High Priestess of Soul is a studio album by singer/pianist/songwriter Nina Simone (1933-2003). The songs are accompanied by a large band directed by Hal Mooney. The album contains popular songs (such as “Don’t You Pay Them No Mind”) and Church-African-Folk-related songs (such as “Take Me To The Water” and “Come Ye”). Nina Simone was often titled the High Priestess Of Soul, although she wasn’t very fond of the title herself, because it placed a label on her as if she were only a soul artist. Read on...
