|Status:||SIGN UP FOR RESTOCK NOTICE|
Little Girl Blue (also known as Jazz As Played in an Exclusive Side Street Club) is the debut album by the legendary pianist, and songwriter Nina Simone. It features such classics like "Love Me Or Leave Me", "Mood Indigo", "My Baby Just Cares For Me" and "Don't Smoke In Bed". It was originally released by Bethlehem Records in February 1959. At the time, Simone was in her mid-20s and still aspiring to be a classical concert pianist.
Simone's relationship with Bethlehem Records was a troubled one, as she believed the label didn't do enough to promote her first album. Moreover, after she left the label, Bethlehem released an unauthorized collection of left-over tracks from the Little Girl Blue sessions as Nina Simone and Her Friends. She would never record with Bethlehem again.
This new 2021 remaster features a brand new stereo mix by four-time Grammy winner Michael Graves. It also includes new essay by author of 'Liner Notes For The Revolution', Daphne A. Brooks.
