Nina and Fairuz

Today Oreilly Radar had a link to a clip of Nina Simone on YouTube. From there I saw an amazing video which mashes her album coves and some video while playing I Got It Bad (and That Ain't Good). I can't think of one location for such a range of images of Black women -- and its all Nina!
Unfortunately YouTube does not carry a video of Misisssippi Goddamn from the mid-60s, when t was released. Could be that one does not exist.
I Got It Bad was put together by nouhcs52. Checking other videos from the same source brought me to Fairuz: Ya Tayr. I'd forgotten Fairuz existed!
