Nina Simone first recorded the song in , very early in her professional career. The recording took place in Philadelphia with a strings arrangement and was not intended for release at the time. In April she went into a New York Studio with her band and recorded a number of songs. On the first date, April 4, she recorded Mississippi Goddam , the political song that she composed immediately after the bombing of the church in Birmingham, Alabama. That same event triggered John Coltrane to write the mournful tune Alabama.
In the studio that day she was joined by Rudy Stevenson on guitar and flute, Lisle Atkinson on bass and Robert Hamilton on drums. I have to give Nina credit for being aware that I could bow, and she utilized it a lot. She had me playing a lot of arco in performances. The version Nina Simone recorded in April appeared a couple of years later on the album Wild is the Wind.
That record included the title track, another landmark cover that influenced David Bowie to also cover the song on his Station to Station album in There are two performances of the song by other artists that stand out for me.
