The two albums collected on this single-disc set were originally released in 1972 and 1973 on the tiny Stroud label, run by Simone and her husband Andy Stroud, and have never before been available on CD. NINA SIMONE SINGS BILLIE HOLIDAY features the singer and pianist in a torchy mood in front of a small combo. The more expansive THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO NINA SIMONE features a gospel choir on "To Be Young Gifted and Black," and an unexpected funk workout on an extended "Sinnerman."
