• Nina SIMONE - Fine and Mellow - Her First Recordings 1958-1960

Nina Simone was one of the most original artists of the 20th Century, a unique talent whose music transcends most of the pigeonholes that make up the predominantly genre led world of popular music.

This collection presents her first four albums between 1958 and 1960 and includes her international hit 'My Baby Just Cars For Me'. It is a remarkable body of work unlike much else that was being issued at that time.

The unique mixture of material available here still sounds fresh today. If you haven't yet been introduced to the intellectual and sophisticated sounds of Nina Simone then this is a good place to start.
