Nina Simone

My stepson tagged this amazing version of House of the Rising Sun

And there was this other incredible version of Mississippi Goddam, live, from the 1960s.

And live from Montreux, 1976, sweet piano and powerful song: I Wish I Knew (How It Feels to Be Free)

Feelings–she stops at point to ask, what kind of world would drive a person to write a song like this? Not to mention Do What You’ve Gotta Do, although it breaks off at the end. Great song.
