In the 1980s, Nina Simone's recordings, particularly those cut in the studio, tended to be a bit erratic. Fodder on My Wings, which was recorded in Paris, is certainly all over the place, although mostly rewarding. Simone is joined by a rhythm section and occasionally a pair of unidentified horns (trumpet and tenor), an organ, and background singers. The repertoire includes the quiet ballad "Il Y a un Baume a Gilhead," the rollicking "Liberian Calypso," a unique unaccompanied and mostly out-of-tempo interpretation of "Alone Together Naturally," and a brief satirical "Color Is a Beautiful Thing." There are also singalongs, brief throwaways, and aching ballads. Far from flawless, there are enough strong moments to make this set of interest to Nina Simone fans. ~ Scott Yanow
