Nina Simone Sings The Blues on 180g LP
Originally released in 1967, this is Nina Simone’s debut release for RCA Records. Featuring a stellar backing band that includes, amongst others, Eric Gale and Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, Sings The Blues is an incredible mix of blues, soul, gospel, folk, jazz and more.
With Nina handling piano and vocal duties, the band slow burns through a killer selection of songs (including a track from Porgy & Bess and one whose lyrics are penned by the immortal Langston Hughes). Another fine 180g vinyl reissue with a deluxe tip-on jacket from 4 Men With Beards.
