Nina Simone: Fodder On My Wings LP

Nina Simone

Verve, 2020

Recorded in 1982, after moving to Paris, Fodder On My Wings was one of Nina Simone’s favorite and most obscure albums. Released under a small French label and only sporadically available since then, this is the original album version making a long-overdue appearance. Expanded with three bonus tracks, Fodder On My Wings is an essential Simone album, which came at a time when Simone was rejuvenated by her surroundings and by the African musicians she met in her newly adopted France.
