Her greatest release since Bitter!
on 8 October 2012
I received this album in the post today, and have highly anticipated its release. Nina Simone is my favourite artist of all time, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I found out Meshell would be releasing an album as a tribute to the great lady. I didn't doubt for one minute that Meshell would do Nina justice and stay true to Nina's unique style and talent. This album is fantastic, my favourite release this year thus far - already! The song's Meshell has chosen to re-interpret are a mix of Nina-penned tracks and songs made famous by/covered by Nina. Most of the album is incredibly smooth, such as her take on Feeling Good and Turn Me On. The opening track Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" is perhaps the most recognizable track on the album with Feeling Good also. Her take on this track is magnificent, unlike any other covers of the song I have ever heard. I would highly recomhend purchasing this album!
