About this item

'Nuff Said!' Is an album by jazz, blues and gospel singer / pianist / songwriter Nina Simone. It was recorded in front of a capacity crowd at the Westbury Music Fair in April 7, 1968, just a day after the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King. The track 'Why? (The King Of Love Is Dead)' was written by Simone's bass player Gene Taylor especially for the occasion, and the whole program that night was dedicated in his memory. Elsewhere the set includes classics like 'I Loves You Porgy' and 'Ain't Got No; I Got Life', while 'The Backlash Blues' was penned for Simone by the great Langston Hughes. 

 In 1969, the album was placed on peak 44 in R&B Albums Chart. The album received an Emmy nomination.
