2-CD SET

INCLUDES 12 TRACKS APPEARING FOR THE FIRST TIME ON CD

This release compiles a collection of rare tracks from the early stages of Nina Simone’s career, presented here for the fi rst time on a single set. Among the treasures are her seldom heard earliest recordings, made in Philadelphia in 1955, and in Atlantic City in 1956 –the latter ones fi rst issued on the long out of print LP "Starring Nina Simone" (Spin-O-Rama – M 130).

Also included on this set are four rare singles waxed for Colpix, and various live and broadcast recordings from the same period, among them twelve tracks appearing here on CD for the first time ever.
