I received this boxset in the post today. I was suprised at how greatly made it was, and how cheap it was to purchase. All nine albums comes in a small slipcase - perfectly made. It includes a booklet on the albums and a brief introduction to Nina.

A must buy for all Nina Simone enthusiasts and new fans!

There is nothing at all wrong with the way the CDs are presented here.

The problem is rather that RCA in the selection of songs in many of the CDs have tried to make Nina Simone something she isn't. Some of the material - hits at the time for others - simply don't have any depths to explore and so even Simone couldn't make much of them.

So the three stars are for the unevenness of the material and thus of the performances of them. Clearly in this case RCA put out far too many LPs in too short a time trying to cash in on her couple of popular hits of the period.

I love Nina Simone, and this box is a very nice collection of her albums. It could have been nicer packaged. Earlier this spring another nicely packaged box was released. And I had just bought this collection first, and actually don't know too much of latest issue.

This is, on the other hand, a collection of her albums, and what a better way of getting into the wonderful world of a fantastic artis!

The reason the first CD "Nina Simone Sings The Blues" is so short is that according to the booklet the CD should contain 13 tracks but has only 11.The two "Bonus" tracks are missing. I have notified Sony but they have failed to respond.

Nina Simones music is wonderful, but a 9 cd box set when the first album is 32 minutes long?!?
A good way to get her RCA albums, but tracks like Sinnerman and My Baby are conspicously absent. Mayber get a best of first for all the favourites then this set if you crave more. Not as good value as it seems at first
