Overview

During her stint with RCA in the late '60s and early '70s, Nina Simone pursued a more consciously pop-soul direction than previously. The Essential Nina Simone, Vol. 2 collects 16 tracks from 1967-1971, many of them pop or rock covers, among them "Here Comes the Sun," "Just Like a Woman," "Angel of the Morning," "Everyone's Gone to the Moon," and "Cherish." Simone is most effective when singing with nothing except a piano, as she does on "The Human Touch," "Another Spring," and "The Desperate Ones."
