Put a Spell on You is Nina Simone's 1965 jazz album. The album features title track, "I Put a Spell on You" which had reached to #23 in the U.S. charts. Simone shaped the original rock/blues single by Screamin' Jay Hawkins into an eerily moody, unrestrained, and drama filled track. I Put a Spell on You also produced hit renditions of Jacques Brel's "Ne me quitte pas" and Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley's "Feeling Good".


One of her most pop-oriented albums, but also one of her best and most consistent. Most of the songs feature dramatic, swinging large-band orchestration, with the accent on the brass and strings. Simone didn't write any of the material, turning to popular European songsmiths Charles Aznavour, Jacques Brel, and Anthony Newley, as well as her husband, Andy Stroud, and her guitarist, Rudy Stevenson, for bluesier fare. Really fine tunes and interpretations, on which Simone gives an edge to the potentially fey pop songs, taking a sudden (but not uncharacteristic) break for a straight jazz instrumental with "Blues on Purpose." The title track, a jazzy string ballad version of the Screamin' Jay Hawkins classic, gave the Beatles the inspiration for the phrasing on the bridge of "Michelle." --AllMusic Review by Richie Unterberger
