Nina Simone - Little Girl Blue (2xLP - 200 Gram Vinyl)
Nina Simone was a one-of-a-kind vocalist and this new 45 RPM Analogue Productions reissue of her famed album Little Girl Blue is as exacting and soul-stirring as the performance she delivers.
Like all our 45 RPM reissues, this Analogue Productions LP delivers a reduction in groove curvature that greatly reduces inner groove distortion as your stereo cartridge nears the center. And improved high frequency reproduction. Better tracking equals better sound.
There’s also no denying that this is a superb recording. Nina Simone was born February 21, 1933, in Tryon, North Carolina. She was one of eight children — all of whom sang or played an instrument. At 4 she started to play piano; by 4 1/2 she was singing and soon was part of a church trio with her sisters. By the time she reached high school she was playing jazz piano heavily tinged with the folk blues of the south. When she graduated at 17 she left home for Philadelphia. Later followed two years of serious piano study at New York’s Julliard School of Music. She made her first vocal appearance singing from the keyboard at the Mid-Town Club in Atlantic City. By this time she had heard and enjoyed and been influenced by such stylists as Louis Armstrong, Kitty White, Sarah Vaughan, Louis Jordan and Billie Holiday.
Her gospel music background, classical music training and jazz influences shaped her vocal delivery and instrumental prowess.
For Little Girl Blue, Nina and her rhythm section recorded the entire album plus three additional tracks in just one session. In her biography of Nina, Nadine Cohodas recounts engineer Irv Greeenbaum’s recollection of that day: “Nothing like Nina’s artistry had ever happened before ... Her voice and the keyboard playing were so rich and interesting that they could have stood alone.”
