Nina Simone - Baltimore

Nina Simone recorded her fabulous version of Randy Newman's "Baltimore" for her 1978 album of the same name. She simply reggaefied Newman's quiet piano ballad that first appeared on the 1977 album Little Criminals giving it a funky shine that fits the song perfectly and also became the template for reggae group The Tamlins' 1979 version. It's hard to say which version is the best, but Simone's is definitely a contender.
