Nina Simone The Nina Simone Story 3CD Boxset
The most comprehensive 3 CD collection available from this extraordinary performer. Chronicles the heyday of her career from 1958 to 1985, including all her classic recordings for Bethlehem Records.
 
Nina Simone, who died in 2003 was one of the 20th century's most significant popular singers, as well as being a leading figure in the civil rights movement of the late Sixties.
 
In a recent critics' poll in 'Mojo' magazine she was voted amongst the top five vocalists of all time.
 
Her music has always defied categorisation. During her long recording career she encompassed just about every popular music style, from soul to jazz, from folk to R&B and from gospel to Broadway hits.
 
The set includes a lavish illustrated booklet containing a detailed biography of her turbulent life.
