Nina Simone - Fodder On My Wings (2020 Verve Label Release) (LP)

One of Simone's Favorite Albums On Vinyl LP

Recorded in 1982, not long after she moved to Paris, Fodder On My Wings was one of Nina Simone's favorite albums. In addition to having written the music and lyrics for all but one of the album's 13 songs, the back cover proudly states that she "arranged, conducted and conceived" all of them. Originally recorded for a small French label and only sporadically available since its initial release, Fodder On My Wings is a lesser known but important part of Nina's musical history.

Long considered an outlier in her catalog, Nina Simone's newly reissued 1982 album is an intimate and immense portrait, a culmination of Nina Simone's frustrations molded into a jarring personal statement.
-Sheldon Pearce, Pitchfork, 8.3/10
Musicians:
Nina Simone



piano, vocals, harpsichord, shaker, tambourine, harmony


Sydney Thiam


congas, bells, woodblock


Paco Sery


percussion, tympani

Sylvain Marc


electric bass, vocals
