The Rolling Stones: Harlem Shuffle

Nina Simone, Brolin, I.B.E. and more in the first installment of our weekly music recap previously aired on Twitter

Thursday, 21 February 2012 would have been the inimitable Nina Simone’s 80th birthday. Here she is performing Ain’t Got No, I Got Life—a hit she developed for the musical Hair—at an outdoor concert in Harlem in the summer of ’69, a series she headlined along with B.B. King, Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder and more, which became commonly known as “Black Woodstock.”
