Today is the last day of the Nina Simone tribute week, I hope that it has been as fun for as it has been for me digging through all these songs. We'll continue with our usual pre-war blues posts next Monday. These last two tracks are my last two "favorite picks" I know I didn't post Miss. Goddamn or Strange Fruit, but go out and pick up the 4 Woman box set (for very cheap on YourMusic.com) which includes all of her Phillips output, which in my opinion is her best work.


This first track is off her album Nina Simone and Piano, which, I think is her best post-Phillips recording, and features Nina accompanying herself on piano. It's pretty fantastic, and features some of Nina most assured vocal recordings.

Sinnerman, might be Nina's most famous song - and rightfully so. There isn't much to write about this song, as I don't want to give it away - but download this if you haven't heard it, it's really just amazing even after years of listening, much like Nina herself.
