NEW VINYL LP ON 20TH CENTURY 2020

180 GRAM COLORED VINYL.

When Forbidden Fruit appeared on the Colpix label in 1961, Nina Simone’s popularity was just beginning to grow and wouldn’t reach its peak until a few years later. She was just 28 years old, but her overwhelming voice was already fully developed and made it easy to foresee a long career that would place her as one of the most important singers in jazz history. In the following years her music and her commitment for the achievement of civil rights would catapult her as an essential figure in Afro-American music. On Forbidden Fruit she is already a breathtaking performer and a formidable pianist. On the songs “No Good Man”, “I Love to Love”, and “Where Can I Go Without You”, she draws an overwhelming panorama of all the nuances of love and passion, offering unforgettable interpretations that have lost none of their emotional strength.
