Songs from the soundtrack of your life

Nina Simone, soul sister

Amongst my records from the attic was this much played EP from 1965 by Nina Simone. It only has three tracks, Work Song and Gin House Blues on side one and the title song Just say I love him on side two.SCAN0041

Also from the same year, what must be the best double-sided single ever, she’s singing “I put a spell on you” on the A side and “Please con’t let me be misunderstood” on the B side.SCAN0042SCAN0043

These must be two of the songs most covered  by British R ‘n’ B  and soul groups.

Nina Simone was a great artist who devoted a lot of her energy to the civil rights movement.
