Nina Simone In Concert 1964
Wiki: Nina Simone in Concert is an album by singer/pianist/songwriter Nina Simone. It was her first album for the record label Philips and was made up of three live recordings in Carnegie Hall, New York City in March and April 1964 (previously, she had recorded Nina Simone at Carnegie Hall in 1963 for Colpix Records). This album marks the beginning of "Nina Simone, the Civil Rights singer" in her recording career (she had already incorporated the civil rights message in her performances). Included on the album are politically laden songs, most notably the self-written "Mississippi Goddam", released as a single at the time. But also "Old Jim Crow", "Go Limp" and the haunting "Pirate Jenny" contributed to the message in a covert or methaporical way.
Lyrics: I left a note on his dresser my old wedding ring With these few goodbye words How can I sing Goodbye old sleepy head I'm packing you in like I said
Take care of everything I'm leaving my wedding ring Don't look for me I'll get ahead Remember darling Don't smoke in bed
Don't look for me I'll get ahead Remember darling Don't smoke in bed
