Released:
Label: Rca/Legacy
In the album's first two seconds, Nina asks, "Do I move you?/ Are you willing?" foreshadowing the strain of sly, sexual innuendo that slivers throughout. On "In the Dark," a lover presses his fingertips against her lips and pleads with her to keep still, while the central metaphor in "Want a Little Sugar" really needs no explanation. Smokey and confident, Simone's voice is a national treasure and she easily takes to the blues. The raw, roadhouse quality of the genre brings out the best in her, making for a quintessential release.
