CD Reviews

Even after so many years she is still young, gifted and Blac

"Guys, gals, you have GOT to get this CD, I have always liked Nina, she has such a sultry voice, it makes you want to curl up on a bed with black silk sheets, drink champagne and eat strawberries whilst you listen to this magical artist belt out all her amazing songs.

This CD contains most of Ms Simone's best music from over the years, and you are treated to such musical wonders as "Feeling Good", the funky and toe tapping "My Baby Just Cares For Me" and the thought provoking "To Be Young Gifted and Black."

I only wish the CD included the troubled and haunting melody "Strange Fruit", in this throatily sung song Nina told the world in allegory about the lynching of Black men, and who can forget those heartfelt lyrics as she cries out to a seemingly uncaring nation, "Strange fruit hangin' from the poplar trees..."

Quite simply the best, like Nina herself.

"Just love this CD! I got hooked on Nina Simone when I saw the movie, Point of No Return. My fav tracks are Feeling Good, Don't Let me Be Misunderstood and I Want Some Sugar In My Bowl.

"Having only heard a song here or there I chose the Best Of so I could have a wide range of her music. I am blown away by her voice! My husband thought I was crazy when I bought the disc and now asks me to play her CD all the time. It's our favorite to play while reading the Sunday paper and enjoying our coffee."
