This album contains classics "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free", which would become a Civil Rights anthem and "It Be's That Way Sometimes", written by her brother Sam Waymon. 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Ms Simone also takes on Dusty Springfield by covering "The Look Of Love", which was originally featured in the 1966 James Bond spoof Casino Royale. She's greatly inspired by Mozart in the fugue-like "Consummation".

1967 seems to have been a good year for Nina Simone. Nina Simone began her seven-year recording contract with RCA with Nina Simone Sings the Blues in 1967, and followed it in the same year with Silk & Soul, recorded for RCA Victor at the label’s Studio B in New York City in four sessions in June 1967.

After moving from the blues to soul for her second RCA album, Nina Simone's extroverted, confident delivery proved a natural match with the ranks of soul shouters working the crowds during the late '60s. A plane ticket to Memphis or Muscle Shoals could've resulted in one of Simone's best works; unfortunately, this set was recorded in New York, and it shows. Simone does well taking on Dusty Springfield for "The Look of Love," though the sedate supper-club backing doesn't quite jive with her smooth, studied performance.
