Nina Simone - Strange Fruit (Rare Studio & Live Recordings)
Simone, Nina - Strange Fruit (Rare Studio & Live Recordings)LP - New - This LP release compiles a collection of rare tracks from the early stages of Nina Simone?s career. It is presented here for the first time ever on a single set. Among the treasures are her seldom heard earliest recordings, four tracks recorded live, unbeknownst to the artist, at a club date in Atlantic City in 1956 (and first released, illegally, in 1964). Four seldom heard singles waxed for Colpix follow, recorded with an orchestra between 1959-61. Various live recordings from the same period complete the album, with Nina on piano and vocals, unaccompanied.
