This is real Soul
Urban Strigidae | 12/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you want to understand why Nina Simone is the High Priestess of Soul, Get this DVD."
Nina Simone lives
Philip G. Pryor | Turramurra, Australia | 06/12/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a powerful video of old performances, done in her active time in the USA civil rights movement. It's still strong, relevant and artistic, though moving and even risking offence to some. It's instructive also, showing a mature, committed, intense artist in control of material, techniques and the attentive audience itself. Worthwhile."
Brilliant - a revelation.
G A Lankester | North London, United Kingdom | 04/17/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have adored this Diva since age 12 in 1965 and "I put a spell on you". Strangely until I viewed this DVD I had not even been touched so forcibly by the human rights issues - yes I knew they were there but not one after another and another - NO! Blame me for living in UK!
However, this DVD reinforces the strength of this great icon of the 20th century. I love and respect her even more now. The commitment and passion is so much more evident. Dr Simone - you are a saint - your approach laid the way for Barak."

"Reelin' In the Year productions are always first class. I have many of the Jazz Icon DVDs, Blues Festival DVDs, and their excellent Marvin Gaye, Temptations, and Stax Revue DVDs. (There's even more but you can look them up on their website). People are now trying to imitate them, but it's not quite the same, especially in the Jazz Icons area. These are the standard. You like Nina Simone? You'll love this DVD."
