Information

Nina Simone said that she'd rather have people remember her for her album Nina Simone And Piano! than for her surprise hit 'My Baby Just Cares For Me'.
And when you listen to the album, you fully understand why.
This is Nina Simone stripped bare; an introspective, intimate album about death, reincarnation, loneliness and love.
The simple piano arrangements and poignant vocals make you creep closer to the music - and the artist - with every listen.
Though commercially unsuccessful, this album was released to great critical acclaim in 1969, and it is a true gem in Nina Simone's body of work.
It has remained a rarity over the years and now Music On Vinyl would like to give it due attention by making it the first of a few Simone releases waiting in the wings.
Released on 180 grams audiophile vinyl with original artwork!

  • Michael Rose - African QueenMichael RoseAfrican Queen

    Michael Rose's distinctive tone gets on a re-working of Yabby's a King Pharoah's Plague rhythm. Nicely done by King Jammy and comes with a nice dub on the flipside. Excellent.

  • The Inturns  - Nothing is Impossible (extended mix)The Inturns Nothing is Impossible (extended mix)

    An excellent extended mix by Phil Pratt of The Inturns 'Nothing is Impossible'. First released on a Chanan Jah 12' in the mid nineteen seventies. The Inturns recorded an album and several singles for Phil Pratt before returning to the their original name The Viceroys. Extended mix of 'Detour' on the flipside. Comes in a hand stamped bag. Crisp.

  • Junior Brown - What a disasterJunior BrownWhat a disaster

    Three cuts of Junior Brown/ Phil Pratts 'What a disaster'. The rhythm was recorded in Jamaica by Sly and Robbie and was part of the Dial M for Murder lp. The Junior Brown vocal was voiced in the UK and released on The Mystic label. We have an extra mix added to the Pressure Sounds release by The Disciple. A killer release that comes in a hand stamped bag made out of re-cycled card.

  • L. Crosdale  - Reggae MusicL. Crosdale Reggae Music

    Really uplifting vocal from Lloyd Crosdale. Bit of a pearl this one. Nice tune on the Studio One imprint 'London Records'. Backed by Drumbago and the Rebel Brothers on the flipside. Nice spacey dub. Original JA pressing so check the soundclips.

  • Don Drummond  - ReloadDon Drummond Reload

    Genius from the master Don Drummond. Ably backed by Lennie Hibbert on vibes on 'Reload' on the A side. On the flipside the more frantic 'Little Willie' by Clue J & his Blues Busters. A pretty good pressing but check the sound clips before you buy.
