Nina Simone’s sixth album for Philips Records was ‘Wild Is The Wind’, an intriguing collection of jazz ballads and traditional folk tunes. The title track was originally recorded by Johnny Mathis for the 1957 film of the same name, but it was Nina Simone’s beautifully mournful version that inspired David Bowie to cover it for his ’76 album ‘Station To Station’. Ever politically engaged Nina Simone’s composition ‘Four Women’, an angry history of black women’s experience, was controversially banned in certain quarters due to concern over the lyrics. Her stunning version of James Shelton’s ‘Lilac Wine’, featured here, once again provided inspiration to Jeff Buckley who aped her arrangement on his debut album ‘Grace’ in ’94.
