Product description

SIMONE NINA

Amazon.co.uk

Nina Simone has probably got one of the most recognisable voices in music. One, which can pick up a song and mould it into the meaning she wants it to have. This was especially true in the late 1960s when, influenced by Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement, her interpretation of numbers such as the title track, "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and "Ne Me Quitte Pas", reflected the black American's experience. As did the self-penned "Mississippi Goddam" and her cover of "Strange Fruit", with which she is the only one who can compare with Billie Holiday's. Elsewhere in this collection, she is more playful but just as stunning with George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun", the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody" and "Ain't Got No (I Got Life)". Not to mention, the classic Simone numbers "My Baby Just Cares" and "Love Me Or Leave Me". The latter pair proving that in addition to having a superb voice she is also an emotive pianist. --Phil Brett

I wont claim to be the biggest nina simone fan in the world, but this particular album has to be without a doubt fantastic. I have checked out probably a dozen or so cds (a couple compilation) and this has to be the best. I have been listening to this cd with some regularity for the past 6 years or so now and it still never fails to supply. Sunday mornings, rainy afternoons, drunken return home with the mates, a few songs even thrown on at a party or two. ("love me or leave me" will always be remembered for getting twelve people on the coffee table)
From the shreiking of mississippi god-damn to the beauty of ne me quitte pas... you`ll be spending your money wisely on this gem. yeahwarren@hotmail.com

Having watched "The Assassin" movie starring Bridgit Fonda, which heavily features Nina Simone music, I went out and bought this CD. The first track "Feeling Good" makes the purchase price worthwhile by itself. It's a truely remarkable, spine-tingling song that should be your wake-up tune every morning, and will make you feel good about the day.
Along with the classic tracks "I put a spell on You" and "Don't let me be misunderstood", is one I didn't recognise by name, "Sinner Man", but found I knew very well and liked from hearing on TV.
So why only 4 stars. "My baby just cares for me" is probably the best known song Nina has recorded, and a favourite for many people. But the version included here has a sparse arrangement and sounds like a sleepy jazz trio, rather than the upbeat full sound of the version most people will recognise. This is a great CD, but if you buy it, you are going to have to buy another too to get the best version of this song

I love Nina Simone. I bought this CD to replace a much loved, well-played cassette of the same name that I had years ago. Sadly this wasn't the same despite having the same cover and name. Nostalgia aside, it's a wonderful collection and I can't say I'm hugely disappointed that it wasn't exactly the same as my old cassette.

I see some people complaining that 'My Baby Just Cares For Me' isn't the same recording as the one they are used to. They are right, the one on this cd is a live version. Live versions are quite different to studio recorded ones. I didn't buy this cd for that particular track (it's never been a favourite of mine anyway) but I can understand some people being disappointed that this wasn't the version they were expecting. I also think it's wrong to include a lesser known version of a well known song on a "Best of" album. I knocked one star of for this reason - a criticism of the producers of this cd rather than the song itself.

I personally love all the wonderful imperfections you get when Nina sings live. Although I can't say I particularly enjoyed this version of My Baby Just Cares For Me. (Anyone heard her sing "For a While"? Completely heartbreaking. Completely beautiful. Live and imperfect. Much better than the studio version).

Very much agree with the previous reviewer. The version of "My Baby Just Cares For Me" on this CD is not the well-known, uplifting, bouncy version we all know and love, but an inferior version. Disappointing.

I'll have to agree with a few previouse reviewer's here that this has to be the better compilation cd of Nina that I have come across out there, with a the few tracks on it that I was hoping would be on it and they are. A definate for a fan let alone a newbie to Nina. One thing though, is that as always be carefull of the condition you purchase the cd in. Great compilation.

I first heard this album when I was about 18 and it blew me away until then I though this was just the music in my dad's record collection but how wrong was I . This really is the best music can offer you filling you with a range of heart shattering emotions that only Nina can express. If you are a Nina Simone fan then buy this album its well worth every penny in fact I still listen to it at least once a day.

NINA SIMONE'S COLLECTION OF SONGS WAS VERY VARIED, I THOUGHT. A FEW FAVOURITES LIKE:- FEELING GOOD , PUT A SPELL ON YOU, I WANTED TO PLAY THEM OVER AGAIN. SHE ALSO HAD A VOICE THAT REALLY APPEALED TO ME, DEEP AND FULL OF SOUL AND BLUES SONGS. I GOT TO BE FOND OF THEM ALL.
