Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. Includes insert. Emergency Ward! (1972) is Nina Simone's statement on the Vietnam War, and by dealing with matters more spiritual than political, this album aptly reflect the events of the day. The entire first side consists of a 18-minute medley of George Harrison's 'My Sweet Lord' and a poem by David Nelson called 'Today Is a Killer' set to music by Simone. This is a very strong, gospel-like performance, sometimes resembling the Capitols' 'Cool Jerk' with a call-and-response vocal arrangement and is one of Simone's finest moments. It was performed together with the Bethany Baptist Church Junior Choir of South Jamaica, New York. Side two consists of the Lennie Bleecherā's Jeremy Wind song 'Poppies' and George Harrison's 'Isn't It A Pity'.
