In her music, rooted in gospel, she sought a path which took her down a middle course between jazz and pop, thus earning her the title of High Priestess Of Soul as in the LP title with her rock fans in the Sixties. The present blues album was recorded during what was undisputedly her most productive phase. It is a recording which does not swim with the tide of the times in that it does not employ massive forces or seek the twang of electrification.
It opens with the sultry, nocturnal, slow-burning original "Do I Move You," which doesn't beg the question but demands an answer: "Do I move you? It pleases me The other tune in that vein, "In the Dark," is equally tense and unnerving; the band sounds as if it's literally sitting around as she plays and sings. Other notable tracks are the raucous, sexual roadhouse blues of "Buck," written by Simone 's then husband Andy Stroud , and the woolly gospel blues of "Real Real," with the Hammond B-3 soaring around her vocal.
Simone also reprised her earlier performance of "House of the Rising Sun" released on a Colpix live platter called At the Village Gate.
