(2-LP set) Nina Simone was an American singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger, and civil rights activist widely associated with jazz music. Simone aspired to become a classical pianist while working in a broad range of styles including classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop. Originally released in 1967, Silk & Soul was nominated for a Grammy for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1968 for the song "You'll Go To Hell". This album contains the classics "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free", which would become a Civil Rights anthem and "It Be's That Way Sometimes", written by her brother Sam Waymon. Besides the Grammy nominated tune, the album includes Simone's version of Bacharach's "The Look of Love" which was written for the 1967 movie Casino Royale. Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog master tapes and pressed at RTI. Numbered deluxe laminated gatefold jackets. Only 2,500 numbered limited edition copies worldwide.
