Nina Simone at The Bitter End - 1968

As I prepare the next Dreamtime podcast on The House of the Rising Sun, here's a clip of one of my favorite covers of the song, Nina Simone performing at the Bitter End, in 1968. The text roll at the beginning made me smile and feel old simultaneously... "`60s-style Black power at its most lashing." Simone also performs Go to Hell, which may better fit the "Black power" tag
