Nina Simone - I Put A Spell On You LP
Given her extensive and varied recording catalogue, if you're looking for a place to explore the talents of the late Nina Simone, then 1965's "I Put a Spell On You" is a great place to dip your toes - particular if you want to start with her more pop oriented sides.
As was the case with many mid-1960s releases, Simone's record label had a major say in the material she was allowed to record and it shows on this set which features a truly eclectic mixture including stabs at jazz (the instrumental Blues on Purpose), R&B (the title track), French chanson (Ne Me Quitte Pas) and a number of show tunes.
