Editorial Reviews

Nina Simone's live performances have a power and an intimacy all their own, and those qualities stand out in this 1987 recording from Vine Street. It's a stunning form of cabaret singing, dramatic without melodrama, and with roots that reach to Billie Holiday's surprising success with "Strange Fruit." Simone can add profundity to a usually carefree song like "My Baby Just Cares for Me," and the range of the performance broadens with the startling "Be My Husband," a simple pattern reduced to the naked force of a field holler, and the stark hymn "Balm in Gilead." Carefully chosen songs from Randy Newman, Bob Dylan, and Janis Ian achieve new dimensions in Simone's treatments. Her own deeply felt "Four Women" and "Mississippi Goddam" are potent and enduring protests. There's some effectively spare accompaniment from guitar, bass, and drums, but Simone's piano is the essential instrumental voice, from slow barrelhouse to Bach. --Stuart Broomer

I had the immense pleasure of seeing Nina Simone live in concert in Oslo, Norway in 1990. That concert is forever with me, and this glorious live recording is the closest I will ever come to that experience. Simone never ever turned out a bad record, but live she is probably more deeply moving than any other performer. There is hardly anything that can match being two, three meters away from this stunning artist at a successful concert. This record can take you there...almost.

...this is a good live CD and a great example of Nina Simone's work. She has a haunting, emotive, unusual voice that really grows on you. I actually like this CD better than some studio work she has done due to the arrangements that really highlight her vocal talent.

Nina gives us an amazing example of her live performance.
It is just impossible not to be touched by emotion listening to Dylan's Just like a woman or If You Knew/Let It Be Me.
It's just a must have record for any Nina Simone's fan.
