Nina Simone Folksy Nina 180g Import Vinyl LP 

Remastered by Ray Staff at Air Mastering, Lyndhurst Hall, London

"Like the 1963 LP Nina Simone At Carnegie Hall, this was recorded in front of a devoted and enthusiastic live audience at Carnegie Hall on May 12, 1963. It isn't just unworthy leftovers, but a strong set in its own right, concentrating on material that could be seen as traditional or folk in orientation. It's not exactly strictly folk music, in repertoire or arrangement (which includes piano, guitar, bass, and drums, though not every tune has all of the instruments); "Twelfth Of Never" certainly isn't folk music.

However, there was also an uptempo piano blues, Leadbelly's "Silver City Bound"; covers of the Israeli "Erets Zavat Chalav" and "Vanetihu" which served as further proof that Simone's eclecticism knew no bounds; and the stark, moody, spiritually shaded ballads at which she excelled ("When I Was a Young Girl," "Hush Little Baby"). "Lass Of The Low Country" is as exquisitely sad-yet-beautiful as it gets." Pure Pleasure / Richie Unterberger, All Music
