Discumentary: Nina Simone "Nina Simone in Concert"


Of the many live albums Nina Simone released, this one stands out as her greatest. Recorded over three nights at Carnegie Hall in 1964, it was the first time she put her feelings on the struggle for civil rights in her music.  These feelings are conveyed on tracks like "Mississippi Goddamn, "Old Jim Crow" and "Go Limp", but the album also feature's Simone's take on George Gershwin's "I Loves You, Porgy" from "Porgy & Bess" and Willard Robinson's "Don't Smoke In Bed".
