Just Like a Woman: Nina Simone Sings Classic Songs [Us Import] by Rockin Rob , Sydney , Australia,
This review is from: Just Like A Woman: Sings Classic Songs [Us Import] (Audio CD)
This single cd compilation is a good intro to Nina Simone's classic late 60's/early 70's RCA period . The cd is based around covers of well known songs of the period and works well.
However, if you are buying this cd as I did to get Nina's wonderful version live version of Sandy Denny's "who knows where the time goes" as featured in the soundtrack of the movie "The Dancer Upstairs" ( starring Javier Bardem) and in the soundtrack features a lovely spoken monologue intro by nina. That same live version is on this cd , but without the monologue / intro .
If you want the full version of "who knows where the time goes"complete with monologue , then instead buy the wonderful 2cd set on BMG Camden
Emergency Ward/It Is Finished/Black Gold
This combines 3 of her classic Live lps in their entirety and is essential Nina
I hope this review is of some assistance.
