Liner notes by Andy Stroud, Producer
"Nina Simone / Live at Berkeley" is just that - a recording of a concert before an audience of nearly five thousand student of the University of California at Berkeley in October, 1969.
This record captures the electricity generated by the performance of one of the "Living Dynamos" of this century - and the "Sparks" returned by the audience experiencing it.
