The first disc of this two-CD set is a 1964 live recording of Simone at her most righteous. Having just left Colpix Records, where she was catering for a predominantly white supper club audience, she unleashed a well of pent-up fury against racism. This is evident on the holy rollin' "Old Jim Crow", and a raucous version of Brecht's "Pirate Jenny", relocated to a dockside hotel in the American South. The second CD, meanwhile, is her more measured 1965 album I a Spell on You--worth buying for the title track alone. This is one of her best songs, a heart-stopping version of the Screamin' Jay Hawkins original that combines vulnerability with bluesy menace. "I don't care if you don't want me/I'm yours right now", she moans. Chillingly perfect. --Lucy O'Brien

Her rich, one of a kind voice and soul-full piano has a beauty and resonance that is unsurpassed to this day. These songs come to life under her voice and are still relevant today.
Pick the album up, you will not be disappointed.
