B. Doro | Mt. Bethel, PA United States | 01/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nina Simone's voice is an acquired taste - and granted some people never acquire it. Yet, as much of a stickler as I usually am for things like PITCH, I didn't have any trouble enjoying this album! I found her approach to all of the material very engaging and I was genuinely moved by her renditions of the title track, THE FOLKS WHO LIVE ON THE HILL and PAPA, CAN YOU HEAR ME. The arrangements are all thoughtful and supportive, and I'd have to say that this is a very special CD for me - evocative, challenging, emotionally heart-wrenching and resigned. Nina really TAKES YOU SOMEWHERE - and isn't that what art's about?"
Moody, doomy, brilliance

"An untouchable final recording by the High Priestess of Soul. She manages to harness the fear of loneliness and the sagely wisdom of one who has experienced love and will have it again, into a beautiful almost overly produced recording. The title track, "Single Woman" rivals Billie Holiday's "The End of A Love Affair" as one of those prophetic songs that will go on haunting you forever. If you need a good cry, take this CD out, make some tea and sit back. A warning, though, this is for Nina fans. I can't imagine beginning here and coming away as happy as I have. You need to know the arc of her work, though tunes like "Marry Me", "The More I See You", "Just Say I Love Him" will go over well with everyone. If you are a fan, you MUST own this CD!!!"
