In the spring of 1957, a young woman studying piano at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia--who would go by the stage name Nina Simone--was hired to play piano at the Queen Mary Room in the old Hotel Rittenhouse for $100 per week, and was soon discovered local record companies. By December '57 she had been signed to record her first album on the Bethlehem label, originally titled Little Girl Blue, but soon repackaged as My Baby Just Cares For Me, and the rest became history. With Philly friend Al "Tootie" Heath on drums and Jimmy Bond on bass, this album has long been considered Nina's best. Tracks include: Mood Indigo, Don't Smoke In Bed, He Needs Me, Little Girl Blue, Good Bait, Plain Gold Ring, You'll Never Walk Alone, I Loves You Porgy, Central Park Blues and My Baby Just Cares For Me.
