    I Put A Spell On You

    I Put a Spell on You is the 1965 album by Nina Simone, and features some of her best known songs. I Put a Spell on You is a song originally by Screamin' Jay Hawkins. The original version gave the song an ironic theme, but Simone transformed it into a thrilling love song, complete with horns and strings. It had become one of her most well-known songs. She used the title for her autobiography I Put A Spell On You (1992).

    Pastel Blues

    Nina Simone is hands down one of the best Blues singers of the 20th century and only artists the likes of Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith had the power to lay a soul bare like she could! This is no better exemplified than on Pastel Blues' stripped-down album opener Be My Husband, which was later covered famously by Jeff Buckley. Also featured on this beloved 1965 Philips Records release are dazzling interpretations of songs directly related to the aforementioned songstresses including Nobody Knows When You're Down And Out, originally sung by Smith and Holiday's signature song Strange Fruit, not to mention the traditional spiritual Sinnerman, which remains one of Simone's most popular recordings. At long last, Pastel Blues is back on vinyl courtesy of this Music On Vinyl 180g audiophile reissue!

    Forbidden Fruit (Pure Pleasure)

    To call Nina Simone a jazz singer is to neglect the depth and range of her artistry. A classical pianist, folk singer, protest singer, and songwriter, her arrangements are harmonically rich, varied, and rhythmically experimental, while her voice can go from lounge singer-smooth to raw and exposed in the space of a verse.


    The tracks on Sides 1 & 2 comprise 1961's masterful Forbidden Fruit album. While no session information exists to confirm this, Schackman, Hamilton and White were likely accompanying Nina when she recorded the eleven songs that comprise Sides 3 & 4, seven of which are from the small archive of previously unreleased tracks left in the Colpix vaults; and four of which were included on the Nina's final Colpix release, 1963's "Nina Simone With Strings".


    Features: 



    • 180g Vinyl

    • Double LP

    • Re-mastered by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios


    Musicians:



    • Nina Simone, piano, vocals

    • Al Schackman, guitar

    • Chris White, bass

    • Bob Hamilton, drums


     Recorded in New York City, 1961




    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Pastel Blues

    Pastel Blues features Be My Husband and was written by Andrew Stroud, Simone's husband and manager at the time. She sings it a cappella with her handclapping and a hi-hat as her only accompaniment. The song was later retitled as Be Your Husband and covered by Jeff Buckley on Live at Sin-É (2003). The album also features covers of Billie Holiday songs, Tell Me More and More and Then Some and Strange Fruit.

    Nina Simone At Carnegie Hall (Pure Pleasure)

    Pianist and singer Nina Simone defied categorization by blending classical, jazz and popular music into an unconventional and highly personal idiom: over four decades, she galvanized audiences with albums and performances replete with deep passion and keen attention to emotion.



    Fiercely honest, Simone was admired for her eccentricity and individualism. She was known for her spirited personality on and off the stage, which included flirting with audience members and voicing her opinions about social topics of the time.



    The legacy of Simone's music and message can be heard not only in jazz but amongst the many pop artists who cite her influence. Several of Simone's songs have become jazz standards, and her voice is even familiar to audiences who don't know her name through their frequent use in movie soundtracks and commercials.



    Musicians:



    • Nina Simone (piano, vocal)

    • Alvin Schackman, Phil Orlando (guitar)

    • Lisle Ackinson (b)

    • Montego Joe (dr)




    Recording: May 1963 live at Carnegie Hall, New York

    Sings The Blues

    Originally released in 1967, this is Nina Simones debut release for RCA Records. Featuring a stellar backing band that includes, amongst others, Eric Gale and Bernard Pretty Purdie, Sings The Blues is an incredible mix of blues, soul, gospel, folk, jazz and more.


    With Nina handling piano and vocal duties, the band slow burns through a killer selection of songs (including a track from Porgy & Bess and one whose lyrics are penned by the immortal Langston Hughes). Another fine 180g vinyl reissue with a deluxe tip-on jacket from 4 Men With Beards.

    Sings the Blues (Speakers Corner)

    In both her public and private life, Nina Simone was adamant about one thing, namely, what she simply would not tolerate. She sometimes complained about the miserable erotic prowess of her lovers, while at other times her audience were a target for her tongue. Sometimes she cancelled her performances at short notice and held a tirade against show business as such. In her music, rooted in gospel, she sought a path which took her down a middle course between jazz and pop, thus earning her the title of High Priestess Of Soul (as in the LP title) with her rock fans in the Sixties.



    The present blues album was recorded during what was undisputedly her most productive phase. It is a recording which does not swim with the tide of the times in that it does not employ massive forces or seek the twang of electrification. Instead Nina Simone's wonderfully sleek contralto voice bathes in the gentle timbre of an organ and a pithy, pulsating - but by no means stomping - rhythm. The cool, unemotional number "Sings The Blues" guarantees riveting tension and the authenticity of the genre which is, of course, the be all and end all of music for every black artist. Surely no compilation, no matter how carefully conceived, could possibly mark the diva's 70th birthday in February and sudden death in April 2203 better than this re-release.



    Musicians:



    • Nina Simone (piano, vocal)

    • Rudy Stevenson, Eric Gale (guitar)

    • Ernest Hayes (organ)

    • Bob Bushnell (bass)

    • Bernard Purdie (drums)

    Nina At Town Hall

    One of Nina Simone's finest recordings, this 1959 Colpix LP features the unique singer/pianist performing classic versions of 'Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair,' 'The Other Woman,' and 'Wild Is the Wind.' With supportive work from bassist Jimmy Bond and drummer Al 'Tootie' Heath, she also sounds fine on a few instrumentals. 'Summertime' is performed twice, once as a vocal. From the start of her career, Nina Simone carved out her own unique niche, meshing together her classical piano technique with folk singing, civil rights protest lyrics and jazz. All of those elements are in evidence on this highly recommended set. Original artwork.

    Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes & Pressed at RTI

    Originally released in 1967, Silk & Soul was nominated for a Grammy for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1968 for the song You'll Go To Hell. Aretha Franklin won the award over Simone.


    Besides the Grammy nominated tune, the album includes Simone's version of Bacharach's The Look of Love which was written for the 1967 movie Casino Royale.


    After moving from the blues to soul for her second RCA album, Nina Simone's extroverted, confident delivery proved a natural match with the ranks of soul shouters working the crowds during the late '60s. ... the less familiar tunes, like the highlight It Be's That Way Sometimes (written by Simone's brother Sam Waymon), Go to Hell, and I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free, a trio of songs Nina Simone has no trouble making her own. - John Bush, allmusic.com

    Wild Is The Wind

    Nina Simone's sixth album for Philips Records was Wild Is the Wind, released in 1966. The album was compiled from several recordings that were left over from sessions for previous Philips albums. The song Four Women was released as a single, and gained attention when banned by the New York jazz focused radio station WLIB due to concern over the lyrics. Wild Is The Wind was covered by David Bowie on his 1976 studio recording Station to Station.

    Sings The Blues

    Nina Simone Sings The Blues (1967) can rightfully be called a true classic in both Soul and Blues genres. The album is a showcase for the intensity of Nina's soulful croon and demanding piano skills, accompanied by a marvelous backing band with Eric Gale and Rudy Stevenson on guitar, Bob Bushnell on bass, drummer Bernard 'Pretty' Purdie, Ernie Hayes on organ and Buddy Lucas on both harmonica and sax.


    With a song selection that ranks among the best Blues tunes ever written, this record goes back to the essence of the Blues - raw and honest spine-shivering melodies.

    Emergency Ward (Speakers Corner)

    We can thank our lucky stars that Nina Simone was well aware of her musical environment and enjoyed experimenting with it, despite her notorious eccentric personality. This was the only reason that so much basic repertoire, traditional blues numbers, black work songs and favourite white show melodies - all filled with a deep soul feeling - reached her fans. Emergency Ward! is no exception. First there is the explosive medley, recorded live, of George Harrison's My Sweet Lord and David Nelson's Today Is A Killer. Accompanied by a small combo and a gospel choir, Nina Simone ignites an 18-minute blazing bonfire which loses none of its spiritual fire for even a second.



    In contrast to the gentle Poppies, extravagantly produced with strings, woodwinds and chorus, is the questioning Isn't It A Pity, arranged for piano. Here, simple, throbbing harmonies are occasionally allowed to swell into clouds of chords, giving Nina Simone the opportunity to show off her highly diversified vocal timbre which, as so often, fades away into nothing like an unanswered question. This is an exceptional album filled with a wealth of feeling and one which will leave no one untouched.



    Musicians:



    • Nina Simone (piano, vocal)

    • Sam Waymon (vocal)

    • Orchestra




    Recording: November 1971 at Fort Dix and February 1972 at RCA Victor's Studio A,
    New York City, by Ed Begley

    Production: Nina Simone, Andrew Stroud and Weldon J. Irvine Jr.





    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.
