Product Description:

Arranger: Sammy Lowe.
This bestselling Starbucks compilation could also bear the subtitle: The Unknown Nina Simone. While it includes her definitive version of Billy Taylor's civil rights anthem, "I Wish I Knew It Feels To Be Free," as well as her pop R&B cover of the Lenny Welch hit "Since I Fell For You," it also contains some less often heard gems from her prodigious, eclectic output, stressing the folk and blues elements. Besides her great interpretations of Dylan's "Just Like Tom Thimb's Blues" and "I Shall Be Released," the collection opens with Bessie Smith's risqu‚ "I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl" and closes with the gospel-based epic "Sinnerman," which clocks in at over 10 minutes in this version. Along the way, Simone still doesn't neglect her classy supper club roots, treating us to a subtle treatment of Duke Ellington's "I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)" in addition to the 50's Broadway novelty, "Lilac Wine," which was also a hit for Eartha Kitt. Like no one before or since, Nina Simone could do it all.
