The High Priestess Of Soul pays tribute to the queen herself, Billie Holiday. Despite the decades that divide the two singers & the fact that Holiday was from the North (Philadelphia) & Simone was from the South (North Carolina), the two pioneering vocalists are united not by their music, but by the fact that both women put their musical careers on the line to sing about racism & the atrocities being committed against black Americans. Holiday's harrowing 'Strange Fruit' (included here) & Nina Simone's 'Mississippi Goddamn!' are parallel protest songs, although Lady Day was singing hers decades before the Civil Rights Movement. These eight amazing Billie Holiday classics, including 'Tell Me More & More Then Some', 'This Year's Kisses' & 'Give Me A Pigfoot And A Bottle Of Beer' are given the full Nina Simone treatment - a rare opportunity to enjoy two legends in one sitting! 180 gram vinyl. Get Back. 2003.
