Nina Simone - Forbidden Fruit (RE, clear vinyl)

  • Sale
  • Regular price $22.00

First issued in 1961 on Columbia's early music venture Colpix, Forbidden Fruit is widely acknowledged as the best of Nina Simone's early releases. Producer Cal Lampley chose to cast her in varied settings, blending a rendition of Oscar Brown's "Rags And Old Iron" with a unique take of Bessie Smith's "Gin House Blues," contrasting with Billie Holiday's "No Good Man" and "I'll Look Around," which Simone shifts to her own image. Her backing trio aim for the understated, the rhythm section leaving ample room for Simone's appealing piano lines, nicely complimented by Al Shackman's guitar. An excellent set from Miss Simone -- grab it!
