Nina Simone - A Very Rare Evening


  • £29.99

Recorded in Germany in 1969, Nina Simone’s live album A Very Rare Evening has been out-of-print since it's original release on PM Records in 1979. Featuring Weldon Irvine on organ, Don Allias on drums and Jazz legend Gene Perla on bass, the album has become one of Simone's most sought-after records. 

Produced by Gene Perla, this limited deluxe reissue on Tidal Waves Music has been officially licensed from PM Records and features the original artwork by jazz designer Anne Maria Schnider. 

“Though the Simone catalog overflows with live recordings, this 1969 German concert outranks all others. Focusing almost exclusively on then-contemporary material - the Gibb brothers’ 'In the Morning' and 'To Love Somebody,' Randy Newman’s 'I Think It’s Going to Rain Today,' Aretha Franklin’s 'Save Me,' the Byrds’ 'Turn! Turn! Turn!' - Simone is at her most assuredly earthy and intrepidly regal” - The Jazz Times
