Gatefold sleeve.

"I attended a Nina Simone concert at the Drury Lane Theatre in London in December 1977. Nina played and sang to an ecstatic, packed house. It was clearly evident why her concerts have always been regarded by critics and audiences as an "experience." A month later, I went to Brussels to produce this Nina Simone recording. I have recorded many diverse and talented personalities over the years, but I was not prepared for the "experience" that was to follow in the recording studio. When Nina walks into the studio she radiates the most magnificent intensity of any artist I have ever seen. And when she begins to play and sing she turns everything - even the most simple, mundane phrase or lyric - into a radiant, poetic message." -Creed Taylor
