Nina Simone - : Honest Jon's Records
Honest Jons logo

From 1969 — pulling off fine versions of contemporary rock and pop: three Dylans, a Bee Gees, Suzanne, a Byrds…

The George Harrison, Just Like A Woman detourned, O-o-h Child, Mr Bojangles… even an uptempo, conga-driven My Way.

Her RCA debut from 1967, with Eric Gale and Bernard Purdie amongst others, slow-burning through a killer set-list. RCA CD.

Seemingly dodgy — and the sound-quality isn’t great — but this is Nina undiluted, live and direct in a small-group setting, raunchy and very moody. Including an eleven-minute Gin House, this is a riveting set.

The two 1961 Colpix LPs, Sings Ellington! and At Newport, plus her version of Mood Indigo.

Sinner Man is here. Backed by a trio of guitar, bass and drums; with six bonus tracks, including all other known recordings from the same 1961 engagement, and (with orchestra) two studio counterparts.
