Discumentary: Nina Simone "Nina Simone Sings the Blues"


"Nina Simone Sings the Blues" was released in 1967.  She was trained as a classical pianist while growing up, and embraced jazz early in her career. This album was unlike anything she had recorded at that point in her career, a raw and rough approach to the Blues. 

Discumentary: Kirsty MacColl "Tropical Brainstorm"


Discumentary: Liz Phair "Exile in Guyville"


Upon its release, Interview Magazine called Exile in Guyville "folk rock that could make you blush". This is Liz Phair's response to the Rolling Stones classic Exile in Guyville -- a pretty big undertaking for a debut album.
