Nina Simones Complete Studio Debut Recording and Definitive Album!
Contains The Complete Album Little Girl Blue (Bethlehem), including as bonus track the alternate take of 'My Baby Just Cares For Me.'

This outstanding release features Nina Simones complete New York, 1957 trio session with Jimmy Bond on bass, Albert Tootie Heath on drums and Simone accompanying herself on piano. This edition marks the first time that all fifteen of these tracks (including the extended alternate take of My Baby Just Cares For Me) are available on one CD.

Of the 82 studio sessions and live performances that make up Simone's discography, this date marks her very first recording. To say that her studio debut was a success would be a terrible understatement. At 25-years old, Simones performance boasted all the passion and ebullience of youth, and all the skill and grace of a seasoned veteran. There are many who consider this session Nina Simone finest recording.
