Brilliant reissue. Stunning sound quality (apart from the piano - typical of the recording techniques of the day) and a fantastic pressing (as per usual from QRP - all of mine are first rate). If you don't know where to start with Nina Simone, start here! All of her performances here are wonderful and extremely accessible.

Excellent Reissue of this masterpiece, recorded in stereo RVG style ie: vocal is hard panned to the left which I don't mind. Quality very quiet pressing sound quality is amazing. 5 stars +
