Nina Simone - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood Live

In a thrift store in a very small town in NW Arkansas I found a stash of vintage Nina Simone records. I'd never really listened to Nina but knew her by reputation. When I found her version of Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood I was amazed. I found this clip of it live in Paris.

  1. Not a cover, it was written for her. She wasn't happy when The Animals did it.

    1. Ahhhh thank you Mark.

      I could image she would be pissed. That also explains why I like her versions better.

  2. Unfortunately for we American's her Ex-Husband/Manager Andrew Stroud made sure she would not be able to return here as he managed her finances and when she went back to Babados he squandred all her money and did not pay her taxes and the US put a warrant out for her on tax evasion:-(
