Recorded in 1967 at RCA Victor's Studio B in New York City.

Nina Simone is singing at her passionate best on this 1967 release. This is a tremendous artist accurately reproducing native blues in a most compelling fashion. There are no mannerisms, affectation never enters the picture. There is no hiding behind big bands, studied arrangements or audio effects. Miss Simone simply sings, with heart at all times, with guts on certain tunes and with abandon on everything.

This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head, and was pressed with virgin vinyl at Pallas. More information under
