WTB: Nina Simone

"It didn’t take long for Simone to hit her stride and justify Philips’s investment. Her next album, I Put A Spell On You, which came out in June 1965, was arguably the best album of her career — only Wild Is The Wind rivals it."

How many of Nina Simone's first nine albums were recorded in the studio? What song is about the death of Martin Luther King? Who did Simone have in mind when she wrote I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl? Find out the answers to these questions and more as Stevie Nix goes through Nina Simone's back catalogue album by album.
