CD Reviews

Nina Simone for "Nice, White Folks"
BoogieJoy | U.S.A. | 08/21/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Just NOT Nina at her best. The best way to decsribe it is "over arranged". Very bland and schmaltzy, strings and all. It is as if she had an appearance booked for the the Pat Boone show and the record company wanted her to have something to promote that would go down well with that type of audience. She really never gets to dig in and do what she does best."
