Liner Notes by David Nathan
With her pacting to Philips Records in 1963, Nina's international visibility as a one-of-a-kind artist had noticeably altered when Colpix decided to put out one final album in 1966. Tagged Nina Simone with Strings, it contained some previously unreleased material and some tunes that had been issued to which strings were supposedly added. In reality, there was little evidence of a string section on much of the music contained therein!.
