Nina Simone has probably got one of the most recognisable voices in music. One, which can pick up a song and mould it into the meaning she wants it to have. This was especially true in the late 1960s when, influenced by Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement, her interpretation of numbers such as the title track, "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and "Ne Me Quitte Pas", reflected the black American's experience. As did the self-penned "Mississippi Goddam" and her cover of "Strange Fruit", with which she is the only one who can compare with Billie Holiday's. Elsewhere in this collection, she is more playful but just as stunning with George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun", the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody" and "Ain't Got No (I Got Life)". Not to mention, the classic Simone numbers "My Baby Just Cares" and "Love Me Or Leave Me". The latter pair proving that in addition to having a superb voice she is also an emotive pianist. --Phil Brett
