Early recordings (1959-1961) of some of Nina Simone's most classic material from her years with the Colpix label. When Simone moved over to Colpix in 1959 she demanded (and got) full creative control over her music, makings these recordings the first where she was able to express herself fully as an artist. Her unique talent and personal strength as a black woman cast a long shadow over the last half of the 20th century, providing inspiration for the many artists who have followed her guiding light.
