Introduction

Recording sessions
1969 October 26: New York Philarmonic Hall
My name is Ed Williams and I've been asked to introduce Miss Simone to you this evening
That for me is a pleasure I'd like to welcome you.
I'd like to introduce the men in the group: on the drums Don Alias, on one guitar Emile Latimer, on the other guitar Tom Smith, on the conga drums Juma, and on the organ lyricist composer Weldon Irvine.
You know truth you respect truth you're not afraid of it you can set the welcoming table.
Langston Hughes. The justice is a blind goddess is a thing to which we black are wise.
Her bandage hides two festering sores that once perhaps were eyes.
The High Priestess of Soul Miss Nina Simone
