During her late-1960s and early-'70s tenure at RCA Records, Nina Simone sang a number of then-current pop covers in her inimitable piano-and-voice style. This 14-track anthology gathers many of the best, including versions of the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody" and "In the Morning" and Randy Newman's "I Think It's Going To Rain Today" that rank among the finest takes on those oft-covered tunes. Others include Simone's version of familiar folk songs popularized by pop acts, including "House of the Rising Sun" and "Turn! Turn! Turn!"
