Simone, Nina - Nina's Back - New LP

Regular price $ 17.00 $ 0.00

Nina manages to be in tune with 1985, with funky pop numbers like "You Must Have Another Lover," while still exploring her jazz roots  and clearly maintaining her potent signature sounds on cuts like "Fodder For Her Wings," and also offering cuts like "I SIng Just To Know I'm Alive" that are so much part of both--the world of 1985 and her own unique place in the universe, a place called Planet Nina.  It was her planet, we just got to live there. -- winch (green noise)

"Originally recorded in 1985, following a lengthy semi-retirement from the music business, NINA'S BACK is pure Nina Simone. Her vocals and piano front a small and sympathetic band on a well-chosen set of standards and several Simone originals. Of those, 'Fodder For Her Wings' and the intensely personal 'I Sing Just To Know I Am Alive' rank among Nina Simone's finest late-era compositions. The other tracks, particularly an inviting 'It's Cold Out There,' are equally fine."
