The Colpix singles, many available in their original edits since their first released in the 1960s. A child virtuoso whose piano recitals were local events, Nina Simone started her musical career as a classically trained pianist, strongly rooted in the works of Bach, and became a singer almost by accident. The rest is history. Her recordings, over the next five decades, earned her cult status, critical acclaim and reached the top of the charts on many occasions. Between 1959 and 1964, she was signed to Colpix, who relinquished all creative control to her, including the choice of material. Her voice at her finest, she worked her way through jazz and blues standards like The Work Song and I Got It Bad (And That Ain’t Good), folk tunes like Little Liza Jane and Black Is The Color Of My True Love’s Hair, her very own Blackbird and I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl. This compilation gathers all the singles released by Colpix with their original edits, in mono. 7 of these edits available for the first time since first released.
