7 Classic LPs/albums spread over 4 Cds at this price make this a tempting buy but Amazon have not given us the track listing so this may be of use.

Kind of Blue ha proveded me with the correct track listing for CD 4.
Also why not try out this link for anotgher 5 and 3 albums?

I know the set looks (and probably is) cheap and cheerful but she was someone who made a lot of recordings in various styles and was great live (a large focus of the set) so I can...

I have been listening to NIna SImone since I was sixteen, I am now sixty. I always find her sublime and the supreme musicians musician. She understands soul and she understands simplicity and above all she is human, without the fuss, without the pretence, she just speaks to you.... within...

Timeless, up there with Billie Holiday...

Very good value for money. All discs remastered to a very high standard. Sounded like that they'd only been recorded instead of 40 odd years ago. Shows how good the recording engineers and the processes they used were.

This set of classic albums has been well re-mastered. I need not repeat the longer musical reviews given by others which I endorse. Simone had an enormous musical talent and a simply amazing voice give by God. In the UK, we heard little at the time these were released and unfortunately, had to put up with very inferior cover versions of some of the songs. This made money for the musicians that exploited the material and left the British audience in the dark. Simone's musicality and the powerful passionate feeling for every song she performed cannot be doubted. There are some instants where you get the impression that she was less comfortable with working with a larger orchestra where it seems likely that a conductor complete with baton tried to hold the reins. However, with a small ensemble and her angular pianism that reflects an understanding of baroque and classical musical styles coupled with amazing extemporisation skills, there are many performances on this set that will awaken your emotions and send shivers down the spine, get the hairs on your neck standing up and indeed, several should bring forth tears. I would welcome a sequel set.

The music is good but the lack of sleeve notes prevents it getting 5 stars. The same applies to all of the box sets in this range.

No-one to compare, end of. Cos she was rooted in the blues she could take it anywhere...jazz, R&B, pop...and its all better than anyone else.
