No Depression - p.113
"WILD IS THE WIND is simply transfixing, in part for a sequencing that alternates between orchestral flashed and the subtle groove of her regular combo..."

Product Description:

Personnel: Nina Simone (vocals, piano); Rudy Stevenson (guitar, flute); Lisle Atkinson (upright bass); Bobby Hamilton (drums); Horace Ott & His Orchestra.
This album was apparently a bit of a pastiche of leftovers from sessions for Nina Simone's four previous albums on Philips. But you'd never guess from listening; the material is certainly as strong and consistent as it is on her other mid-'60s LPs. As is the case with most of her albums of the time, the selections are almost unnervingly diverse, ranging from jazz ballads to traditional folk tunes ("Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair") to the near calypso of "Why Keep on Breaking My Heart" to the somber, almost chilling title track. Highlights are two outstanding pop-soul numbers written by the pre-disco Van McCoy ("Either Way I Lose," "Break Down and Let It All Out") and "Four Women," a string of searing vignettes about the hardships of four African-American women that ranks as one of Simone's finest compositions. ~ Richie Unterberger
