1965 album reissued on 180-gram vinyl
Features "Sinnerman," "Be My Husband"
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 Sin-é (2003). Fans of the 1999 film thriller remake "The Thomas Crown Affair" starring Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo will also recognize the timeless Nina performance of "Sinnerman". The album also features covers of Billie Holiday songs, "Tell Me More and More and Then Some" and "Strange Fruit".
