Album artwork for The Very Best Of Nina Simone by Nina Simone

Nina Simone's style encompassed a broad range of musical genres including jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, pop and classical music Although she was initially trained to be a classical pianist, racism forced her to work within the realm of popular music, where she developed a singular style both as a singer and as a piano player. This 180-gram vinyl edition compiles 16 of her best performances ever, all of which were hits. Among them are her perennial reading of George & Ira Gershwin's "I Loves You Porgy" and her immortal version of "My Baby Just Cares for Me".

Nina Simone, vocals & piano on all tracks, plus: Al Schackman, Chris White, Jimmy Bond, Wilbur Ware; Bobby Hamilton, Ben Riley, Albert "Tootie" Heath, among others. Recorded in New York, 1957 - 61.

Tracks: My Baby Just Cares For Me / I Loves You Porgy / Love Me Or Leave Me / Little Girl Blue / He Needs Me / Children Go Where I Send You / Willow Weep For Me / Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out / Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair / Trouble In Mind / Exactly Like You / Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me / Work Song / Fine And Mellow / Mood Indigo / The Other Woman
