Nina Simone recorded seven albums for Philips between 1964 and 1967, including Pastel Blues, I Put A Spell On You, and Let It All Out, each produced by Hal Mooney, and considered by many to constitute a period of Nina at her very best, emotionally raw, 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.

Originally released in 1966, Wild Is The Wind was Simone's sixth album for Philips, and the most perfectly realised record of her career. It sees her confidently tackle themes from the romantic to the political with deceptive simplicity. Heartbreak and joy, agony and ecstasy, walk hand in hand, with painfully intense emotions. Yearning, intoxication, rejection and injustice are expressed so perfectly through voice and piano with Simone's exceptional blend of power and vulnerability. 

Every home needs this record. Every heart needs this record.
