Pastel Blues Vinyl Re-issue
ARTIST: Nina Simone
Pastel Blues' by Nina Simone was originally released in 1965. The most notable tracks bookend the LP - opener ‘Be My Husband’, sparsely produced with just voice, handclaps and hi-hat, and the classic closing track ‘Sinnerman’. Alicia Keys counts 'Pastel Blues' among her favourite ever albums, and I'll wager she's not the only one.
