Long Out of Print Live European Recordings from 1969!
Tidal Waves Music proudly presents the re-issue of Nina Simone's A Very Rare Evening. Originally released on PM records in 1979, featuring Weldon Irvine on organ, Don Allias on drums and jazz legend Gene Perla on bass. Included on these European sessions from 1969 you'll find Nina classics and rare versions of recordings written by Aretha Franklin, Barry Gibb, Randy Newman and Pete Seeger.
One of the most sought after Nina Simone albums is now back on deluxe vinyl for the first time since 1979. Produced by Gene Perla, officially licensed from PM Records and featuring the original artwork created by A.M. Schnider.
"Though the Simone catalog overflows with live recordings, this 1969 German concert outranks all others. Focusing almost exclusively on then-contemporary material – the Gibb brothers' "In the Morning" and "To Love Somebody," Randy Newman's "I Think It's Going to Rain Today," Aretha Franklin's "Save Me," the Byrds' "Turn! Turn! Turn!" – Simone is at her most assuredly earthy and intrepidly regal." - The Jazz Times
