Slate of Nina Simone releases planned to mark 90th anniversary of jazz legend’s birth
For the superfan, a “mastercut” edition of Simone’s iconic 1965 album I Put a Spell on You is now available in a limited run.
The celebration continues with the June release of You’ve Got to Learn, a previously unreleased six-track live album recorded at the 1966 Newport Jazz Festival.
In August, the audiophile vinyl reissue series Acoustic Sounds will celebrate Simone’s 90th with an audiophile-grade pressing of her 1966 studio album Wild is the Wind.
In October, all seven of Simone’s 1960s Philips albums will be brought together in one LP collection. Four Women: The Nina Simone Complete Recordings 1964-1967 includes the seven albums Simone recorded for the Philips label between 1964 and 1967 in one of the most significant periods of her career.
