The first album by Nina Simone was recorded for the Bethlehem label in late 1957 and released in 1958. It contains the song "My Baby Just Cares For Me", which became a hit in the mid 80's generated by an animated music video heavily played on MTV. Nina Simone was paid a one-time $3,000 for the royalties for the recording.
"Little Girl Blue" is the debut album by Nina Simone for Bethlehem Records. It was also released as "Jazz As Played in an Exclusive Side Street Club" & " The Finest Of Nina Simone I Loves You Porgy". However, the back track list read "Little Girl Blue."
