  • $24.98

Pastel Blues, features 'Be My Husband' and was written by Andrew Stroud, Simone's husband and manager at the time. She sings it a cappella with her handclapping and a hi-hat as her only accompaniment. The song was later retitled as 'Be Your Husband' and covered by Jeff Buckley on Live at Sine-é (2003). The album also features covers of Billie Holiday songs, 'Tell Me More and More and Then Some' and 'Strange Fruit'. 'Sinnerman' is one of Simone's most famous songs. Simone learned the lyrics of this more than 10 minute song when it was used on revival meetings by her mother to help people confess their sins
