Nina Simone In Concert: Emergency Ward! (1972)

RCA Victor
  • 1. My Sweet Lord
  • 2. Today Is A Killer
  • 3. Poppies
  • 4. Isn't It A Pity

This unusual record from 1972 is Nina Simone's statement on the Vietnam War. The cover is a collage of news clippings from the conflict, and the song selection and arrangement, though dealing with matters more spiritual than political, reflect the events of the day. The entire first side consists of a powerhouse medley of George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord" and a poem by David Nelson called "Today Is a Killer," set to music by Simone. 

Produced by Weldon Irvine.
