Nina Simone was born Eunice Wayman on February 21st 1933, in Tryon, South Carolina. She is, for many, the ultimate jazz/blues diva.

I have lived with the original cd since its 1993 release. It was always a worthy addition to her repertoire, the lush settings remind me of Billie Holliday's Lady in Satin. I love the interpretations of the 3 Rod McKuen songs very mature and insightful. In addition, there are fine reworkings of 2 Simone classics "If I should lose you" and "Just say I love him". I enjoyed the re-working of "Papa can you hear me" from the Yentl film soundtrack; Nina personalised the song to give an insight into her relationship with her own father. Finally, I love the humour of her composition "Marry me" - a great ending to the original recording.
We then come to the 7 cuts tracks that did not make the original CD. 2 tracks "Basball boogie" and "The times they are a changin" are fragments at just under 1 minute each. OK but nothing special. That leaves the remaining 5 cuts - they are fine though her voice can be a little wayward at times. "Long and winding road" and "I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter" would have fitted well on the original CD and match the mood of the original CD. The remaining cuts would not have been congruous with the original CD but are worthy cuts nevertheless. "No woman, no cry" is taken in reggae style with powerful backing vocals and Nina sings with real passion. "Do I move you" is a reworking of the song from Nina Sings the Blues LP, it offers no new insights but must have been fun to perform in the studio. "The times they are a changin'" is followed by Prince's "Sign o' the times" - an observation of life in America in the 1960's and then 1990's. For me it is by far the most powerful cut - it stands as the final great interpretation by this diva. Prince must be very proud of this re-interpretation, its full on Nina and full of her trademark passion.

Format: Audio CD
The last Nina studio album from 1993 but re-issued with unreleased seven tracks, making seventeen tracks in total , playing time just under an hour.
Nina was hitting sixty, a new wave of interest in her work had been underway for a few years, and her autobiography had just been published. But she seemed to be lost. All the old defiance had gone. As the title track suggest- the opening number no less- this release is dedicated to the plight of `A Single Woman`: Thought her voice still sounds great and the string arrangements work well but on this release, Dr. Nina Simone sounded mellow and looking inwards. There are no duff tracks, but the melancholy gets too much at times, and there's not even any of the extraordinary piano playing that one appreciates from her.
Dedicating `The Folks Who Live on the Hill' to a former lover, Earl Barrow the Prime Minister of Barbados , who let Nina become his mistress for fourteen months in the mid 1970's, seems one great 'what might of been'.
`Loves been good to me' is bitter-sweet, Nina presenting her life as a procession of disappointments just about redeemed by love affairs which don't last. The tracks seems nostalgic, many could fit into movie soundtracks of previous decades. `Papa can you Hear Me' is almost too painful to listen to, a lonely woman reminiscing about her deceased father. Il N'y a Pas D'amour Heureux , which Nina sings beautifully , is the standard Gallic evocation of doomed love.
At last
'The More I See You' and 'Marry Me' right at the end are more upbeat.. The ten original tracks are rarely found on compilations so worth seeking out.

But the bonus tracks at least give a different view.

Nina Simone produced many better albums than this - her last studio album - but for the fan it still has plenty of tracks which show off the old Nina magic. An overly lush MOR production detracts at times but songs such as The Folks Who Live on the Hill, Just Say I Love Him and If I Should Lose You are given the full benefit of Nina's deepening but ever soulful voice.

The bonus tracks are a fascinating mix of oddities and obscurities, some of which should probably have never seen the light of day - but at the same time, you're half pleased they did. A cover of No Woman, No Cry is not great. And Nina's version of Prince's Sign O the Times is truly one of the most curious and ill-advised covers I've ever come across - you can't quite believe what you're hearing. But full respect to her for having a go. And despite this, I believe she remains the greatest interpreter of other people's songs of all time.
