Now something for people trying to get some Sunday afternoon work done and need something soothing that’s not at ALL distracting.
Forty minutes of Nina Simone Live in Holland 25 December 1965
(What a christmas! stuff JC!)
UPDATE: The Ballad of Hollis Brown at 10.50 is completely off the chain.
You spent your last lone dollar on seven shotgun shells.

“Did you know that the human voice is the only pure instrument? That it has notes no other instrument has? It’s like being between the keys of a piano. The notes are there, you can sing them, but they can’t be found on any instrument. That’s like me. I live in between this. I live in both worlds, the black and white world. I am Nina Simone, the star, and I am not here. I’m a woman. My secret self is between these worlds.”
