Editorial Reviews

2010 three CD collection from the Jazz legend housed in a tin box. Nina Simone was one of the most celebrated and thought provoking artists of the 20th century. This fantastic set features 45 of her best loved studio and live concert recordings, including many that deservedly found an international audience, and a selection of self-penned songs through which she expressed her feelings about the prevailing social issues in 1950s/'60s America. Metro.

I wanted to love this 3cd set soooo much! I tried, but I can't. I was looking for a Nina Simone comp as I'm just getting to know her music. There are many out there, I chose this as it has 45 songs and it looks great! I assume since this is a relatively new release (2010 or 2011 I think) that the tracks would be remastered. They are not, the sound is poor across all 3cds. Cd 3 is made up of entirely live tracks, I'm not a big fan of live tracks on cds to begin with. Add to the fact these songs are old and it's not remastered, you can get an idea how disappointing the songs are. The product picture here shows that it comes with a 24page booklet, well it doesn't. The actual product I got just shows "45 essential songs on 3cds" on it. Missing from the product's tracklist are Sinnerman, Feeling Good and Black is The Color of My True Love's Hair, 3 songs that i think are essential, but I didn't mind as I have those. My advice, make sure you get a remastered cd of studio tracks, the "Gold" comp looks good and yes, remastered, I might get that.
