Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the February 2007 Issue of Stereophile!
Nina Simone's Emergency Ward includes live performances and several George
Harrison covers. Simone further embraced George Harrison on this album devoting
over half of it to his music. Another politically charged set, this part live
album has it's cover daubed in Vietnam war newspaper cuttings. It may only have
four songs, but the album still stretches to over 33 minutes thanks to the
charged "My Sweet Lord"/"Today Is A Killer" medley.
