Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Uncut - 5 stars out of 5 -- "The songs Simone wrote or covered in response to the Civil Rights struggle of the 1960s suited her throaty snarl perfectly."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.122) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Over the course of 3CDs, we bear witness to a singer who had no equal. Simone carved phrases with that smoky tenor, a natural instrument so regal that her whisper packed more power than the caterwauling of lessers who compensate with overkill."

Blender (Magazine) (p.81) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "She squeezed audiences with a mysterious intensity, and this three-disc set is rightly heavy on the live tracks."

Paste (magazine) (p.66) - "TO BE FREE: THE NINA SIMONE STORY stirringly captures Simone's journey from a reluctant cabaret performer to one of the most powerful voices of the Civil Rights era."
