Description

At the Village Gate [Import] on CD

It was said that to fully appreciate the splendour of Nina Simone, you had to see her perform live. Since her touring

schedules didn't always allow for worldwide tours, her record company at the time (Colpix) very thoughtfully

ensured there was plenty of live material out on the market - her first seven album releases featured no fewer

than three live albums!

What each and every one proved was the Colpix had a point (and it should be pointed out that Nina had full creative

control, meaning she decided what she released). Nina Simone performing live was almost like being hit with

an electric shock - when Nina started singing or playing, everyone stopped and took notice. At The Village Gate

features an interesting mix of folk material with traditional African American songs, including House of the Rising

Sun, which of course became something of a signature song for The Animals.
