Nina Simone – Pastel Blues (LP)

Format LP
Availability In stock

Nina Simone is hands down one of the best Blues singers of the 20th century and only artists the likes of Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith had the power to lay a soul bare like she could! This is no better exemplified than on Pastel Blues’ stripped-down album opener “Be My Husband,” which was later covered famously by Jeff Buckley. Also featured on this beloved 1965 Philips Records release are dazzling interpretations of songs directly related to the aforementioned songstresses including “Nobody Knows When You’re Down And Out,” originally sung by Smith and Holiday’s signature song “Strange Fruit,” not to mention the traditional spiritual “Sinnerman,” which remains one of Simone’s most popular recordings.
