Nina Simone recorded seven albums for Philips between 1964 and 1967, including Pastel Blues, Let It All Out, and Wild Is The Wind, each produced by Hal Mooney, and considered by many to constitute a period of Nina at her very best, emotionally raw and creatively exciting. Simone defied the pigeon-holes of any comfortable genre, but on these records paid direct tribute to the jazz, blues, R&B, gospel and folk songs that gave her voice such power, and through which her talent was given not only wings, but infinite directions to fly.

On I Put A Spell On You, perhaps the most popular and crowd-pleasing album of her career, Simone's unfiltered voice is set against the enveloping lush Hal Mooney arrangements - a contrast that raises what could be a standard easy-listen into powerful raw art. Simone's talent and confidence as an entertainer and performer shine here as on no other record, but, as always, her power lies in the tenderness and vulnerability she allows to show through the cracks.
