Nadine Cohodas: “Horace Ott and his writing partners gave this song to Nina - though the Animals took it away from her, if you will. Her version version - without that group’s bluesy muscle - has its own searing power.”
Nadine Cohodas: “Nina’s meditation on how black women found their place in a world not of their own making. ‘I had to go into all kinds of bags to be able to compose it,’ is what she said before performing the song at the 1967 Newport Jazz Festival, a couple of years after she wrote it.”
