Nina Simone's singing and piano playing remain timeless beyond fads, trends, and what the mass media deem worthy. This two-CD, 38-track collection (including two remixed cuts) is a solid representation of what Simone meant to all women who are repressed, confined, suffocated, or mistreated. With expertly expressed ballads, blues, protest, and breakup songs, much of her finest material is here, including some less familiar tunes from her repertoire, à la "Work Song." "My Baby Just Cares for Me," "Mississippi Goddam," "I Put a Spell on You," "I Loves You, Porgy," "Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair," "Little Girl Blue," and a few interpretations of poignant Billie Holiday numbers are also here, as expected. This is an excellent collection for the novice or fan, and comes easily recommended.
