Let It All Out is one of Nina Simone's more adult pop-oriented mid-'60s albums, with renditions of tunes by Duke Ellington ('Mood Indigo'), Billie Holiday ('Don't Explain'), Irving Berlin ('This Year's Kisses'), and Rodgers & Hart ('Little Girl Blue'). As ever, Simone ranges wide in her selection: Bob Dylan's 'The Ballad of Hollis Brown,' a swaggering adaptation of 'Chauffeur Blues' (credited to her husband of the time, Andy Stroud), the gospel hymn 'Nearer Blessed Lord,' and Van McCoy's 'For Myself.' 'Images' is an a cappella adaptation of a poem about the beauty of blackness by Waring Cuney. All of Simone's Philips albums are solid, and this is no exception, while it isn't the best of them.
