This popular Nina Simone compilation brings together tracks recorded between 1964 and 1966. At this time, Simone was signed to the Philips label, having released nine prior albums on Colpix and two on Bethlehem. The songs collected here capture Simone in her prime, creating some of the best work of her legendary career. As always, her style ranges all over the musical map, encompassing jazz, folk, protest songs, gospel, and R&B into a unique and compelling artistic vision.
Included on this wonderful sampler are such timeless classics as the socially conscious "Four Women," a Simone original that bitterly charts the fate of a quartet of very different women united by their color. THE BEST OF NINA SIMONE also features the hauntingly beautiful "Wild is the Wind," her epic, gospel-flavored landmark recording of "Sinnerman," and many other tracks you will want to hear again and again. BEST contains some of the best from one of music's best.
