Artist: Nina Simone
Title: To Love Somebody
Product Type: VINYL LP

Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. No slouch as a songwriter herself, Nina Simone ably picked a variety of compositional classics from the new Rock era for her 1969 LP 'To Love Somebody'. Opening with a beautiful, introspective version of Leonard Cohen's 'Suzanne' Simone shows an obvious affinity for social statements with the Byrds' 'Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)' and a trio of Dylan standards: 'I Shall Be Released', Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues' plus a dramatic, meditative 'The Times They Are A-Changin'. The album title is taken from the Bee Gees song 'To Love Somebody'. Her cover of the song became her second British hit single after 'Ain't Got No-I Got Life'. Also 'I Can't See Nobody' is a song by the Bee Gees. 'Revolution' (parts 1 & 2) was Simone's third subsequent single released in the UK, after 'Ain't Got No-I Got Life' and 'To Love Somebody' both became hits.
