So nice. What a voice that woman had. Picking myself up off the floor. I listen to "Pirate Jenny" now and then when I feel strong enough for it...

One of the greats--thank you!

Nina Simone's music touches down from another planet. Love it!

Michael Buble recentishly had a minor hit imitating this recording as close to note for note as he could get. Rather as with the remakes of PSYCHO and THE HAUNTING, fell rather short of the mark.

Simone took a not-bad Anthony Newley song and made it into something to be reckoned with.
