"One of Nina Simone's finest recordings, this LP features the unique singer/pianist with supportive work from bassist Jimmy Bond and drummer Albert "Toothie" Heath. From the start of her career, Nina Simone carved out her own unique niche, meshing together her classical piano technique with folk singing, civil rights protest lyrics and jazz. All of those elements are in evidence on this highly recommended set."
