      Recorded in 1964 and 1965 during Nina Simone's classic New York days, Nina takes on the blues and wins. Opening with 'Be My Husband' recently revived by Anthony and the Johnsons, showing Nina wrestling with all the complexities that can appear even in the most mundane human relationships. Followed by a rousing version of Bessie Smith's 'Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out'. Another highlight must be 'Strange Fruit' , the well known standard about Klu Klux Klan lynching, and made famous by Billie Holiday, and covered magnificently.
