Description
Nina Simone put a spell on us, no two ways about it. This 1978 album reflects the late vocal icon's all-embracing art, with torch songs, reggae, and covers of Hall & Oates's "Rich Girl," Judy Collins's "My Father," and Randy Newman's "Baltimore" as well as the haunting "Everything Must Change" and the spiritual "Balm in Gilead."

"There was something about the heaviness in the timbre of Simone's voice and the lightness of her fingers on the piano keys that produced a sound of tremendous joy and tremendous sorrow—simultaneously.... Simone's admirers have found their way to her from a range of places, and that diversity is reflected in her music. She plays blues, jazz, protest songs, gospel, pop, hymns and folk tunes."—Salon

"Tempering deep nostalgia with flirty, low-key funk, Simone's band maintains a bell-bottom beat with Eric Gale and Jerry Friedman's wah-wah guitar effects on "The Family" and "Rich Girl," while an eighteen-piece string section creates a gushingly sentimental foundation for Simone's poignant vocals on "My Father." Every word Simone sings sounds autobiographical, though many of the tracks were written by hit-makers of the day like Randy Newman, Judy Collins, and Daryl Hall. Her voice sounds exceptionally seasoned, throbbing with wisdom, resounding with smooth luster, as if she really had been through it all."—All About Jazz.com
