Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • This unique, stunning compilation brings together 11 tracks that represent Nina Simone's commitment to equality, justice, and political and social change. Bookended by two versions of "To Be Young, Gifted and Black," the set also includes full-length selections from Simone's "Martin Luther King Suite," including "Mississippi Goddam" and "Why? (The King of Love is Dead)," written after King's assassination.
  • The spirit of the late '60s is alive in Simone's covers of "Ain't Got No--I Got Life" from HAIR, and her take on Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'." But the real revolutionary fervor can be heard in the singer's delivery, which conveys deep emotion and fierce conviction at every turn. Liner notes by the likes of Tracy Chapman, Lauryn Hill, and Alicia Keys attest to Simone's influence and legacy, so that the set feels less like a standard compilation than a monument to what the artist represented.
