✨✧ 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".

Roberta FlackFirst Take ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Sealed ... $14.99
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

Lonnie HolleyMith ... CD
Jagjaguwar, 2018. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Lonnie Holley has always been very much his own man – in his artwork, in his cultural presence, and even in his music – which has always been pretty darn hard to describe! Holley sings with the up-close expressiveness of a jazz singer, yet also references plenty of bluesy roots as well – but never in a mode that's blues at all, even though that's where so many others try to put him! Instead, it's almost like Holley is inventing his own sort of musical style – a bit like Terry Callier did at the start of the 70s, or Nina Simone a few years before – and while Lonnie's mode is completely different than Terry's and Nina's, it also shares a similar complexity, spirituality, and immediate sense of identity. Holley plays piano, often in these weird echoey, fluid modes – and other instrumentation includes equally echoey percussion, moog, trombone, and some very cool tape and electronics – on titles that include "I'm A Suspect", "I Snuck Off The Slave Ship", "Copying The Rock", "There Was Always Water", "How Far Is Spaced Out", "I Woke Up In A F*cked Up America", and "Back For Me".

Jose JamesDreamer (2LP 10th Anniversary Edition) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Brownswood/Rainblow Blonde, 2007. New Copy 2LP ... On April 13, 2019
The stunning debut of a really tremendous talent – a singer we'd put right up there with Jon Lucien or Terry Callier for his uniquely soulful approach to music! Like both of those previous stars, Jose James has a voice that's completely his own – a way of approaching a tune that instantly defies genres – but never in those cloying cliched ways that weigh down the Starbucks generation of singer/songwriters! Instead, James has a breathy presence that reminds us of Nina Simone at her best – and like Callier, he's clearly informed by jazz, but not truly a jazz singer – more of an open-minded cat who's able to embrace a broad history of sound, then work it out into his own personal musical vision. Instrumentation here is mostly small combo – piano, keyboards, guitar, trumpet, bass, and drums – used in a simple but shifting array to fit the mood of each new tune. Trust us, this is one you'll file with your classics right away! Titles include "Spirits Up Above", "Blackeyedsusan", "The Dreamer", "Velvet", "Red", "Winterwind", "Desire", "Love", and "Park Bench People". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Sunday, April 14.

Alif TreeFrench Cuisine ... CD
Compost (Germany), 2006. Used ... $3.99
One of the most compelling sets we've heard from Compost in years – a nicely laidback record that has a lot more subtle touches than some of the label's recent work, and which also brings a uniquely French feel to the mostly-German Compost sound! Alif Tree handles most of the music here himself, but also allows space for older voices to drift through the work – bits of Michel Legrand, Claude Nougaro, Anna Karina, Shirley Horn, and Nina Simone that all contribute gently to the sparely jazzy soundscape of the set. The approach is one that might be cloying in the hands of another, but Alif has a nice talent for understatement that makes things work, while also avoiding other downtempo cliches. Titles include "Deadly Species", "Belle", "My Soul", "Enough", "L'Amor Nunca Muere", "I Feel Blue", "Rain River", and "Les 4 Vents". CD

VariousCool Heat – The Best Of CTI Records ... CD
CTI/Robinsongs (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99
A great introduction to the legendary CTI Records label from the 70s – a groundbreaking imprint for both jazz and soul, and a company who helped a whole generation of musicians find a new way forward! The set's got a really great balance – with both some of the funky jazz and soulful vocal cuts recorded by the label and it's partner imprint, Kudu – and over the course of the 25 tracks on the extended collection, you'll not only hear a great evolution in grooves for the 70s generation – but also a fair bit of tracks that have gone onto new lives as sample cuts too! Titles include "Mama Wailer" by Lonnie Smith, "Say You Love Me" by Patti Austin, "2001 – Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Deodato, "Jaws" by Lalo Schifrin, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad, "Supership" by George Benson, "Baltimore" by Nina Simone, "Polar AC" by Freddie Hubbard, "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" by Esther Phillips, "It's Going To Take Some Time" by Gabor Szabo, "Flute Song" by George Benson & Joe Farrell, "Forecast" by Eric Gale, "Baretta's Theme" by Ron Carter, "Breakout" by Johnny Hammond, "Wildflower" by Hank Crawford, "Knucklehead" by Grover Washington Jr, "Grand Prix" by Fuse One, "Shoogie Wanna Boogie" by Dave Matthews, "Be Yourself" by Kenny Burrell, "Sugar" by Stanley Turrentine, "Red Clay" by Freddie Hubbard, "Super Strut" by Deodato, and "Follow Your Heart" by Joe Farrell.

CTI/King (Japan), 1970s. Used ... $26.99
The soul-based side of CTI Records – some killer vocal cuts from the 70s, and a great reminder that the label didn't always just concentrate on funky jazz! Most of the tracks here are from records with singers in the lead, but a few are by jazz artists who featured a vocalist guesting on a track or two, too – which makes for a nice range of approaches in the record – some shorter, tighter soul cuts – mixed with other jazzier numbers that still pack plenty of punch in the soul department! Titles include "California Dreaming" and "Shoogie Wanna Boogie" by David Matthews, "Rich Girl" and "Baltimore" by Nina Simone, "Say You Love Me" and "Little Baby" by Patti Austin, "I Hear A Symphony" by Hank Crawford, "Unforgettable" and "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" by Esther Phillips, "House Of The Rising Sun" by Idris Muhammad, and "You Got Style" by Phil Upchurch.

CBC/Return To Analog (Canada), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

There's an upfront, righteous quality to most tunes here – a style that reminds us a lot of Nina Simone's best live work in a similarly stripped-down setting – and although all tunes are standards, Andy really takes off with them wonderfully – bringing a whole new sense of spirit and meaning that we wouldn't expect! Titles include "All The Things You Are", "Hey Love", "Ain't Necessarily So", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "On Second Thought", "Brother Can You Spare A Dime", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". CD

Nodlew, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

Juca ChavesAs Duas Faces De Juca Chaves ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
The two faces of Juca Chaves – one a witty samba singer, the other a straighter vocalist – served up here in a strong split album from the 60s! Side one features "satiras" – tunes that often have Juca's vocals cutting sharply alongside percussion, guitar, and some nice light woodwinds – with a lively sound throughout. Side two features "modinhas" – mellower, darker songs that often mix some melancholy strings with guitar, conducted by Simonetti. Titles include "Presidente Bossa Nova", "To Duro", "Nos, Os Gatos", "Nasal Sensual", "Menina", "Musa Infiel", and "O Tempo Passa". CD
