So much hate in these comments, the Felix remix is simple and effective, peaktime dancefloor material yet also perfect for relaxing by the pool. Sure, nothing beats the original but to all you puritans, no need to bash on this excellent remix..

Still, it is the only vinyl release including the orignal song except of "Portrait Of Nina" LP

I agree with TheDarkling here, this song is perfect, and perfect because it doesn't have a 4/4 beat behind it, it's a great song from a great artist and should be kept as such.

So why a seminal label such as Verve commisioned these mixes I don't know - I would think it's something that the A suits at EMI thought would be a great idea at the time and get them 'down with the kids' by exploiting their considerable catalogue of classics.

Saying that, there is a 10 minute remix of 'C Line Woman' by MAW which is superb because they haven't added a thudding beat behind the song and have pretty much only elongated it into epic piece of heartfelt sorrow.

BTW - if you're after a more sinister version of Sinnerman check out the version by Nina & Frederik, it's only about 2 minutes long and conjures up images of Black Frost from the Mighty Boosh to me, but that's another matter.

There is never anything wrong with editing tracks or remaking them better. However, when the song is PERFECT, there is no need for it to be redone. This lacks anything new.This also opens up another can of worms remixes that use the orginal song but just add a 4x4 beat with some pads or beefed up bassline. Felix fails. All i can hope for is that this brings it to a younger audience who will appreciate Nina Simone.

Felix sampled this one really well, It's a happy, uplifting tune which almost always get the crowd up their feet. Using the first guitar loop from the original "Sinnerman" is done brilliantly in my opinion.

Felix return to house for this remix and the result is shocking, and sadly it's shockingly plain & bad. The very simple beat and production makes you wonder if Felix put his heart into this project. The remix is only saved by Nina's amazing vocals.
