Nina Simone’s musical career began as a child. Classically trained and deep-rooted in the works of Bach, her piano performances were local attractions. It can be said that her career as a singer almost started by accident.
With the recently released names of the 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, it comes to no surprise that Miss Simone’s name features along with celebrated performers, The Cars, Bon Jovi, The Moody Blues and Dire Straits. The musical legend arguably achieved legendary status after signing to the Colpix label.
The Colpix Singles (Mono) [Remastered] album, released in February this year, features 27 songs tracing this remarkable artist’s musical journey. The title pretty much sums up the content and is available in stores and on iTunes and deserves all the praise coming its way.
